the article itself seems to doubt the reality that MS is going to purchase Capcom and is doing anything but looking. although MS has a habit of gobbling up gaming companies. but if Capcom is really that unprofitable, i question how smart of a move buying Capcom would be. what was the last good game they produced. Marvel vs Capcom 2 is now just finally being released for home systems

as if Capcom has released anything good lately, just rehashes of old Resident Evil games. MS has actually published some good PC games as well

The remake of Resident evil for the GC went down pretty well. The main problem is microsoft are seeming to want complete control over the console industry, which would be very bad. If they swallow up more games companys there will be less games coming out for other platforms.

Capcom was complaining that it didn't sell well enough last i heard. i didn't say the game was bad per se, but the idea screams cash cow either way.

Well, RE is not just a rehash, its suposed to have 70% new stuff(I'v not played the game. Dont like that kind of games). Even if it is, how many years ago was the PSX version released?
And they are making new games.

There are rumors that MS tried, and still is tryng to buy Square, Sega...ect. They already got Bungie and Rare
Now i'v read that MGS is going to be XBox exclusive
I woudnd be surprised if billy trys to buy Nintendo

Things dont look very good IMO.

and theres me 7 years ago thinking sony would ruin the industry :-/ meh...i assume microsoft will push capcom/rare/other accusition here to produce sequels that sell in big numbers

rare and especially capcom are not fans of stiffling origionality(with capcom making an exception only rescentley), so surley their developers would leave...

Hold the phone!

Capcom isn't going ANYWHERE. Mark my words! They've have been through much WORSE than this and if it were not for their real estate holdings, they'd have posted a profit of about 70 Billion yen. Their games are fine, the company is fine...they can make money but right now, just need to trim some serious real estate fat and downsize.

I hate to put it in this fashion, but do you honestly think that if Capcom went on the selling block, they'd sell out to Microsoft - a company they probably refer to as "gaijin"?!?

Japanese folks have a high emotional stake in honor and intregrity than money and when it comes to investing and selling, they are very cautious. To them, selling out to an American company would probably be dishonorable, especially in light of facts that Microsoft is still struggling to gain a considerable installed base in Japan and historically, American gaming companies hasn't really proven a true sense of success to the Japanese. The last time an American gaming company ruled the roost was back in the late 70s/early 80s and that American company was Atari, which now is nothing more than a publishing moniker for Inforgrames.

Apparently the news of MS snagging Rare has us chomping at the bit.

We need to relax.
