As part of their Q3 earnings report this morning Capcom the life-to-date sales for some of their biggest titles last year.
Topping the list was Monster Hunter Freedom 3 for the PSP at 4.1 million units sold. Which is all the more impressive considering it hit that number with only one month of sales, and only saw a Japanese release.
Dead Rising 2 pulled in some equally impressive numbers with 2.2 million units sold worldwide in just three months at retail, beating Dead Rising’s LTD sales by 500K. Keep in mind though the original title was an Xbox 360 exclusive, while Rising 2 saw a multiplatform release on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Bringing up the bottom of the list was Super Street Fighter IV and Lost Planet 2 at 1.6m and 1.5m respectively.
