The Platinum Titles list is for games that have sold over 1 million copies. In August that list revealed Resident Evil 7 has sold 9.8 million copies (later over 10 million), while Monster Hunter Rise has sold 7.3 million copies.
Since August the list has seen some changes. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has surpassed Resident Evil 5 and 6, while Monster Hunter Rise has blown past Resident Evil 2 (1998), and Street Fighter II and V.
Resident Evil Village has also surpassed Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 3 (2020); though it should be noted Capcom recently announced the game had sold 5 million (not 4.8 million as seen below). Street Fighter V has fallen one position on the charts due to the above, and has yet to surpass what was ahead of it in August.
Resident Evil 5 and 6 have now sold 8 million units. Other titles that had 4.3 million or less in August are unchanged.
