    Capcom today released its sale results for the first fiscal quarter in 2011 that ended June 30.

    The company reported net sales of 11,953 billion yen, a 37 percent drop from the 19,037 billion yen it reported in the first quarter last year. Capcom did see an increase in profit for the quarter, reporting 338 million yen, a 58 percent increase from the same quarter last year.

    During this time, the company shipped Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D - which moved 400,000 units worldwide - Super Street Fighter ? Arcade Edition - 300,000 units - and Monster Hunter Freedom 3 in Japan - 100,000 units.[/p]

    Bring Megaman back.

    Don't fuck up Monster Hunter.

    Don't fuck up Revelations (they ARE doing Revelations, right?) and release it this year.

    Make new Monster Hunter. Release for both Vita and 3DS.


    I just saved Capcom's ass.

    That dumb decision with the Mercenaries 3DS one save issue couldn't have done them any favours. I agree that Megaman needs to come back. I've been playing the Megaman X Collection on my PS2 (was never released in the UK but since when did that stop pirates? [​IMG]) and they're some of the best 2D action games I've ever played. Saving up the lives I need to get the Hadouken in the original game [​IMG] Release a new Megaman X game on the 3DS and you can just take my money.

    Good luck finding said money, I've not seen it for a whilee [​IMG]

    IT'S BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T BRING MH3P OVER.

    All of it. Well that and MML3. But mostly no localization of MH3P.
    Everyone I know with a PSP plays that game with a translation patch.
    They would make excellent money by localizing it.
    It's so good ;-;

    It's karma for not localizing AAI2

    This.

    Plus, they'd make a crapload more money if they brought MH3P over but they'd make an even larger crapload if they brought Monster Hunter Frontier over, we want that game.

    Seriously, there is a boss in that game where you can take 16 people into the quest with you and have 80 lives altogether...DO WANT!

    sony also have reported a quarterly loss of 191mn.
    its not only karma but also what they did through out the year.

    probably their quality in games is decreasing rather than fan hate.

    Un-cancel megaman legends 3, make a monster hunter game for 3ds and for the love of god localize it

    I believe that would fix things but what do i know about what consumers want.....

    That means it really sucks to be them now.

    It seems the game company as a whole is having a hard time.

    Sony is still in recovery and I don't think Nintendo fell either.

    Microsoft ... well, is still trying to push Kinect. [​IMG]

    More like Nintendo and Capcom, and just them.

    The people at Microsoft and Sony are probably laughing their asses off. Especially Sony.

    To see the big king of gaming fall so easily.

    ^ wtf... why is the post above quoted in the PREVIOUS post? XD

    anyways, Capcom, baby, be a darling and bring the Monster Hunter love over to the 3DS. people will throw you money if you do that, especially now that the 3DS is rock-bottom cheap.
