Chances for ZX3 Higher Than We Thought? Maybe (Not).
Here's the scoop: We all know that Capcom's goal was to sell a minimum of 100,00 units of ZXA before the end of the fiscal year (which I believe is at the end of March, not sure) to possibly garner a third entry.
However, going by VGChartz's data, ZXA is just 10,000 or so units off. Maybe maybe not.
I took the liberty of asking around the VGChartz community to see how accurate their data was.
The results? VGChartz data is off.
Which means one of two things:
-ZXA PASSED the 100,000 units mark way back. But, we've yet to hear even a whisper of a follow up, so that could mean...
-ZXA sold BELOW that 90,000 something number.
For fun, I spoke with a Capcom rep concerning the VGC data. Apparently, I was told that various Capcom games on record are off from a 3,000-10,000 unit range.
Capcom informed me that VGC's data is based off of estimates, some numbers do not include small retailer stores and several online shops as well.
I was recommended to keep an eye out for press releases every so often from Capcom IR for "official stats and numbers."
So pretty much, we're back to square one: not knowing what the heck is going on with ZX3.
Where do we go from here? Should we just wait it out? Or, continue to squeeze Capcom and/or Inti-Creates for some official words?
