For developers like Square Enix, EA, or Capcom, deciding which platforms to support for a generation is an important decision. Having games like Final Fantasy, FIFA, or Resident Evil is a crucial part of the catalog of titles players are looking for. For the Dreamcast, losing the support of Electronic Arts was one of the factors that led to its rapid disappearance. In the case of Nintendo, the separation with EA was a severe blow to the shy and weak Wii U. The case of Capcom is more curious since these have found greater success on the PlayStation 4.
Capcom has shared information about its last quarter and this reveals that the PlayStation 4 is the largest console for that company. During this quarter, 4,950,000 copies of his games were physically sold worldwide. Of these, 3,250,000 copies were sold on the PS4, which means that the Sony platform represents 66% of its sales. Second is the Nintendo Switch, in which 1,150,000 units (23%) were sold despite not having Resident Evil 3 Remake. Or Monster Hunter World.
The Xbox One represents only 300,000 units from the last quarter (6%), but this does not mean that Xbox fans have to worry. Although it is a low percentage, the cost of ports is quite low for a company like Capcom. If you think about it, all of the company’s big titles during the current generation came to Xbox, with the exception of Street Fighter V.
