    You're right, they have; Conkers, Kameo, PDZ and Viva Pinata have all been good games.

    :lol:

    I'll never understand the hate PDZ gets. I played through it, and it's fine. It probably saw the most play on my 360 before I got gow.

    As for Kameo... I have it, but I haven't played more than 5 minutes of it, so I can't judge.

    PDDZ sucks, that's what is wrong with it. It's playable, but... ugh

    "yes it does"

    and so on.

    Microsoft has been trying to buy out big name Japanese companies for years. That's a major reason why Enix bought Square. I'm sure they've tried to buy Capcom many, many times in the past few years.

    I, on the other hand, already have a 360, so this is good news for me, since it'll be one less reason to buy a PS3. If only Sony would fucking sell team Ico.

    I've got to ask though... if you can't afford a 360, you sure as hell can't afford a PS3. So what difference would this make to you one way or the other?

    If this IS true, you can forget about any Capcom Wii games. Gamespot recently quoted Bill Gates as saying Nintendo is the 360's toughest competition.

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/6164053.html

    That won't prevent them for developing for the DS, given all the Microsoft properties that have appeared there.

    ...at least until Microsoft develops plans for a handheld.

    Is Capcom planning anything other than Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles for the Wii? No More Heroes is being developed by Grasshopper and published by Marvelous and Spike (two publishers?), so Capcom involvement whatsoever. I haven't really heard of much else.

    I personally think this would be pretty damn good. If MS bought Capcom though, would any games that cudn't really come out on the 360 anyway (like RE Wii, other Wii games and handheld games) just be cancelled? Or would they let them complete them first, and once all that is out the way, move them on to 360 exclusives with PC ports, and possibly continue on with handheld titles. I mean, as some have said, Rare still makes handheld games, and wouldn't MS still profit from these anyway, owning the company making them and all?

    Anyway, it probably won't happen, hence it being a rumour, but it would be nice if it did happen. No more worrying if Sony has bought exclucivity for RE5 or even Dead Rising 2 for the PS3!

    I approve of a Microsoft Capcom takeover.

    Mainly because Microsoft aren't idiots and would reform Clover in a heartbeat.

    Plus, I already own a 360 so more goodies for me =)

    Not necessarily. I love Clover, but the only game of theirs that really sold decently was Viewtiful Joe. Okami, wonderful as it was, likely lost them a TON of money because sales were poop here AND in Japan (where it should have been a blockbuster). From a business standpoint, it would be stupid to reform Clover, sad to say.

    If anyone other than Clover made them, no one would care. Because they aren't that spectacular.

    I agree it would be a poor business decision to reform Clover. However, even though Clover has been dissolved, it's unlikely that the people who made up the Clover team have been dissolved as well (acid?). So even though we will never likely see another Clover title again :( , we could see a formation of a new studio with similar goals :D , with or without Microsoft.

    You're also kind of missing the point that the actual developers behind Clover left of their own volition before the studio was dissolved - hell, that's why it was dissolved. There wouldn't be much of a point to a Pirates of the Carribean without Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom just like there isn't much of a point to Clover without Inaba or Kamiya.

    This rumor is 10 kinds of retarded.

    Rumor:

    MS to buy Nintendo in 5 years.

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    I don't buy this, mainly because if they have money to buy a developer, there are far better developers to buy than Capcom.

    And for the record, Perfect Dark Zero is a piece of shit. I've seen better AI in board games.

    Would love to see MS buy Capcom. If titles like Dead Rising are what we can expect from a company that only makes games for the 360, sign me up!

    It would also be awesome to see the marketplace be filled with all those 2d fighting games that capcom made like dark stalkers and the marvel vs xmen games (that was capcom right?).

    Kick ass.

    nice avatar, MCP.

    personally, from a 'format wars' perspective, it would do Microsoft a huge bonus to own Capcom, since they're a somewhat popular Japanese developer, and Japan's a market they'd love to crack. As far as i'm aware, Dead Rising is an exclusive, and that's doing quite well.
    However from a games-playing perspective, i guess it shouldn't really matter, as long as there's good games on the 360. This is the console i own, and so the one i want to play games on. I can understand why PS3 owners would feel aggrieved, similarly i would if some good 360 exclusives were lost to a console i didn't own.

    But at the end of the day, it's only a rumour, and a highly unlikely one at that.

    Yes, but what you've said has already happened or could happen even if Capcom isn't bought by MS.

    Personally, I would prefer Capcom able to produce games for whatever platforms it chooses.

    Yeah, because Microsoft sure scrambled to get Free Radical back into Rare. :roll:

    People, the problem isn't with the fact that Microsoft would buy them, but that they would get bought at all. Exclusivity for a company that would otherwise make plenty of games for all systems is nothing but a lose-lose situation for anyone that doesn't have a huge pro-MS bias.

    (Not to mention that a Japanese company going exclusive to Microsoft, which has a much shorter leg to stand on in the Japanese market than the other two console giants, doesn't make any damn sense)

    Edit: Wait, this is EGM? "Street Fighter 4 is coming out this year" EGM? Why the hell are we even paying any attention? :lol:

    I agree, I would prefer Capcom to stay independent and especially not be bought by MS especially since I am a huge Capcom fan and I think it would do more harm than good.
