Capcom has reported encouraging half-year financial results, which include an increased net profit of 55% - around £354million GBP.
Very sad to know. They killed Resident Evil they dont deserve to have positive results.
shipped does not equal sold
if it shipped out their warehouse into retailers that means they sold it what happens in the retails has nothing to do with them
We're talking about financial results.
Yeah cause they donated the games to retailers for free right?
But they made Dragon's Dogma, one of the best games this year. I think they do.
shipped is different than sold. silly capcom. don't get cocky.
What's the difference? Don't they get paid regardless?
Capcom gets paid for shipped units, so of course they will report sales as shipped, all publishers do.
Silly blahblah346, don't you know that shipped is more important to the publisher? Do you know what that is? It is because the publisher makes all of their money on copies shipped. The only time they make money on copies sold is if you buy directly from the publisher.
Really rustles my jimmies when the most financially successful companies are those that put out the worst and most generic games.
I look at it like this. As long as other companies such as as NIS America, Platinum Games and Atlus make profit as well to stay in the game, it supports me not giving a damn about greedy companies.
Love those companies. Always putting quality first. Also, Arksystems and SNK are greart, hardcore developers I would add to the list too :). I can't wait for Atlus's Persona 5!
Says the man with a Bioware based Avatar and a Bethesda based username.
No shame in Bethesda's Fallout games. I hope BioWare goes bankrupt.
its easy to turn a profit when you slice out 1/3 of game that's on the disc and resell it as dlc *cough* sfxt *cough*
It's all those £0.79 DLC outfits that are making them money. :) That and the old SF4 > SSF4 > SSF4AE revisions that appear on all of their main franchises.
And quiet as kept, Capcom had a good year.
They don't deserve positive financial results.
You kidding me on DLC alone they should have been laughing all the way to the bank. Damn crapcom.
