    Clearly Resident Evil does well on Wii, why we can not get a more serious effort from Capcom surprises me. Forget the issues with Hardware and what not, the fanbase is here, its time for a true Resident Evil game on Wii.

    Your thoughts?

    Great find.

    Quite surprised at how many Mario & Sonic sold, but the more the better. Also surprised at how many Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition had, for some reason I thought it would have more, but maybe I just got them mixed with the other Resi games.

    Great news for third part companies.

    Yeah, the problem with RE4 was that literally everyone got the GC/PS2/PC version so they didn't see the point in the Wii Edition...shame...was a brilliant game.

    I got RE4 Wii Edition because the memory card I had was corrupted, the one I used to save the Data on the Gamecube version. So I never got to finish the game, I didn't even make it to the second disc. After getting the Wii version I was able to finally go through the whole game, and what a game it was.

    That experience made me buy Umbrella Chronicles as well, and now I would love to see a true Wii Resident Evil title.

    It's not going to be R.E 5 and I'll be damned if we get R.E 6 any time soon.

    We may never see a true 're' again to be honest...they were left behind at 1, 2 and 3. 4's formula was so new and different...

    Yeah Resident Evil 0 is no loss to me, I got a copy of it with my Gamecube in a bundle and played through it enough. At least with RE4 I never got the chance to beat it.

    What I would like is something thats not re-hashed stuff, no ports or crossovers. Just plain original, maybe a Wii exclusive? It may cause Capcom problems as they could still do the other games for the other systems, but clearly Resident Evil sells well on Wii, imagine what a fresh experience could do sales wise.

    I got the gamecube version when I first got my wii and there weren't too many games out I wanted for wii. Stopped playing it right away when I heard the wii version was coming out. Finally got a copy of the wii version and just arrived at where I was when I stopped playing the gamecube version. Looking forward to the rest. Just dunno what to do with my gamecube copy of the game.

    What sucks is half of those games suck :/ The games that should actually sell don't.

    MySims FTW. It's such a cute game. I'm glad it sold a lot, hopefully EA makes more like it!

    I still haven't been able to play much of RE4 on the Wii. I've only played it once. Now it's one of the next games on my list. It would be great if they just made another great RE on the Wii. Not RE5 but something like a prequel to it or just another version of it.
