It has been almost 13 months since
Capcom released Resident Evil 4
essentially reinventing their once-muddled franchise by making a sequel that
may surpass even the original, and certainly pulled off an incredible feat by becoming both a critical darling and a
huge seller. In fact, according to Capcom, Resident Evil 4
sold over 3 million copies since its release -
quite an amazing feat.
Of course, figures like that can only make Capcom smile from ear to ear, and here
are some more numbers that are sure to perk them up: Capcom's net income was $62.7 million, which is a staggering 418%
increase from its income in the year prior. While it may not have been EA's year of glory
, at least one publisher
can remember 2005 fondly.
