Capcom is predicting that Street Fighter 5 will sell 2 million copies across the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the title, for this fiscal year.


Recent reports put the PlayStation 4 install base at 35 million globally, and Steam has over 125 million active users. Nintendo's Wii U is over 10 million sold, and Microsoft has stopped sharing sales numbers for the Xbox One, but they recently said the PS4 has a huge lead.

To put these numbers in a bit more context, we wanted to look back at past Capcom fighting games to see how they performed on the market.
