Capcom Label PS3 Sales "Sluggish"

In a belated translation of Capcom's Q&A following the company's latest financials, the Japanese publisher labelled PlayStation3 sales as "sluggish" and in a double-pronged attack claimed the "PSP hasn't achieved the numbers expected."

Perhaps a reminder of why the Japanese publisher has adopted a multi-format development policy regarding titles such as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, it's worth noting that Capcom have created one of the most successful titles to appear on the PSP in the shape of the Monster Hunter series.

I wonder what Capcom thinks of the 360 sales. 'Disastrous' is a fitting word.

... actually, I wonder what Microsoft makes of the 360 sales. 'Bad Business' are the fitting words.

Any Links? Proof? I think that if you posted links it will actually indicate the opposite of your statement.
I also just read your bio, it totally contradicts your behaviour on this site.
PS You actually Want to play Dead or Alive Extreme 2 and Rumble Roses? I wonder why? ;)

Kingofps3 bio: "I have NO grudge against any gamers gaming on any platform of their choice."

Yeah right.

Anyway, while I can't speak for the USA, the PS3 is outselling the Xbox 360 in Japan and Europe, and possibly in Australia, I'm not very sure. So, I can only imagine that, unless of course the PS3 is getting slaughtered by the Xbox 360 in the USA, the PS3 sales are currently on par, if not better, than the sales of the Xbox 360 on a worldwide scale.

in next gen platform( even in japan 360 3.5 while BS3 1.5) +has the biggest instal base worlwide=360 software sales far much better the BS3

the attache rate from last week figures not december
look at the comment in this link where we already did the calculation to find out the attach

( even in japan 360 3.5 while BS3 1.5)
in japan if BS3 has twice 360 instal base ,360 still will sell more software overall becuse it attach rate is more than twice of BS3...heheheeeeeeeee
i think the reason BS3 attach rate is so low is becuse more people use it as grilling mechaine rather than toaster ..

@below the attaCH rate feom last week look at source and the date+ E3 07 Peter Moore revaled 360 attaCH RATE worldwide> WII+BS3 attach rate world wide combained ...FACT...
where is ur source ?...YOU THINK... i do not care about what you think.

hazeblaze5724d ago

Your attach rates are from Dec or 2006! Sales have been declining for the 360 for the past year while sales for the PS3 have increased globally over the last 2-3 mths. They've increased dramatically in the US over the last 3 weeks. But the US is the only place that the 360 was beating the PS3... and for this month at least, the PS3 is even beating the 360 here in the US!

Even if the PS3 sales hadn't been picking up everywhere else... I think #1's post is simply that the 360 sales are in a slump. I think they would see increased sales also if they drop the price... but with all of the losses from their gaming department, they can't afford to do so soon AND even if they do drop it for the holiday... I doubt it will be as drastic as another Sony price drop.

Ps3 sales sluggish when they are pretty much selling the same as the 360 in the same time frame. It would also help if they actually tossed ps3 owners some games such as lost plant and dead rising instead of giving away exclusives like RE and DMC. But oh well companies like capcom that always have something negative to say about the ps3 and never anything positive we will see where there will be at in 2yrs time. Ps3 does need a breakthrough game not a game that is using 30% power a game that uses at least 70% to show what the game is really capable of and to shut devs up once and for all

iceice1235724d ago

You mean to say developers wish to make money for producing games? My god, this is unheard of!

PS-Wii-605724d ago (Edited 5724d ago )

since the headline is misleading!
Capcom is labelling ps3 SALES as sluggish, not the system itself as the title infers =/

Skillet_1355724d ago

My bad, It wasn't purposely posted that way.

Lightning Mr Bubbles5724d ago

This article doesn't mean anything. Is it giving us news or is it trying to rub something in? You decide.

I personally am shocked by this news, I didn't know this. PS3 was off to the slow start? I had no idea, thanks for informing me. What a shocker. What I didn't know before, I know now.
