For comparison, here are the sales of other fighting games as of June 30th, 2011 (Capcom), March 2011 (SSB Brawl), May 12th, 2011 (Tekken 6), and March 2009 (Soul Calibur IV):
SSB Brawl: 10.27 Million
Tekken 6: 3.5 Million
Street Fighter IV: 3.1 Million
Soul Calibur IV: 2.3 Million
Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: 2.0 Million
Super Street Fighter IV: 1.6 Million
If anyone has final shipment numbers for Soul Calibur IV, that would be greatly appreciated, since then we can see how the fighting game rebirth went as a whole.
