Recently we informed you that according to the stats gathered by ResidenEvil.net, which deals with recording player achievements, over a million people have played the Resident Evil 2 remake. Today, Capcom released a press announcement, which shows that 3 million copies of the title were shipped during the first week of sale. Interestingly, the original Resident Evil 2 was bought by almost 5 million players across 20 years. The remake will probably break this record.
