Capcom Has Big Sales Goals On PlayStation 3 This Year

Posted by at 8:32 am on May 24, 2011

The Japanese publisher released information to its investors yesterday regarding its forecast for the current fiscal year, boasting over the 16 games planned for release on Sony’s console. Capcom estimates that the PlayStation 3 will account for 44 percent of the company’s sales between now and March 31 of next year, whereas the Xbox 360 only 26 percent.

Their projected sales number? 8 million units, all of their releases combined, just for the PlayStation 3. Capcom has a pretty healthy confirmed roster of games coming up this year, but it includes a fair number of ports and remakes, as well as yet another iteration upon a two-year old fighting game.

Survival horror fans will be pleased to see both Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 4 releasing in high-definition for both consoles, as well as Operation: Raccoon City, which offers a significant new spin on the franchise. There is also Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD releasing as a part of Sony’s PSP Remaster initiative, and Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. There are also a handful of games lacking release dates, all of which could very well see store shelves by the conclusion of this timeframe, including the Devil May Cry reboot, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, and more.

Capcom mentions in its report to investors that they expect a sharp decline in PSP sales over the fiscal year — they expect to sell only 2.2 million copies for the platform versus 6.2 million in 2010, despite that they are planning the same number of releases.

As safe as Capcom seems to be playing it with all the remakes and rehashes, their projected figures may not be too far off the mark, but we’ll see come March 31, 2012
