Resident Evil 5 ships four million copies worldwide

Capcom has got all boastful as of late, taking time out to tell us they have shipped over four million copies of Resident Evil 5 to retailers worldwide. Remember, that is shipped, not sold, so the number of people currently playing the game might be less, possibly a lot less, as it could take weeks to move that initial shipment.

However, the number does show Capcom has some serious faith in the game to manufacture that many copies, and spend the cash to ship them worldwide.

In the same press release, Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil: Degeneration, the first CG movie based on the series, has now shipped over 1.5 million copies worldwide on Blu-ray and DVD.
