Capcom saw a recovery of the home console market thanks to the solid performance of PS4 and Nintendo Switch during the first half of the fiscal year.
“Of course, this statement is influenced by the situation in Japan, which remains one of Capcom’s biggest markets, but it’s certainly nice to hear a local publisher mention that consoles are recovering over mobile games.“ While both PS4 & NS are doing great in Japan, two points have to be made. - The PS4 isn’t selling that much better in Japan than PS3. It looks to have about the same level of success in the same timeframe. http://www.vgchartz.com/art... - Reports have shown Japanese gamers use the Switch more as a portable than a home console.
The statement is influenced by Japan, it's not only about Japan.
Guess you can say Sony is penetrating the competition! I'm sorry.
1 could say Ps4 and switch are taking turns penetrating the xbone lol
Sony and Nintendo have been killing it this year
They deserve their legendary success. All they truly care about is delivering the very best video games constantly. Why they dominate should be no surprise.
Sony+ Ninty = Revitalization gaming
Ps4 resulted in greater penetration in my home console market. Actually, forget the market and the console.
Hehe lol at the title
capcom needs to stop letting b and c level dev teams ruin their franchises.
Capcom, can Switch and PS4 get a Viewtiful Joe collection please? The graphics STILL look good, all they need is HD. :)
Nintendo and Sony bring us the best games, simple as that really.
Yes, the PS4 and Switch have helped consoles make a big comeback. I hope the X-Box One X does well.
Watch out, move to the side (e)Xbox. Sony and Nintendo both had a great 2017. But more so Nintendo than Sony. Sony released some great games, however, titles like Neir, Hellblade and Nioh did not set the community ablaze. Aside from the great Horizon Zero Dawn, it's been a lot of trailers and hype for things to come like The Last of Us 2, God of War, Spider Man, Shadow Of the Colossus, Days Gone, Detroit and the new Sucker Punch trailer. Greatness still awaits it seems. Nintendo on the other hand have left the competition on their mid step mid gen business and kicked the 9th gen into gear. Not with a HD/UHD "me too" box but with a innovative console that blurs the lines between what a portable and home console can be. It's been a huge sales success and has yet to have it's first holiday season. And it's on track to completely outsell their previous gen offering, the wii u within it's first year! Sure like Neir or Nioh, Nintendo had some games like ARMS that were fun, sold well and didn't set the community ablaze. But Splatoon 2 is a big hit in Japan and there are some fervent fans abroad too. They brought back Metroid in a big way for what may be the 3DS's swan song. All the while refreshing it with the new 2DS XL. New 3rd party relationships are brewing with the likes of Bethesda and Rockstar bringing games to switch. Confidence is in bloom with the new Wolfenstein 2 coming to switch. Creative juices are flowing with Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. And of course, it DOES have the games that has the community buzzing, and not 1 but 2. Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild are true genre defining masterclasses of game design. Nintendo right now, as a game developer, console maker and publisher are firing on all cylinders. They're playing to their nostalgic strengths with nes and snes classics but are also looking forward at reinvention and a promising future in their IPs most recent incarnations. Their games are a breath of fresh air in a other wise dark, gritty, and micro transaction laden landscape.
Wow this was beautiful. I completely agree your statement here. Especially the part about Sony's upcoming exclusive games. Those are the games I really want to play. And yes Nintendo also did ignite something within the gaming industry with the Switch. Definitely turning some gears that haven't been in motion for a very long time. Last gen I only had the Wii U and missed out on a lot. But this time I decided to say f'it and just took the plunge & boiught the hardware from the two major Japanese game giants. I do not regret it at all. While 2017 was pretty good, I know 2018 will just be damn excellent for gaming.
