Probable lies

[details=Spoiler]
The highly-anticipated crossover Street Fighter X Tekken has exceed well above Capcom’s expectations, selling 5 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling fighting game of 2012 so far, and the best-selling fighting game since Super Street Fighter IV, which sold 6.3 million copies worldwide. It is also not only the second best-selling Capcom game of the year after Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, which sold 5.8 million worldwide, but also the second-best selling game of the year overall. It topped the NPD charts for March by selling 3.2 million copies, beating out EA’s Mass Effect 3 by more than a million.

As a result of SFXT’s success, the underperforming Namco fighting game Tekken 6 jumped from 840K copies to 1.4 million, making it the 8th fighting game this gen to break the million barrier. It had the biggest sales boost for a fighting game since Super Street Fighter IV. Meanwhile, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which will be available on Sept. 11, has a pre-order sales of 91K, an all-time high for the Tekken series. Looking at its pre-order sales, it’ll be interesting to see how much TTT2 will sell.

As for the other fighting game releases this year, Aksys Games’ BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend has sold 2.9 million copies since its release, making it the best-selling installment in the BlazBlue series and the second best-selling fighting game of the year. The sales of BBCSE adds a series total of 6.7 million, which makes it the 4th best-selling fighting game franchise worldwide after Tekken, Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. However, Namco’s Soul Calibur V did not fare well, only selling 87K since its release, which is a far cry from Soul Calibur IV’s 710K and is the worst selling retail game of the year. Digital fighting game releases fared worse as Konami’s Skullgirls and Sega’s Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown only sold 42K and 53K copies respectively.

this is so funny considering that capcom already stated that they have sold only 1.4 millions to retailers of the 2 millions that they expected


#4

Street Fighter X Tekken: 5 Million

Really? I know it sold considerably well, but not this well.


#5

This site has a section for fanfics, you know.


#6

numbers need sources


#7

capcom sold 1.4million to the retailers,
the retailers have sold around 0.6 to 0.7 of said copies to the public


#8

It’s nearly impossible actually, considering how much Capcom reported not to long ago. I seriously doubt it got an almost 4-mil boost since then.

I absolutely love the game and it did alright sales-wise, but Capcom already put it on record that it underperformed.


#9

I need evidence, I do not believe this at all. I like the game personally, but 9 out of 10 people HATE it.


#10

Uh… huh? If it sold this well Capcom would be trumpeting to high heaven. As we know now they shipped 1.4 million and sold far less.


#11

*looks at posters account…Troll account detected!


#12

What’s crazy is, The SFIV series moved, roughly, 6.5 million copies. For a "2D" (not a pretty 3D) fighter, that’s insane! I doubt that will ever happen again. . .unless, you know. . .they stop spamming the fucking SF games for a while.

Published data contradicts you. Agreed that this seems to be fanfic.
