The latest financial report from Capcom revealed that they will be leaning on the Playstation 3 for the 2009-2010 fiscal year.
real ps3 is doing good
Hmm 10 PS3 titles and 11 X360 titles? Maybe Lost Planet 2 will stay exclusive after all.
How can this be? xbox 360 has a 8 million lead and PS3 is just a bluray player... /s
It's too bad that Capcom doesn't release at least one PS3 exclusive. They know it will sell well seeing as they're both Japan based companies. TGSI
3rd parties exclusives is going the way of the DODO this gen. I accept that. However i expect more respect from Capcom as we have supported them for quite a long time. I mean i heard that the x360 Dead Rising 2 will get something special for x360 fans for supporting it. Hell, what about PS fans with DMC 1,2,3?. Capcom is full of sh1t. I would forgive them if they actually created a stellar game but sofar all of their offerings this gen has been crap for me personally. Compare to how they stormed the gaming scene last gen with the stellar DMC and Ominusha and offcourse RE4 i am very dissapointed with them this gen. They haven't evolved since then.
Just how badly the sales for companies like Capcom are taking a hit due to piracy... Since you can download many of the titles released and play them on the 360 for free, yet for the PS3, it is hardly an issue. Interesting.
I don't understand why they think the PS3 is going to be their bread and butter and yet they still seem to insist on Monster Hunter being a Wii franchise and Lost Planet 2 being a 360 exclusive. Makes no sense. I think Lost Planet 2 will eventually come to the PS3, but I don't know about it. But I would bet money that after Monster Hunter 3 is done, the next console Monster Hunter will be on the PS3.
I bet they are RE5 sold most on PS3 SF4 sold most on PS3 DMC4 sold most on PS3 what capcom needs to do is stop "Leaning on the PS3" and show their appreciation and support it more. like cmrbe said where is PS3 exclusive gameplay or timed exclusives games. Heres hoping they do the PS3 right with a Ninja Gaiden sigma 2 type of upgrade for Lost Planet 2. Or a PS3 exclusive Monster Hunter 4 pl co op monster hunting with the power of cell.... YAY!
it's the wrong fiscal year.ha false positive for fanboys
Capcom --> expects <-- but that doesn't ensure that those expectations will be met does it? Sony and Guerrilla probably --> EXPECTED <-- faster and larger sales numbers for both Killzone 2 and the PS3 when the game was released...
Resident Evil 5 (Capcom) PS3: 2.0 million 360: 1.8 million
i would like a new Mega Man game and.. well that's all I can think of at the moment.
This is nice, bring us some exclusive. Lol that lost planet 2 thing was a bit saqureish.
"Buh..Buh..But the Lead"
Ken Kutaragi is Amazingly Clever!!! Shame hes gone :-( I blame the internet LIES really :-/ The way they twist peoples words and that. Oh well, he WILL have the Last Laugh!!! ;) When you switch on the PS3 it just Oozes Quality ;-P When you switch on the ChatBox 360 it just...RRoD's ;-D
OMG Sir Ken, you're on teh newz!! :D what a handsome man indeed.
Ken is one bad motha...shut yo mouth! Ken! He's the man. Lmao.
Not only are they a dissapointment but also the way Capcom treated their loyal PS fanbase is inexcusable. Bring a really good Ominusha then perhaps i will forgive them.
Their "loyal PS fanbase" is on the 360 also. A large chunk of current 360 owners were ps2 and ps1 owners. Now with the 200 dollar 360 most of the ps2 owners making the jump to hd are buying 360s.
Really?. Do you know what a large chunk means?. MS said they shipped 31 million x360. The xbox userbase was at 28 million when it the xbox was pulled. This means at most there are 28-29 million x360 out there. Are you saying that the majority (large chunk) of the this current x360 isntallbase are PS2 and PS1 owners?. What happened to the 28 million xbox owners when the xbox was pulled. Logic suggest that the majority of xbox userbase started migrating soon after the x360 was released and when the xbox was pulled while most PS2 owners still haven't migrated yet since the PS2 is still supported. What happened to the 28 million xbox owners?. They migrated to the PSP?. Look if you are going to play with me at least bring your A game as your effort was just weak.
Of my own personal friends, I know precisely FOUR ps2 owners who own a 360. And one of them is me. The other couple of dozen 360 owners that I know all owned Xbox's last generation. And, in addition to that fact, every one of my former-Xbox-owning friends is now a 360-owner except ONE, and he went with the PS3. I can't speak for the rest of the world, because my sample size is about a millionth of the number of 360 owners, but pretty much indispensably every Xbox owner I know is now a 360 owner, and most PS2 owners are not Xbox 360 owners (as I said, 4 including myself... the rest are split... about 1/4 went Wii, 1/4 went PS3, and the remaining half haven't bought any next-gen console yet). And I think that's the important point: I think that that sampling holds true for the whole PS2-owning population, that at least half of them have not yet bought ANY console in the current generation. There's still a lot of them that need to make the jump.
I agree dude. I want a new Onimusha too! I swear if Capcom announces it, I'll replay the entire series. *__* I have the whole Onimusha series too.
I always thought that PS2 gamers that bought only a 360 are by far the worst "class" of gamers. They say that they have been deluded by PS3 while they didn't even bought it.
Where is this 120+ million chunk of ps2 migrating to 360 you speak of socomnick? Are you daft or just completely deluded? I don't even need to use my butt to disprove your inane statement. Stop kissing your own MS tatted ass.
Mostly everyone I know on XBL had a Ps2. Scratch that. Almost everyone had a Ps2.
I agree, I haven't bought a single Capcom game either.
Holy monkey $h1t, did you see the new pics for King of Fighters xii, and Mature, Elizabeth. My manhood of doom is so hard, I can chop wood, LOL. I'll say it again, "Capcom, youu better 3rd Strike back, seriously." It's in the 360 section
in a suit wtf there are no straight artists left at snk.
She looks just as deadly, hope her sprite animation, compliments her new look. + the eye patch SNK, is the ATLUS, of fighting games. But do you like it
You just can't buy Capcom games when your consoles at the repair shop for a month.
bublles for the laugh..
That was nice, and nobody disagreed cuz they know its true hahah.
Timed exclusive Lost Planet 2 for PS3
Monster Hunter 3 confirmed
Kinda weird... I mean, most of their games sell pretty much evenly between the 360 and the PS3... I just wish they had a better tool to make PS3 games... can't just spend 5 gigs in a harddrive just to play one game from them.
bu bu bu, teh salez, teh PS3 is only good for teh blu-rayz moviez???
slowly, very very slowly but surely 360 fanboys are starting to feel... ...uncomfortable.
360 fanboys have been "uncomfortable" day-one. Day-minus-one. We are talking sore winners and spoilsport winners who wanted the PS3 to fail like the Dreamcast.
now i just like to ask a simple question capcom if it is ok ......................WHERE THE HELL IS ONIMUSHA 5????? cough um sorry havent taken my meds lol
You have to factor in PS2, PS3, and PSP sales. PS2 still sells a boat load of games.
now try to explain that to the rest of x360 trolls.
Nope Capcom expecting boost sales on PS3. 4.9mln ONLY PS3 --> http://ir.capcom.co.jp/engl... "The third-party company expects to sell a combined 4.9 million software units with 10 new Playstation 3 titles plan for the fiscal year of 2009-2010. This is way higher than the previous year in which the eight Capcom games on the Playstation 3 sold a combined 1.75 million units."
Yet they are still screwing us, how is this leaning on PS3? You expect more sales one PS3 yet your still "showing your thanks for MS support" by giving them exclusives? You forget PS2 was your console of choice and how much Sony did for you? Oh wait they didnt buy out exclusives rights and didnt pay you to screw them over for DMC4... I dont likw how Capcom is running right now. Where are the promised trophy updates for games like DMC 4? Where are sonys exclusive content? Why are you still bothering with exclusives when you know your games sell better on the Japanese console? Makes no sense to me, maybe Capcom can explain it better at E3....
It's okay man, you got 3 major factors in play w/your list why. Major Capcom producers, leaving to form Platinum Studio's, Time, and hardware dedication constraints. Capcom's Westernization plan, you ever check their style of games lately.
Kinda weird with 66% of PS3 are just only a blu-ray players. /sarcasm
I think the article is completely wrong The financial results published are about 2008 fiscal year and not 2009/2010 as he wrongly wrote. read this--> http://ir.capcom.co.jp/engl... The 10 and 11 titles mentioned are'nt NEW TITLES but games published until MARCH 2009. The "expeted PS3 boost" is fairly obvious because SFIV and RE5 are pretty solid franchises in the sony market. I'm not shure but that documents are quite simple to read...
"Consolidated Financial Results of the Year ended March 31, 2009" http://ir.capcom.co.jp/engl...
Leaning on ps3 for sales? thats like using tiny little sticks to hold up a skyscraper. $ony IS not the company you go to if you want good sales. kz2 anyone?
i agree 100%. capcom is setting themselves up for a fall. if they are looking to sony for sales LMFAO. sony's marketing is a joke. their exclusives barely sells. thats why they have to bundle games. i mean seriously capcom must want to lose money. oh well i will be laughing next year when they report money loses dealing with sony.
I see you guys are drowning in the ocean of epic failure. Should I secure the lifeboats?
F 'em. Let them drown in their own misinformation and bias...
Not obsessed. It just amazes me when you say the stupidest things and I can't help but point them out. Don't call people hypocrites when you're the very definition of a hypocrite.
same person with multiple accounts?
you are a hypocrite and a coward. i have proven that in the past. so now i one because i was given a ps3 and i won't sell it to make you and the rest of the SDF happy. cause i hate sony. aaahhh. how many people on this site claim they have both consoles but they prefer the ps3 over the 360. and they bash MS every chance they get. but your trying to single me out. get over it. the reason why your so both by anything i have to say. is because i called you out. and everything i said was true. and the fact that most of the people on this site could relate to what i had to say. shows that i was dead on right about my claim. do us all a favote juuken/ultimolu/ lady death strike/ whatever other account you use. GROW THE [email protected] UP. and play the so called exclusives that you a and all the rest of the [email protected] claim are the best ever.
because it will be over very fast with very few games to be announced. See, I could be an ass too, stop trolling the PS3 thread if you hate the PS3 so much.
I struck a nerve didn't I vega? You own both consoles and yet you have so much hatred invested on the PS3. If you were a true gamer, you would see that both systems have their ups and downs. As much as I feel Microsoft could have done a better job with the hardware, the 360 is still a pretty good system. If you really think I care what people think about me on this site, you're wrong. I could honestly give a damn. I will say it like it is and I don't care who doesn't like what I have to say. And I don't use juuken anymore. I only used ladydeathstrike to have a civil conversation with you. I haven't used that account since then either. Lol, lol, and lol. If I'm pissing you off so much then you should be ignoring me. My words are getting to you. :)
Lol @ Kim. No, he's angry about the case concerning the PS2. And still holds a grudge against Sony till this day. Poor child.
that sales would be slightly slanted towards Sony. In the US, the 360 will mostly outdo the PS3 on multiplatform titles, but everywhere else, the 360 and PS3 will be about even, or PS3 selling more. Overall, the PS3 will usually come out on top worldwide, with the 360 follwing behind a bit, but still puting up a good fight.
The fact is that both Xbox360 and Playstation 3 gamers actually buy games for their respective consoles on a regular basis. Sure the Nintendo Wii has sold 40 Million plus units worldwide but sales figures of the overall library of games show that out of those 40 Million there are only about 2 million gamers that actually buy games for there Wi on a semi regular basis at best. Right now there are at least 30 milloin Wii consoles setting unused collecting dust in living rooms all around the world.
The Wii crowd is divided between two sects. Casuals and core gamers. Look at the core nintendo titles, (SMG,LoZ:TP,WiiFit,MarioKart) they totally outsell everything else. (3+ million for each) Casuals buy not only WiiFit, but also Party games etc. Core gamers are traditionally hardcore gamers but have really high standards, and usually buy some M and traditional games. (MadWorld, Zelda, MGS, GoW etc.) HD consoles are divided as well, Fad gamers and Core gamers. Fad gamers just get games based of scores and sales. 3rd parties on nintendo platform fail because the 1st party games are so dominant. And instead of taking risks, devs usually do a cheap cash in and make shovelware. It is really simple. Devs try harder on the HD consoles because they can put out anything and fad gamers will buy it. (Assassins Creed etc.) *just look at the sale trends for each console*
...I thought people only buy bluray movies? How can this be?!
Most of these sales come from Resident Evil: Degeneration -_-
You guys see the guy that wrote this article? Funny thing is that's exactly how I expect a fanboy to look like.
Still, it's weird to see that they believe they will sell more on the console with 6-7 million less system sold and with an attach rate that's ~2.0 lower. Major discrepancy... someone care to explain?
