PC Platform Leads Capcom’s Digital Sales By 40%, PSN Follows With 30% & Xbox Live Arcade With 20%

A couple of days ago, Capcom revealed that Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will be coming to Steam. And given Capcom’s recent digital sales report, this seems like a logical decision. According to the Japanese company, the PC platform leads its full game download sales.

As Capcom pointed out, the share of sales – for full games – is about 40% for PC, 30% for the PlayStation Network, 20% for Xbox Live Arcade and 10% for Nintendo platforms.

Do note that these are digital-only numbers, and we do know that digital PC sales are going strong for pretty much all publishers. This also shows that research companies should find more ways to count digital sales and include them in their sales charts (so that they can give a more objective picture of the overall games sales).

Yesterday, we informed you about the incredible sales of the PC gaming hardware. This, accompanied with various earlier reports show that PC gaming is stronger than ever.

With the arrival of DX12 and the new GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA, it will be interesting to see how things will unfold and whether more developers decide to release their games on our platform.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
