Public relations dragons do not breathe fire, oh, no. They spew out reams of in-game footage and press releases full of complementary adjectives.

    so you can rent out your companions. The game seems interesting, but I will probably wait for reviews.

    Capcom's Dragon's Dogma producer Hideaki Itsuno said that they aim to sell 10 million units of the game worldwide, he also stated the forecasted sales in Japan is one million, and it will be a challenge to make it successful worldwide.
    Is it just me, or does this seem a bit too ambitious? The game looks nice and all, but so far the main attraction for me is still the RE6 demo, heh.

    It's not just you. 10 million is, like, Call of Duty numbers. Nobody sells 10 million copies of a brand new IP. Not shooters, not RPGs, not sports games, not even Portal (OK, Portal 1 may have sold 10 million by now, but that includes times when it has been free or nearly so on Steam). I mean, Skyrim shipped (not sold) 10 million units, but Skyrim is the fifth entry in one of the most famous RPG series in history.

    I'd compare this to Reckoning, a new IP that sold 330,000 boxed copies in North America during its first month, according to NPD. Reckoning had a huge PR campaign and was far better-known to gamers before its launch than Dragon's Dogma is shaping up to be. How in heck Capcom intends to get those sales is completely beyond me.

    10 million sold? Uh, first it would need to be a seriously awesome game, then it would need to review well, and be at a decent price point to attract attention, then marketed right and hit a sweet spot in the year where there's little competition for it's niche...then it would need to sell another 9 million copies. :/

    I love Reckoning and I'm willing to give this a shot should it prove to be fun, but it hasn't sold me on it yet.

    10 million sold? Clearly Capcom has gone mad from Monster Hunter monies

    best I can tell monster hunter tri (the last console entry for the franchise) has sold just over a million copies, so unless the entire population of la-la land (where Itsuno must live) buys 2 copies, capcom might be in for some disappointment.

    They want 10 million copies sold?

    Well, I want to look like Sephiroth and have a threesome with Emilia Clarke and an 18 year old Chloe Moretz.

    On a side note, the game does look pretty awesome.
    sup?

    I was going to pick it up first, but let's be realistic here - considering it's only two weeks after D3 is released, I wouldn't touch it for months. Will probably just end borrowing the RE6 demo disc from a friend instead, and wait for the full game.

    And yeah, it's pretty naive to think they're going to sell 10 million copies of a game that has no establishment (as a series or a name) whatsoever.

    Are they thinking that the whole "Western" vibe will be enough to sell one to 10 million people the world over? That's just setting yourself up for failure, right there. I guess we'll see.

    If the game turns out to be what I'm hoping it will be, then yeah, it could sell well, but 10 million? I don't think a FF game has sold that well. VG Chartz doesn't even give any FF game 10 million sales.

    Dr. Evil must be their marketing director...

    releasing a discounted version on steam a month or two after release couldn't hurt.

    just sayin...
    sup?
