resident-evil5It appears that a highly popular Resident Evil 5 demo was not a game-killer for Capcom’s horror title, on the contrary: the developers have reported that sales of RE5 are impressive already, with four million units being shipped until now (indeed, not sold units, but Capcom would clearly not create too many copies just for bragging rights!)

The demo of Resident Evil 5 saw, as I reminded you earlier, four million downloads too, breaking Capcom’s own internal records for a new Resident Evil launch. It seems that it’s going to be the most successful release in the franchise, despite the economic problems. It appears that shooting zombies in a high quality game is enough to make you spend some money!
