Dead Rising 3 has shipped 1 million copies

Capcom's Xbox One launch game on track to meet 1.2m sales expectation by the end of March.

Capcom has announced that its Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 has shipped one million copies since its launch at the end of November.

The period for the figure runs between the Xbox One's launch on November 22 to December 20, and Capcom adds that the title has been played for a cumulative total of 14 million hours worldwide.

Capcom expects the game to sell 1.2 million copies before the end of March 2014, which seems likely in the wake of the current sales tally.

Earlier this week Capcom released a 13GB update for the game, which updated the open-world zombie squelcher to prepare it for its first chunk of DLC: Operation Broken Eagle.

Microsoft recently said that the Xbox One has now sold 3 million units worldwide.

Dead Rising 2 sold 2.2 million copies within its first 5 months.  I wonder if what Microsoft paid Capcom for exclusive rights made up for the loss they could have got by making this Multiplatform instead.

Can any game beat Core Designs' record?
Almost all Sega CD owners bought a copy of Thunderhawk :)

About 33% of Xbox One owners own DR3 and Forza 5. Which game will be next?

The game is really, really good, not only because it's open-world. The combo weapons are awesome, the story is more serious and the characters are nice. There's a lot of things to discover and when you'll hack'n slash in a crowd of 1000 zombies in front of you, you'll realize how the game is fun.

And just think... you would ship more copies if you dumbasses didn't buy into console war B.S. PC and Sony gamers would buy it too.

I think DR3 is a cool concept and I enjoyed its two past games. However with that said, I wished they took on a serious tone with DR3. Cartoon fun is all good and well but when it's been done to death two games before... then it gets tiring. The only reason the game is selling this well is because it's open world. Basically not something the series have done before. DR4 is when it's going to become very dry unless they inject a great story with a likable protagonist surviving in a zombie apocalypse.

Since last gen MS always sold more games than Sony. Bankruptcy risk is just for market losers and supporters...

No no it doesn't specifically because aiming in the Last of Us is terrible it would likely miss hit something else the bullet would then ricochet off and hit The Last of Us in the Eye killing it instantly.

@deadpen pretty good actually,it's not like it decreased my storage space.

@toddx77  That's why it's Important to know Exclusive console games don't sell well very often Because of the price tagging here.

@pszone I'm sure MS payed well for it's exclusivity, All exclusives would see significant sales improvement if they were multiplat. That's why companies pay to keep it exclusive or make a first party studio. Why would that make them stupid?

@lubbalots Okay, lets see; selling a million copies after three months on a new system with practically no competition as far as games are concerned is actually a disaster as far a Capcom is concerned, I'm sure. Also, you'll note that they say "shipped" and not "sold", which is even worse. Devil is in the details, my friend.

@lubbalots They'll probably start by trumpeting how their last-gen titles look better on PS4.... Note how they fail to reference Knack or Contrast in any argument. They'll fly that Killzone banner for a bit and then rinse and repeat

I say 720p 15fps game.


Not a fanboy because its true.

@Pilgrim117 It's a lot of fun and actually manages to not get old or repetitive. Thank the combo weapons for that

I disagree I think so long as they craft an even more expansive open world with more new places to explore Dead Rising 4 will do just fine. At the end of the day its gameplay that makes a good game so long as the game play is fun and interesting the story doesn't matter.

@Kjranu DR is suppose to be light-hearted. You forget this series was born at a time where all you had was the "serious zombie survival horror" games. So you're basically asking it to assimilate

@de-astroturfer It's actually a really good game... Not our fault Knack or Contrast didn't live up to expectations

@Vinnvn It's actually not true the frame rate holds up quite well 90% of the time, not too mention they just patched it to fix some of the issues. Not to mention the sheer craziness of literally hundreds of zombies on screen at once with realistic gore and differing appearance. Killzone can't even handle 60fps in its SP and Ryse looks better than any Sony exclusive so I don't see your point

Actually the series started much before these other Zombie Survival Horror games did. Only one I can think of that was before it was Resident Evil.

DS3 didn't live up to expectation by many too.


I waits for response referencing next-gen Knack or Contrast...

@DrizztDark So I run my own company and you spend most of your time hitting pixelated zombies with sticks. I think you need to seriously reconsider your definition of a successful life.

@Vinnvn@cejay0813@lubbalots Oh I forgot Resogun... Side scrolling shooter ftw... aaaand flower... no one mentions these.

They're all like the retarded cousin that the family doesn't acknowledge is in the room but that every knows is there

@Vinnvn@cejay0813@lubbalots What about them.. Ryse was decent and I haven't played the cycle game... You merely just named two exclusives that I already knew about. My point was that when it comes to exclusives that are out now, PS4 fanboys get reeeeal quiet.


Knacks framerate dips with 3 goblins on the screen and he does that spinball attack a la sonic


And Contrast has to be the single most boring and game as far as graphics, story, replayability, etc in any gen.


Killzone is a graphical expansion of what we've seen from past titles. It's pretty but its the same old boring Killzone.


Like I said, the only argument is how great the last-gen titles look, but that about it
