5 Things Capcom Should Do To Improve Their Finances

GameDynamo - "It’s no small secret that Capcom has found themselves suffering from their biggest financial loss since 2005. There are a lot of things that contribute to that, and a lot of things that could have been easily prevented. The company is already dialing back on things that they’ve made mistakes on in the past year or so, but there really is more that they could do.

With that said, here is a list of things that Capcom should consider doing in order to get themselves back on track."

Capcom has done a huge amount of mistakes that so far I only have SFF4 & SFxTk. Never heard of a company that most of their devs have left to form other studios, without devs and games, Capcom is nothing but a logo with D-head execs, simple as that.

Go back to exclusivity to PlayStation. No coincidence when RE5 the first multiplatform non timed-exclusive game was when capcom started making mediocre games.

Here's an idea this article completely miss:

Capcom just developed a new game engine that that has shown very impressive graphical capabilities. They could go the Unreal route and sell licenses to use that new engine. They said they developed it because Japan was falling behind compared to the west, they could make money by selling the use of their engine to other game devs all around japan and anyone else in or out of japan that is interested in it.

It's definitely caught a lot of attention and something they should really consider.

Aside from that just make awesome games. They've got Lord of Shadows 2 on its way out and people seem excited. It's been getting positive preview summaries. Just keep up the good work and consumers will start buying again.

Lords of shadow is Konami, not capcom

LOL yeah I screwed up on that but what about the actual suggestion of selling the licenses to use Phanta Rei or however it's spelled?

Do people disasgree with that idea as well or were you all too focused on the lord of shadows mistake?

Capcom is my favorite videogame company but they have made some really bad decision lately.

Capcom betrayed its fans ( DLC at disk) , its beloved characters ( replacing Dante with an emo, cancelling Megaman Legends 3) and its most talented programers (Shinji Mikami, Keiji Inafune, and Hideki Kamiya, three developers who are amazing ), Capcom is a shame like Square, these companies need to fire all the executives.

Making good games isn't going to solve the problem. It's possible for a good game not to be profitable. Remember what SE said about Tomb Raider a while back? They need to make better decision with their games and who they outsource their games to. Not only that but stop sitting on games in their portfolio. I would be put old games on many platforms as possible, if I was them.

Make the games they specialized in and stop trying to be something they've never been, a western developer.
