Troll: Street Fighter X Tekken Sells 5 Million, and Sales For Other Fighting Games


mod edit:

Probable lies

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


Street Fighter X Tekken: 5 Million

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


This site has a section for fanfics, you know.


numbers need sources


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


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.


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


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.


*looks at posters account…Troll account detected!


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.


“member since today”

shut the fuck up and take a walk scrub:tdown:


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