Capcom: Dead Rising 3 Will Sell over 1.2 Million Copies

Capcom predicts that its next game in its third-person zombie apocalypse series, Dead Rising 3, will sell over 1.2 million copies on Xbox One. This prediction on sales of the Xbox One exclusive was part of a financial document for the first half of the financial year ending March 31, 2014. While Capcom might be excited about that number, it's a lot lower than the original game for Xbox 360, which sold 1.8 million copies. The multi-platform sequel did much better with 2.8 million units sold.

The document also revealed that it expects the 3DS title Monster Hunter 4 to sell over 3.3 million copies by the end of the financial year. Capcom predicts that Resident Evil Revelations Unveiled Edition and Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen have met expectations, selling one million and 650,000 units respectively. Sadly, Lost Planet 3 fell short of its expectations, shifting just 300,000 copies worldwide

    "In before it would sell more if it came out on Wii U."

    Who would say that?  It's an Xbox One exclusive, not a title that's hitting every similarly-powered console except the Wii U.

    Anyway, how can they be this sure? The Xbone has a poor rep despite MS attempts to clean up, and i doubt it will sell that many consoles by MArch next year. And not every one that is buying one will want Dead Rising 3. And lots of fans dislike hte new direction.

    Tl;dr – i dont think it will sell this many copies.

    Slightly off-topic:

    You know what would be a good start for Capcom? Removing GFWL from it's current PC games library.

    That includes (in the order I can recall games in my library):

    • Resident Evil 5
    • Street Fighter IV (the original one)
    • Super Street Fighter IV
    • Dead Rising 2
    • Dead Rising 2 Off The Record
    • Lost Planet
    • Street Fighter X Tekken
    • Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
    • Lost Planet 2

    Did I forget anything?
