80% of Capcom games sold digitally, publisher says

Who needs a disc?

A whopping 80% of Capcom games are sold digitally, the publisher has recently confirmed.

The news comes as part of a recent question and answer period inside an annual shareholders’ meeting, the publisher proclaiming its “current digital download sales ratio is approximately 80%”.

Capcom also advised that “while it ultimately depends on how our customers behave going forward, for the time being we are promoting our digital strategy with an objective of 90%, since there are some customers who prefer to own discs.”

GamesIndustry reports that digital sales accounted for 53.3% of Capcom’s sales last year, so that number is even more phenomenal in comparison.

Digital game sales are on the rise across the world — despite a 6% decrease from last year, Australians spent a whopping $2.695 billion USD on games in 2019. Sony has already confirmed a digital-only PS5, while Microsoft is rumoured to do so next month.
