    Looks like all those articles about 3rd partys still failing were wrong. Capcom is doing better and they expect their sales to be higher this year.

    Here's an article someone wrote about it:

    I was one of those people who didn't know. I always thought 3rd parties were failing miserable from the articles people posted. I guess it wasn't as bas as people thought.

    That's awesome - hopefully that will mean no financially related delays on anything under development - I've GOT to have me some Resident Evil 5 soon.

    Man if Zaki and Wiki was a mega man game with the same engine it would have sold like crazy! Oh yeah Sengoku Basara 2 Heroes (Devil Kings) is good really good!

    Nice find! It's great to hear that Zack and Wiki isn't doing as badly as many thought.

    Not to be a downer, but it's one article, and with PR buzzwords replacing actual numbers. But it's nice to hear at least something positive, even if I personally think it's a little suspect.

    EDIT: Before I get jumped on, I'm not saying the game hasn't broken even, or that it hasn't made any money - which I'm sure it has - but compared to other lesser titles that have sold 10x the amount, it's still not good enough IMO. If it wasn't for Europe, the game would have bombed. So I think we all owe Europe a thanks for recognizing it as a great game, and more than likely funding a sequel.

    Wow, has it sold ~200k in Europe or has the US market actually recognized Z&W as a good game, and finally have gone out and bought it?

    From what I read, the game barely sold 50k units in the first week of release in the US, as compared to the ~75k in Europe in almost half that time. I'm not even going to talk about Japan, heh.

    Wow, thats great news and those are great numbers.
    The producer said Zack and Wiki has a good shot at a sequel, I guess now we know why. Thats good though, both Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Zack and Wiki are great games.
