Capcom’s Resident Evil 5 has now shifted more than 400,000 units on PlayStation 3 in Japan, according to the latest Media Create data.
The action horror sequel, which launched in the Land of the Rising Sun on March 12, has now drummed up approximately 410,000 sales in the region on Sony’s black box, outpacing its Xbox 360 counterpart in the process.
So far the game has turned in a solid performance around the globe, having topped the UK Charts for the past fortnight as well as outselling Irish rockers U2’s latest album.

Well this is great news, but over all according to vg chartz, worldwide sales ps3 is up over xbox by 204k units, but that gap is getting smaller and smaller every week. And it is selling much better in the states on the xbox.

I love gaming. I've been a happy go lucky gamer for as long as I can remember, but I have been deeply saddened by recent events. My Xbox Live account subscription was nearing its end in December of 2008. I do not like auto renewal services so I use prepaid cards. My account ended on 12/27/2008 and I activated a 12 month + 1 month prepaid card on 12/30/2008. I set my account status to not auto renew; however, the auto renewal took place anyway and on 3/2/2008 my account was cancelled because the credit card on file was expired. I didn't think this would be a problem since I had used a prepaid card. After providing the 'secret answer' to my account's 'secret question' many times to Xbox Live support, I have been told that I can take one of the following options:
* Pay $54.11 to have my account reinstated and have 22 months of service (12 from the auto renew and the 10 remaining from the prepaid card)
* Have the $54.11 waived and be denied the remaining months on my prepaid card as they are tied to the account that would remain cancelled.
This just does not at all seem reasonable. I do not want an entire year's worth of extra service, but the only alternative is to lose 9 months of service that I have already paid for! What should I do in this situation?

Please, and goes to all of you, don't use vgChartz as your source. Tha site fails in all aspects, recently they said Uncharted sold 2.6 millions and now 2.3. Please, don't use them as source, they are not trustfull.

I know it won't do it, but I want RE 5 to sell better than Gears of War. I hate Gears of War

I love the game. I am sad it is going to take 8 years for the next one.

I smell retardation coming from an inbred American massively brainwashed by the media to support a monopoly. Get back to the deepest corner of your mother's basement and shine your Master Chief helmet =D

After what Capcom did to the DMC series I could care less if it becomes a XBOX exclusive.
