Very sad to know. They killed Resident Evil they dont deserve to have positive results.

shipped does not equal sold

princejb1342181d ago

if it shipped out their warehouse into retailers that means they sold it
what happens in the retails has nothing to do with them

OooHJohnny2181d ago

We're talking about financial results.

Blankman852181d ago

Yeah cause they donated the games to retailers for free right?

Neckbear2181d ago

But they made Dragon's Dogma, one of the best games this year. I think they do.

Treian2181d ago

shipped is different than sold. silly capcom. don't get cocky.

beerkeg2181d ago

What's the difference? Don't they get paid regardless?

moegooner882181d ago (Edited 2181d ago )

Capcom gets paid for shipped units, so of course they will report sales as shipped, all publishers do.

amaguli2181d ago

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.

Kyosuke_Sanada2181d ago (Edited 2181d ago )

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.

doogiebear2181d ago

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.

Megaton2181d ago

No shame in Bethesda's Fallout games. I hope BioWare goes bankrupt.

ForNgoods2181d ago

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*

caseh2181d ago

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.
