Capcom Japan has released the worldwide sales figures in a press release for Resident Evil 5; 4 million units have sold. The game launched on Friday in the US and Europe, while it released in Japan nearly two weeks ago (under the moniker of ‘Biohazard 5’) on March 5th.
The 4 million figure means that it is the highest selling Resident Evil ever. No specific figures for the consoles like the PS3 or 360 have been released, but we’ll find out the US numbers next month during NPD results for March in the 2nd week of April.
Read Anthony’s review for it right now, I highly suggest you get this game. It’s really good.
