Capcom announced today that Resident Evil 5 has crossed the four million mark in worldwide shipments. The title was released to Japan (under the name Biohazard 5) on March 5 and to North America and Europe the following week, on March 13.
This figure amounts to the game's first shipment. Capcom noted that it's the highest first shipment figure in series history.
The company did not provide system-by-system breakdowns for the game. First week Japanese sales reports from Media Create last week listed the PS3 version at 319,590 units and the 360 version at 79,157.
The Resident Evil series as a whole has shipped 40 million units worldwide as of March 16, according to Capcom.
