Resident Evil 4 Remake Scores 8th Biggest Series Launch In Boxed UK Sales

Christopher Dring has revealed on Twitter that Resident Evil 4 Remake has become the eighth biggest series launch for the UK in terms of physical sales.

It’s an interesting stat and one that may be perceived as a lower than expected, seeing as how Resident Evil 4 is one of the most popular games in the franchise and anticipation for a remake must have been high. However, it’s worth remembering this is just boxed sales; digital sales account for a large chunk of purchases in the UK nowadays, so we’ll just have to see how the game sold digitally.

Still, Resident Evil 4 Remake managed to beat Resident Evil 3 Remake’s launch sales, as well as the GameCube release of the original Resident Evil 4.
