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!!!
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...
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?
A licensed version of Mugen "Capcom Vs Everything" with the professional tweak and paint job. ^_-
I hope it's a Monster Hunter MMO, Street Fighter IV WHICH WILL BE 2D and Hi Res with animations that make 2nd Impact look like Karate Champ, and the third one can be a toss up.
I hope that it is a new Marvel VS Capcom game. Plus a new Power Stone game with online play. As for the last one may be a game that has not been seen in some time. May be Phoenix Wright will come out on a home Console. May be a new Dino Crisis. There are a lot of games Capcom could bring out. So I can't wait to see what they will show.
There already is a Monster Hunter MMO for the PC. My friend was in the beta. He tried getting me in but the beta wouldnt accept american IPs. it was Japanese only.
BTW anyone that remembers the launch of the ps2, knows that there already was a 3D street fighter, that pretty much sealed the deal that there wouldn't be another... at least to this point.
1 - Dead Rising announced for the PC.
2 - DMC4 release date and demo's announced for XBL/PSN
3 - Dead Rising 2 announced for Xbox 360
I would substitute #3 with a possible Lost Planet MMO for 360/PC/PS3.
I really think MS is going to work hard on keeping a DR or LP sequel only on the 360.
Here is what they will probably be
-Sequel to Dead Rising or Lost Planet
-Release date for RE5 or DMC4
-Some new game based on a old Capcom IP
1. Previous 360 games and their sequels on PS3
2. A new Onimusha game PS3 exclusive
3. A new Wii Megaman game
I don't think any of those are long shots at all.
1. DMC release date
2. Dead Rising 2 announced
3. Either Umbrella Chronicles details or Viewtuful Joe sequel (doubtful)
the last ones are just complete guesses but i feel confident in the other two
1. DMC4 release date
2.new info on DMC PSP
3. Lost planet 2 and drad rising 2 360 Exclusive
3. A new Onimusha game PS3 exclusive
4. Monster Hunter 3 New info and Stays PS3 Exclusive
5. Breath of fire Wii
Funny how children think about MS buying Capcom.
Why is everyone going so nuts about a 3D Strret Fighter. I still only play the 1992 SF2T game, as it kind of peaked there. I wouldn't mind seeing the series try new areas.
-Bionic Commando 360/PS3 (I've been wanting a new BC title forever now)
-Ghouls n Ghosts- New 2.5D side scroller for 360/PS3 *drool*
-Strider 3- 360/PS3
-Strider game for wii with the mote used for the Falchion
-New Capcom 2D fighter with all new sprites featuring Capcom characters from all different genres/games throughout Capcom's many years
-Onimusha PS3-Ninja Gaiden ripped Onimusha off so badly that Tecmo should have to pay Capcom royalties. A new Onimusha game would rock, and I'd want it to remain on Playstation, just to see how far Capcom could push the hardware.
What we'll most likely get...
Dead Rising 2 *yawn* very predictable and the first game had issues.
Lost Planet 2- Multi plat..predictable
Marvel vs Capcom 2 XBLA/PSN
This Wednesday? or Wednesday of next year?
Dead Rising 2 and Lost Planet 2 announced for multiplatform because if they were exclusive, I am sure that Microsoft would have had them at their pre-Tgs conference.
i'm as sure as cancer suddenly appearing in some poor unfortunate person some where in the world. thats been talk about about from the get go of the PS3 announcemnet back at e3 2005. this is cemented for certainb. as for the next 2 we can speculate about 2 games possible going Multiplatform, which are greatly coveted by PS3 owners LP and DR... well maybe JUst LP for me because i couldn't stand DR. or maybe DR2 and LP2 are anounce and are Multiplatform or maybe they announce onimusha 5 will be PS3 exclusive . by some miralce Sony payed for both of those games. either way MH3 will be seen for sure. i cant wait for TGS. io wanna see if Tecmo has anything instored for Sony in 2008... or anything down the line for that matter beyond Sigma. it will be interesting for certain.
