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.

111 Comments

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.

No Caption Provided

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.

No big surprise here. There are almost double the PS4's over Xbox One's on the market, I would hope sales would be higher on PS4.

Hey Capcom. How about porting the PC version of DeadRising 3 Super Mega Hyper Edition Plus Alpha to the PS4. It would probably sell pretty well since PS is pushing 3rd parties this holiday. Also what happened to DeepDown? i hear nothing on it and i really wanted to see if they just cancelled the game.

@blackamerica: Maybe, but there's still the issue of way more ps4's out there so it'll always be higher probably. But the ratio of consoles:game sales would probably level out (maybe)

Japanese publisher. Xbox One doesn't sell in Japan. Therefore more units are sold for the Sony systems. Maybe if Japanese gamers get their heads out of their a** and try something different for a change then the sales would level out. "Oh no! We can't let an American company dominate here!!" So they don't buy the Xbox. idiots!

@7tizz: Spent my childhood in Nishinjin. So unless you back up those claims it's only you being racist on a country you are ignorant about.

"Most xenophobic and racist country in the world"

Accurate? No. Just horribly insulting.

And to think I leaned English and Romaji to read racist tar like that. This is a gaming site and your imaginary delusions on non US culture is both insulting and flag-worthy. I know many here born in Japan. I predict more flagging very soon.

"I'm Canadian" never would have guessed. But your ending 'paste' pun is obtuse. You're pro US>>everything filled on this site doesn't give me any reason to believe you, or educate me towards another conclusion.

Have a nice day you very insulting individual.

@TheDirkDiggler: That goes both ways. I have seen many americans bash the PS4 and praise the xbox one just for the simple fact it is an american console and the PS4 isn't.

@stuff238: Maybe a little, but sales of Sony systems here are great, just like the Microsoft systems. I don't see many people refuse to buy a Sony or Nintendo sysyem because they are from Japan. I and most people buy them depending on what games are on them and the features included.

Really, why do people care so much? They are plastic boxes that provide consumers with entertainment.

@action_b4stard: Instead of commenting on my comment, read the article. Capcom shipped 3.75 million units for the Nintendo 3DS compared to Sonys 2.45 and Microsoft's 1.2 totaling 3.65 million. So yea... I know what I said...and you... well I'm sorry.

If PS4 wasnt selling games 2:1 with a sales lead of 2:1, that console would be in more trouble than it already is in. Hold on to this 2:1 memmory. :p
