While speaking to Nikkei, Capcom’s COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has stated that the company is planning to “mainly focus on PC software” in the future.
“PC is driving global sales… We have recently stated that we will make the PC our main platform. At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, we focused on exhibiting the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, and I think people will be able to experience the change in our approach.
“The pandemic is changing the way people look at PCs. Smartphones are convenient, but their screens are small, and their touch panels are difficult to operate, so they are not suitable for home working or school classes. I think PCs will be the next big thing after smartphones.
“We will expand our business for dedicated game consoles, which has been the mainstream up to now, but PC will be the mainstream in the future… Next year or the year after, we want to equalize the ratio of sales to PCs and dedicated consoles.”Nikkei
PC gaming has always been a bit of a draw personally, because I love POWER, and because I’m a BALLER now.
When I was younger and on a budget, having the best gaming PC was what I aspired to. However, now that I’m an adult and can afford a gaming PC, I just don’t want the hassle. I want to sit on my couch with minimal setup. I get that PCs are more convenient now compared to twenty years ago, but I just don’t care, as I’m just that lazy.
