Interesting things to note: Resident Evil Revelations was the fifth highest selling game in all of Japan for the month of January, despite only being available during the last 6 days of the month. Also, not only did the game sell more than Soul Caliber V for the PS3, it sold more than Soul Caliber V for the PS3 and the 360 combined. And as of this morning at 9:00am, Resident Evil Revelations is either sold out or on back-order at Amazon.com, Gamestop.com, Walmart.com, and Toysrus.com… I stopped checking websites after that.
