Brain food! While you're busy trying to avoid getting crunched by hordes of Majini, Capcom's busy crunching Resident Evil 5 sales figures by the hundreds of thousands: well, one and a half million, to be exact.
Yes, the NPD software sales figures for the month of March have already been released, and in that report, we find RE5 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 bringing home the bacon (and the meat, and the brains, and the guts...).
In total, RE5 has sold just a little over 1.5 million in North America alone. For the record, Microsoft was right on the money when they said last month that their console would sell more RE5 units than Sony's did. Here's the breakdown:
Anyway, 1.5 million as a whole isn't a number to brush aside easily either. That's one huge achievement. Remember, RE5 got released only towards some time half into the month of March. And again, that's for North America alone. I wonder how many copies of the game has already ticked over sales counters worldwide so far.
