Capcom: Devil May Cry 4 is now double platinum

Riding through fields of cash on the back of their hack and slash money machine, today Capcom announced that Devil May Cry 4 has officially went double platinum selling over 2 million copies worldwide. This announcement comes hot on the heels of news that the DMC4 demo served 1 million gamers and word that the 360 version overwhelmingly outsold the PS3 version. We're thinking Capcom is quite proud of their decision to take DMC4 multi-platform seeing all the success the game has already had. We're also thinking 1.5 million of the 2 million copies sold were probably on the Xbox 360. Oh yeah, we so went there.

DMC4 Demo: Over 1 Million Served

Released at the end of January, the Devil May Cry 4 demo has undoubtedly helped in selling the game and spreading the word, but would you believe that the demo has been downloaded over a million times? It's the truth, brought to us by the same Capcom rep who gave the PS3 install response. With games like Lost Planet and Dead Rising its obvious that from early this generation, Capcom has been supporting XBLM with demos. It looks like their system is working and now over a million people have some form of DMC4 in their hands. Here's hoping that all developers and publishers now see the potential of demos to sell a game.

DMC4 for Xbox 360 outsells PS3 in UK

It's been said that the most important thing in this generation of hardware is exclusive software that helps differentiate one console from another. While Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony have had their share of exclusive third-party titles (of varying quality) the most talked about issues stem from titles going multiplatform. Such was the case for Devil May Cry 4, which when announced for the Xbox 360 and PC sent Sony loyalists into a maddening spiral of rage. The incentive for publishers to distribute once exclusive titles across multiple platforms opens the flood gates of potential profits (Read: monies) and that excuse seems to be paying off for Capcom.

According to a report from the initial sales figures of DMC4 favor the Xbox 360 version in the UK claiming 61% of the title's total software launch sales while Sony and the PC share the claims the remaining 39%. While we think it's great to have quality releases from Capcom in this generation for the Xbox we doubt anything they do can ever make up for Dino Crisis 3.

Update: Whoops, the PC version hasn't been released.

TheManRoom's Devil May Cry 4 Giveaway

The only thing better than a trickle of solid game releases after the holiday season is getting one of those games on-the-free. TheManRoom is offering one lucky reader a chance to win a copy of Devil May Cry 4 for the Xbox 360 or the PS3. Residents of the United States and Canada are invited to enter the contest once per day until the draw closes on February 22 at 9:59pm PST. We recommend the Xbox 360 version, only because we tend to play games as soon as we insert them into our consoles and not when we're planning to take a long hot bubble bath while it installs. But hey, that's just us!

PS3F reviews Devil May Cry 4

It looks like our good friends sworn enemies at PS3 Fanboy managed to snag a copy of Devil May Cry 4 a little early and even had the audacity to post a review of the game. As we are apparently not worthy to receive a copy of our own (please, Capcom!), we figured we'd point out the review for our readers. For the most part, everything in the review should apply to the Xbox 360 version as well. You know, things like good gameplay, great graphics, and wonky camera angles. Those things should pop up on your 360 as well. You should, however, disregard the mishegoss about installing the game onto a hard drive and also the single reference to the O button. Everything else should be copacetic. Oh, and in case you're wondering, the game looks to be pretty damned good.

Free $10 gift card with DMC4 or Turok purchase

Last week, we mentioned that if you pre-ordered either Turok or Devil May Cry 4 at Circuit City you could score a $10 gift card. Well, it looks like they've extended the offer to anyone who purchases either game this week, pre-order or not. From Tuesday through Sunday, Circuit City is offering a $10 gift card to Turok, DMC4 or DMC4 CE purchasers and (for those who like their guides) is also taking $10 off the DMC4 strategy guide's price tag. No too bad of a deal, especially if you've recently put yourself in the DMC4 or Turok market after playing the game demos.

Shipping this week: Nero sans fiddle edition

Golly gee willickers there's a lot of games out this week. First of all, we should mention that Turok is officially out this week (though it was released early in some areas; we saw it at Blockbuster yesterday). The star of the show this week is probably Devil May Cry 4 though, what with its demon slaying antics and longstanding pedigree. But wait, what's this? There's more? Yes, it seems the post-holiday dearth has finally ended (for the moment anyway), as this week sees three more titles as well. All told we have:
  • Devil May Cry 4
  • Turok
  • Culdcept Saga
  • The Spiderwick Chronicles
  • Karaoke Revolution: American Idol Encore
See, there's something for everybody (even gamers dying for a CCG / Monopoly hybrid). Not bad. Not bad at all.

Halo 3 for $38 and free gift card w/DMC4 pre-order

If you're currently in the market for a fresh copy of Halo 3 then you're in luck, because this week Best Buy is offering Master Chief for the cheap. Through Sunday, they're selling standard edition copies of Halo 3 for the gotta have it price of $38. We are also hearing that some Best Buy stores are super clearancing out leftover Legendary Edition copies for as low as $79, but your mileage will vary on that. This week we also spotted a solid pre-order deal over at Circuit City where you can score a free $10 gift card when you pre-order either Devil May Cry 4 or Turok. Finally, on the hardware side of things, Circuit City has taken $10 off their entire lineup of 360 wireless controllers (including pink and black) and our friends at Best Buy Canada are offering an Xbox 360 Pro bundle (which comes bundled with GRAW2 and RSV) for $399.

That's about it for crazy exciting deals this week. Remember to spend wisely and make sure there's food in the pantry before spending this week's entire paycheck on video game goods.

X3F hands-on: Devil May Cry 4 demo

If you have an Xbox 360, you're pretty much obligated to download the Devil May Cry 4 demo. There are two reasons for this: 1) you're really excited for Devil May Cry 4, whether it's because you love the series or are a fan of action, or 2) you know this is the first Devil May Cry game for an Xbox console and you're trying to figure out what group number 1 thinks is so great about it. Truth be told, we actually fall somewhere in the middle, as we have played bits and pieces of previous Devil May Cry titles but have never actually completed one. Given our limited experience with the series, we can safely say that the demo provides more of what fans have come to enjoy, and uninitiated action fans should definitely take note. Read on for our impressions of the demo.

Devil May Cry 4 demo hacks, slashes XBLM

Well, kiddies, the day has finally come. The Devil May Cry 4 demo has arrived on Xbox Live Marketplace. 612 megabytes of "Stylish Action," the demo promises both "advanced gameplay" and "cutting edge graphics." We're itching to try the demo out for ourselves, and if it doesn't deliver on both fronts, then we're calling shenanigans. As we mentioned Tuesday, the demo will allow players to take Nero for a test drive -- complete with sword revving action -- and even includes a good old-fashioned boss battle. Expect our impressions of the demo later today.
