PS4 Beats Xbox One in Capcom Sales Charts

Capcom sells more than double the number of PS4 games as Xbox One titles during the last quarter.

As part of Capcom's latest earnings report on Thursday, which was rosy overall, the Japanese publisher also released a slide that offers a breakdown of games shipped by platform.

As you can see, the Nintendo 3DS, with more than 3.75 million units shipped, was Capcom's top platform during the three-month period. This is likely attributable to the top-selling Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

As for home consoles, the PlayStation 4 led the way with 2.45 million copies shipped. This is more than double the 1.2 million Xbox One units shipped during the period.

Another interesting takeaway is that digital games are an increasingly big business for Capcom. Full-game downloads made up the majority of Capcom game sales during the quarter, accounting for 5 million of 8 million total sales. A sign of the times, it seems.

Take a look at the chart below for more.

PS4 beats Xbone on all accounts, not just Capcom. We all know PS4 is the new PS2 era. Let's move on people and Gamespot.....stop with these damned clickbait fanboy articles. You are desperate for click revenue and are genuinely lacking good news articles lately. Keep it up and Gamespot will become a barren desert if not already.

@berserker66666: They might not be so desperate if they hadn't killed the comments section.

@suicidesn0wman: Killed it? They took its eyes out, soaked it in tar, set it aflame and finally when it was begging for mercy, shot it in the head. The comment section is absolutely one of THE worst of all the video gaming sites out there. Even IGN has waaay better comment section now.

@berserker66666: You know whats funny, the old comment system was Livefyre, and guess what IGN uses? If only IGN's content wasn't trash, 90% tv shows 5% comics and 2 or 3 articles about gaming per day.

@suicidesn0wman: LOL. Yea I saw that on IGN. Also......if only.......thinking about switching to Gametrailers. They're better than Gamespot AND IGN from what I've seen.

Makes sense that you publish twice as many titles on a platform its going to sell twice as many copies.

@suicidesn0wman: Is that really what this is saying? I'm not that familiar with Capcom's game releases, but I thought most of what they've released on current gen (XBO and PS4) was multi-plat. What games did Capcom release on PS4 that's not available on XBO?

It seems to me that they released the same games on both platforms, and the PS4 has outsold them 2:1; which would make sense because the PS4 has outsold the XBO about 2:1. That being the case, this seems like a "whoop-dee-doo, no sh!t Sherlock" kind of article.

So, what exclusives are there on PS4? That's really your contention. Correct?

@otterbee: You could always look at the graphic which is fairly easy to read. It says they released 13 games on PS3/4 in 2015, and 7 on 360/X1. 13 PS3/4 games should easily outsell 7 X360/X1 games.
