Capcom Disappointed with Current Sales Numbers

Capcom has reported their official earnings for its 2013 fiscal year, and it didn’t look very good for the company. While sales numbers did go up 14.6% when compared to last year for a total profit of about $950 million, their net income dropped a whopping 55.8% compared to 2012.

Hmm...Well there's this thing, Capcom, called "Appealing to your consumer base, by giving them what they ask for." Don't know if you've heard of it.

Snookies121960d ago

No. No, they've definitely NEVER heard of that. I can guarantee that one lol.

i wish i had bubbles like you

That's not going to be easy since most of the original developers have left Capcom

booni31960d ago

It's laughable to think that they expected big sales for DmC when flocks of fans cried foul right up until the game released. You made your bed Capcom. Now it's time to lay in it.

At least it was a good game and stayed true to the genre. Resident Evil on the other hand...


I won't say it's a bad game or a bad fast paced hack'n'slash, it's highly personal, but is it a good Devil May Cry? I think that's the point.

There is nothing wrong with expanding to accomidate a more diverse audience. Unfortunately, Capcom have done it all wrong. I agree that they should cater to their loyal fans.

I am disappointed in Capcom and that is why I have not bought their games. Instead of making their franchises unrecognisable to their fanbase they should either create spin offs or a new IP.

Capcom disappointed their fans by not giving them what they want
As well as re releasing the same games with new characters and slapping full retail price on them
Shame on you capcom

On disk DLC
Charging for every little thing
Canceling Megaman
Releasing same game with DLC for $40 within 8-9 months or original release
Messing up resident evil franchise
Becoming greedy bastards
Most of your home grown talent that made you a fan favorite have either left you for western publishers or have formed their own studios in Japan
Sequels,sequels and more sequels
One of your most talent developer had to hide dead rising from company till it was 50% done in fear of it being cancelled
Rebooting DMC and making fun of or being arrogant towards DMC fans
Making so many versions of Street Fights that I stopped counting
Charging for character which were on the disk

capcom keep this up and you will be going out of business in near future. It's so sad that not that long ago capcom was a fan favorite and now they can't do nothing right.

Also releasing new dragon dogma game for $40 while not offering the expansion to those who already have the game via DLC so making just the DLC part $40

Releasing real ending to Asua Wrath via DLC only

I mean what's wrong with you?

Listen to your fans for once and get back to greatness, otherwise I hope y'all go out of business in hope of anther publishers picking up some IP's and doing justice to them

Japanese publishers are just stupid and totally out of touch with west, they expect their games to sell millions upon millions and when it doesn't than hey blame the fans. Manage your talent and budget better and Mae development faster so you don't need to sell 5 million copies just to break even

Tomb raider selling 3.4 million within first month and SE complaining yet most games if they get to 3.4 million its considered a huge success.

hazelamy1959d ago

they've heard of it, it's just not something they want to have anything to do with.

They should be disappointed in their leadership and whoever makes decisions around there.

IAmLee1959d ago

Surely they seen this coming?

just announce Dead Rising 3 already.

Enemy1960d ago

Yeah that should ensure their survival and make things right again, another generic zombie game!

Seriously, Capcom have been digging their graves for years now. They don't care what trash they put out. They don't care what their fans think. They continue to ruin their best franchises so obsessively it almost seems like they're doing it on purpose. They deserve no sales.

jc485731959d ago

as far as I can say, I don't care about Capcom because I've lost hope for the company. I just think is unfair to alienate Blue Castle (now Capcom Vancouver) when that company has great potential.

majiebeast1960d ago (Edited 1960d ago )

1 game can change it Marvel vs Starwars vs Capcom or Rival schools 3. Less crap like SFXTK.

wishingW3L1960d ago

Megaman X9!
Marvel vs DC!

Magnus1960d ago (Edited 1960d ago )

Bring me Breath of Fire and a Great Maximo game

BoNeSaW231960d ago

YES! Maximo HD collection!
