At the recent Activate Asia 2007 conference, Capcom informed Gameplayer to keep their eyes glued to Wednesday the 19th at the Tokyo Game Show. They have three huge announcements in the pipeline...
I bet all their games are now being published by M$. That will be the announcment....or that all the games are going to be 360 exclusives.... EDIT: I hope all of my "disagrees" are right because i'm not buying a 360 to play Capcom games....I want them on my PS3 :]
I very highly doubt that this news has anything to do with Microsoft or anything to do with exclusives. For one, no news concerning Microsoft would be big news, or even good news, in Japan. And number two, Capcom made it pretty clear earlier in the year that they do not intend to focus on exclusives any time in the near future.
Capcom bought by Microsoft... That's why games like Dead Rising and Lost Planet are MS exclusives, not on PS3. And former PS exclusives like DMC4 are coming to the 360. Would be pretty much fun, DMC4 suddenly 360 exclusive EDIT to the guy below Pretty strange, last I was on was about 10 to 11 hours ago. And lately I don't react that much. I bet you're too often and too much here and your vision gets blurred.
don't you ever sleep? i see u on here ever second of the day. :p
Isn't Dead Rising 2 going to be on both consoles? Thought I heard that somewhere awhile ago... Capcom has all but completely abandoned exclusivity.
Sorry, Mart. I'm not with you on this one. However, it is a possibility.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure Capcom has no intention in selling games in Japan ever again, or any where outside of the US. Them and Microsoft would be a great fit. Actually that would be incredibly stupid. Maybe Dead Rising was not on the PS3 because there was no PS3 out on the market yet? Crazy theory, isn't it?
i doubt that so much. capcom wouldnt let microsoft or sony or even nintendo buy them.
This will obviously be a pre-show press release.
I am hopeing they give a DMC 4 release date.. and maybe if we are lucky enough playable demo on Live/ps network. Also a release date for RE 5 would be sweet :D. And a brand new game announcement.
MS will buy Capcom to gain a foot hold on japan. MS needs to find a way to get into japan. Xbox360 blows balls in japan, like gameboy micro over here in north America.
M$, may have the money...but not the clout to officially 'buy' capcom. It's not going to happen. It seems to me like they 'bought' capcom a while ago.
Whats all this with MS 'buying' companies? Has MS ever bought a Japanese company? When ever news like this occurs MS fanboys always assume its got something to do with MS buying a company and they have always been proved wrong. Is MGS4 coming to 360...NO Is FF13....NO. MS fanboys should get a life.
I doubt MS is going to Buy Capcom. It just doesn't happen with bigger more established studios (apart from Rare of course but then, what had they done since the days of the N64 before MS got hold of them). I think this is more likely to be the official announcement of Dead Rising and Lost Planet going multi, a release date for DMC and maybe a new 360 exclusive title. Still if MS were to buy Capcom it would certinaly help them in the East. Seriously doubt it is going to happen though.
if Dead Rising and Lost Planet came to the PS3, I doubt they will though. I could see the sequels being announced multiplatform but as for those two titles I doubt it. The only other strange thing I could see is DMC4 going exclusive again but that would be a huge long shot now.
To the guy below my initial comment, just to clarify when I mentioned Dead Rising and Lost Planet I meant the franchises/future sequels not the current games. You made me realise my comment was unclear :)
Marvel vs. SNK vs. Capcom vs. EveryOtherGameFranchiseEver please...with online play...
Capcom hates sony enough to jump on the GameCube bandwagon exclusively .. cos of that, they where careful with RE5 .. but now they got "anyone" to jump ship in a way more safe way.
Capcom hated Sony so much that they released about 50 games on the ps2 including RE4. Thats some extreme hate there. What are you smoking?
MS bought Capcom - and RE5 will not be released. That makes sense. More likely it's all game announcements. Possible new games, or possible announcement of a game becoming multi-platformed.
Well, if we're going to speculate... Monster Hunter MMO A 3D update of an old franchise such as Mega Man or Bionic Commando (would work well with SIXAXIS or Wiimote) A 'true' 3D Street Fighter. (And if we're lucky, maybe a new Clock Tower)
Are we pulling stuff from our asses here ? Well let me jump on this fun bandwagon. I think Sony is buying Capcom, so that DR2, DMC4 and RE5 are PS3 sony. Along with that they're buying Square too, I mean what the hell.
haha i like that. actually all capcom games will be exclusive to the Nintendo DS and they're changing their name to Campkong :-D
Capcom has decided to replace all the main characters in their games with Mega Man
I'll try to make mine actual guess ;D Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 for XBLA and PSN [HD + Online] Next-gen Megaman Game New Project for [.....]
Capcom will release both Dead Rising and Lost Planet on ps3.Street Fighter will have a new game probly a side scroller bash fiesta or maybe 3D if were lucky lol! and I heard or a Bionic Commando was in the works so hopefully it is.HOPEFULLY SOON!!!
3 announcements: 1- dead rising multi plat 2-LP multi plat 3-new exclusive game for ps3
1. Release date for DMC4 2. Demo on some platform, leaning towards Live cause multi-platform demos appear there first 3. Release date for SSF2THDR (Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix)
1. DMC will be out this year (in japan) 2. Okami coming to wii 3. Dead Rising 2
A 3d streetfighter??? are you insane??? i hope they NEVER make a 3d streetfighter.... 2d is where it belongs! wow i hate when people want 3d versions of 2d fighters, why? i love soulcaliber and tekken but leave streetfighter the way it is... (ok mortal kombat armagedden was very good... ) listen anyway 2d fighters are WAY better than 3d ones anyway... wishlist... Streetfighter alpha 4 HD! STreetfighter 4 HD CAPCOM vs. GAME
Deep breath's dude!! I was only kidding about a 3D Street Fighter game!! :) However as long as they keep doing the 2D stuff I don't a problem with a 3D version as long as the female characters have big bouncy bewbs!!!! /joking
I hope its a new true street fighter game not any spinoff but a street fighter 4, new mega man legends game, DM4 this year. Dead rising and lost planet to ps3.
There is no Resident Evil for PSP or Viewtiful Joe next gen. I reckon its not bad to suggest either of those?
