there is the same Rumor that Nintendo is buying them, but, Capcom is hardly blazing up the Japanese Market.

Heard that a while ago. Looks less likely the the Rare buyout ever did...not that it can't happen.

M$ has only bought 3 major dev houses including Rare. That certainly isn't a lot. Sony and Nintendo do the same thing.

Well if it is true, its amazing news. Would mean lots of nice titles on the way for xbox. Wonder what RE would look like with Xbox power???? mmmmmmm... maybe they could actually improve the gameplay rather than sticking to the old formula and relying on graphics???

I would find it VERY lame, in that it would be another example of MS just taking over an industry when they want it, simply because they have money and not by their own merit. i would think that if any company were to buy out capcom, it would be nintendo, since they are already seemingly very friendly with them.

I personally dont think its bad news... so what if Xbox became the main console? Ok it probably wouldnt be Xbox1... it would be a machine or 2 down the line but it means we all get the same games, every dev making for one console, we all get the same spec. I could only see it being a good thing as it would be so less convoluted and you wouldnt get dodgy ports. Look how the PC market has benefited from M$!

That is one way of looking at it... but it would be one company dominating the CONSOLE HARDWARE market. Not the games market... if M$ buys major shares in big developers and after a certain time, M$ consoles become the consoles of choice then the other big devs will move over to the Xbox'x'. So you will still have the veriety of developers, just limited console producers. Maybe it would be bad.. im gonna need to think about this one for a bit as i really do see many +ve points for this type of move. Lets hear some -ve points!

I don't know what you're thinking of, since Capcom hasn't been exactly putting out any great titles over the past few years.

And how exactly can't they rely on graphics, it would be on the Xbox after all...and all it does is rely on graphics.

Well seeing as microsoft are basically incapable of making good games they look for companies with big name games coming to other formats and buy them out to make it "xbox exclusive".

You're out of you're mind if you think having one console would be good. That would suck so bad. You think prices are bad now? omg they would WAY higher and never change

Also the lack of invation that happens when there is only one is so low yet you will pay full price dispite it's minior improvments

Not to mention were talking MS here who was already considering the idea of using the X-Box and the platform to cross PC stuff into the HomeTheater(Oh dear god no!)

Basicly having one and only one leads to crap and the same crap for a very long time

Yeah but MS is buying all the BIG name guys, Nintendo and Sony bought i guess the small names since i dont know anything about who they bought or what they made that was popular.

Like Bungie was fairly big.
Rare is a huge name.
Capcom i think is even bigger.

Retro Studios is a new name so its small
Silicon Knights, i never heard of them until near the end of the N64's life.

Who did sony buy out?


And if u think one console is a good thign?
LOOK AT THE OS MARKET!!!
LOOK AT THE HOME OFFICE SOFTWARE!!
MS products are the leading and most popular and they are expensive as hell.

800bux CDN just to buy a software suite???
400-500bux CDN to buy a full version of XP Pro?

I don't want to buy an xbox console so why do they keep buying all the compaines. In a Sub-concious way they are saying if you don't buy our console we will buy all the great developers so you will have to buy our console! Kinda like blackmail

well,dont worry, because as he said, its just a stupid Rumor, Xbox fansites tend to get nuts. Capcom just said they expected losses, not that they are going under, if every company that had losses sold to someone else, there would be none left.

Really guys, how else do you expect M$ to become competitive quickly?

I don't particularly like it, but this is the way it goes. Sony and Nintendo had their fair share of company gulping when they've needed to.

Sony bought developers, intellectual property and talent left and right during the PSX years. M$ has been doing (and will likely continue to do) the same.

This is just the way the industry works now. Should have thought about it before you bought your PlayStation's and PlayStation 2's and proved that big corporations could come in with no experience, buy content, and rule the market. We would have been better off with the originals, Atari, Nintendo, and Sega (god bless ).

Ehhh maybe.

EDIT: Actually, we probably owe more respect to Xerox than either Apple or Microsoft. And I was wrong before, both Apple and Microsoft were created at approximately the same time, only to become competitors later. So who's to say what direction history would have taken without either. That would be interesting to look into further, I think...
