Resident Evil 5 Becomes Capcom’s Best-Selling Game Ever

Resident Evil 5 has become Capcom’s best-selling game ever, outstripping the legendary Street Fighter II.

Except it kinda hasn’t really. Resi 5 may have sold 6.5 million copies across PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, compared to SFFII’s 6.3 million on Super Nintendo, but that only tells half the story as SFII released on just about every single platform ever.

Regardless, the way Capcom calculates it puts Resident Evil 5 ahead of the competition with a truly impressive number. Check out Capcom’s chart of every one of its million plus selling games through here. Looks like Resi 6 may catch up with its predecessor before long.

The news comes as Capcom reports a increase in sales of 16.9 per cent to ¥53bn (£336m) for the half year ending September 30th. The company’s net income also climbed 20 per cent to ¥4.95bn (£31m).

But whatever, Street Fighter II is still miles better than Resident Evil 5 though, right? We’re all agreed on that? Guys?
