Capcom Reports Sales Worse than 2012, Monster Hunter 4 Drives Sales

Capcom's financial report for the last nine months of 2013 are now in, and while numbers are solid, they do not match up to those in 2012.

The story is too old to be commented.

It should be Monster Hunter 4, and dang, Capcom, how will their mobile games division save them?

Alex_Boro1768d ago

Fixed haha, and I hope Capcom doesn't focus on their mobile division.

If only Nintendo didn't buy the rights to Monster Hunter for like 4 titles or w/e they did.

Hope next ones return back to Sony so they can sell tons on PS4 / Vita.

Monster hunter doesn't really have the type of story ps3 4 gamers would like. It is more about game play. Tlou is what you guys want. Killzone, uncharted and movie gaming. That is going to kill this industry.

It sold 4 mil alone in japan, so that's not good?
Spending money on an expensive game like Deep Down is what will continue to hurt Capcoms profits! Make a proper MegaMan game already, that's what the fans want.

that was by far the most sony fanboy comment i ever herd well one of them atleast i agree with scissor_runner

Well Capcom, do not release games like Resident Evil 6, I am sure they lost money on that POS, and make another one like 4, and I bet you will do much better. Resident Evil 1 on Gamecube and on Wii are the BEST

Dinn't RE 6 Sold 5.6 Millions ? (Third Place)

It undersold their expectations, considering this was a game jointly developed by all three branches of Capcom (US, EU, JPN). They spent quite a lot of money on this title.

It cannot get my head round why they don't launch monster hunter to more platforms instead of wii ( where sales are tailing off) and wiiu where there is only a small user base. Lost planet has only a small fan base and they can't keep releasing the same street fighter over and over

I agree,
I am big monster hunter fan and they have always been kind of odd with their mh release choices.

Its one of the great capcom mysterys :)

Actually sounds pretty good if you read the article and not just the headline.. over a million sales for DR3, well done Capcom.

MILKING FRANCHISES, UNNESSARY REBOOTS, NOT USING OTHER POPULAR FRANCHISES, NOT LISTENING TO FANS, MILKING FANS AND COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH CEOs this is what you get capcom

princejb1341768d ago

Last game I bought from them was street fighter 4
Been disappointed with capcom since than
They should really release monster hunter on ps4 and xbone

Rockstar1768d ago
