Capcom Expects Big Year From PS3
Like most major publishers, Capcom plans to support all platforms in the coming year.
But there's one platform that sits atop the list: the PlayStation 3. The company has released its sales expectations for the current fiscal year, and they expect to sell 18 million units across 55 total titles. That's a drop from 20.5 million copies on only 53 titles from the year prior, by the way. Anyway, it seems they have high hopes for their PS3 software, as they're expecting 8 million unit sales across 16 titles for Sony's platform:
-- PS3: 16 titles, 8 million units (11 / 6.2 million)
-- X360: 14 titles, 4.7 million units (11 / 4.2 million)
-- DS/3DS: 9 titles, 2.4 million units (11 / 1.7 million)
-- PSP: 11 titles, 2.2 million units (11 / 6.2 million)
-- PC/Other: 3 titles, 500,000 units (3 / 500,000)
-- Wii: 2 titles, 200,000 units (5 / 1.4 million)
Yes, well, Nintendo desperately needs something new, as the Wii has slipped. Something else to remember: thanks to the new "PSP Remaster" program, and the fact that Capcom's Monster Hunter Portable 3rd is first up for an HD overhaul for the PS3, their projection makes sense. ...that Monster Hunter stuff is crazy popular in Japan.
