Capcom expects big PS3 sales this year

Capcom sent out a new chart today, containing information about the number of games it shipped for various platforms in the past, and -- more interestingly -- the number of games it plans to ship in the next fiscal year (through March 2012), along with estimated shipment numbers. The company has massive confidence in its 16-title PS3 lineup, expecting to ship 8 million units of those games.

Capcom's Xbox 360 lineup, on the other hand, is 14 games strong and only projected to ship 4.7 million copies. And now we'll skip a few sentences of hypotheses and just say that of course the difference is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD.

The chart also shares the sad news that Capcom does not plan to ship any new GameCube titles in the next year.
