According to Japanese analyst firm NikkoCitiGroup, Capcom's success with Dead Rising has not only been a surprise, but also a signal of potential PlayStation 3 exclusive Capcom titles migrating to the 360 and PC. The firm says Capcom shipped 320,000 copies of Dead Rising in the first week and has forecasted shipments to reach 450,000 units by today.
NikkoCitiGroup analyst Soichiro Fukuda says because of the "healthy sales" of 360 titles, Capcom could take franchises like Devil May Cry and Monster Hunter away from PS3 exclusivity and into multi-platform availability. As 360 hardware and software numbers rise, what's going to stop publishers from letting go of exclusivity with the PS3?
