Resident Evil HD Is Capcom’s Fastest Selling Digital Game Ever


The HD Remaster of Resident Evil has become Capcom’s fastest selling digital title in North America and Europe in the company’s history. Capcom said this morning that it has also broken the record for the highest first-day sales on the PlayStation Network.


“It’s been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have enjoyed this new release,” said producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi. “The team here at Capcom Japan have worked hard to bring the game to the latest generation of consoles and we are thrilled at this news on its performance.”


Capcom did not provide sales figures for the HD re-release of Resident Evil. The game, originally on the Gamecube, was released last month on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
