Nightly News Roundup

Capcom net sales increase 46.2% from 2010

With the help of such titles as Monster Hunter Freedom 3 and Dead Rising 2, Capcom has managed to increase its net sales to 97,716 million yen. Operating income increased to 14,295 million yen, up 132.6% from last year. The current period, as a result, marks “record net sales, operating income, ordinary income and net income, exceeding estimates”, according to Capcom itself. Among other games, Capcom’s release of Ghost Trick on both Nintendo DS and iOS fared above project sales.

Xbox successor almost ready, watch out Project Cafe

According to a source for Develop Magazine, Microsoft is set to reveal its console at E3 to compete with the steadily hype-gathering Project Cafe from Nintendo. Microsoft, according to the source, has been sending development kits to “an unnamed Electronic Arts studio”, among others; the source, Develop says, is “a senior, trusted, well-placed source” and believes that this console will launch by the end of 2012. This is due to “new data” from March that proclaimed Microsoft was working on the Xbox 360 successor’s early development, as well as signs that Microsoft was looking for new talent for the Xbox Console Architecture Group.

Develop Magazine stated that according to the source, the Xbox successor will “feature enhanced support for Kinect with just a couple of alterations”, and is speculated to be revealed earlier to specifically combat Nintendo’s hype machine.

This may not sound like big news to most people, but– well, in any case, they’re on the Capcom store for $29.95, shipping not included. Check them out.

    Sony will reveil their next console this e3 as well. That what I heard from the voices in my head. If they don’t announce it_ I will soak my head in water for a whole second.

    Okay so I was a year early on my predictions! But I told you the next generation was about to begin!

    If Sony does (or CAN for the matter) reveal the PS4 at E3, I’ll be impressed. The quake, the hacks, the crash, Sony’s really USC right now.
