Devil May Cry: 10 Million Shipped

You'd think, at face value, that the appeal of a game series starring an effeminate, shirtless man in leather pants would be limited. Think that, though, and you'd be dead, dead wrong.

Instead, Capcom have today announced that the series, which first began on the PS2 in 2001 (and has since moved to the PS3, PC and 360 as well), has shipped ten million units worldwide. It's another annoying "shipped" statistic from Capcom, meaning it's not ten million sold through to customers, but for a series that's eight years old, the sell-through numbers are probably very, very close to that ten million mark. So we'll cut it some slack.

As an interesting aside, the announcement press release concludes with "Aside from the announcement of a Blu-ray release of the Devil May Cry anime today at the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009, Capcom plans to continue developing more franchise releated (sic) products."

With games, books, comics, figures, statues and an anime series, there's not much left to do but make a movie. That or a line of official leather clothing.

    Mark my words the next devil may cry has you playing as sparda himself. Although i have been burned by crapcom's games this gen, RE5 was not what i was looking for from RE and devil may cry 4 sucked hard, i mean fighting the same bosses THREE TIMES, FFS. Haven't picked up street fighter IV yet, but i bet there will be pDLC for new characters, the bitches.

    anyone watch the street fighter IV anime, i'm pretty sure that ken has the same voice actor for dante(at least the dmc 4 dante, not sure if its the same voice actor in other games) in the english dub, i only realised that till i got to the end. B=

    ...you fought the bosses three times in the original dmc, and it is heralded by many as the best in the series

    Loved the first DMC.
    Skipped the second.
    Didn't particular like the third
    HATED the fourth.
    Not sure if I just got sick of the formula, grew up, or they actually got worse
