Published an interesting chart showing the sales of Capcom divided by the different platforms. As you can see, the vast majority of the copies sold (we speak of physical copies) of its games in the last fiscal year, as many as 66% (you have to consider the carryovers), are of titles for PS4. Only 6% are sales on Xbox One, while 23% are on Nintendo Switch. The remaining 5% is divided among all other platforms, in particular the PC.
Capcom’s data are among the few of the big publishers to have been exploded in this way, so as to give a more precise picture of the strength of the various platforms on the market. Of course we have to consider that we are talking about a Japanese publisher, so it’s normal for you to put more strain on PC and on a console with a US soul like Xbox One. However it is undeniable that there is an immense gap between the different platforms. Who knows if Xbox Series X will be able to fill it, at least in part.
For the rest we remind you that in recent years Capcom has launched very popular titles such as Monster Hunter: World, Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 and 3 and others.
