Christian Svensson, the Sr. Director of Strategic Planning & Research at Capcom USA had this to say about the resent rumors that MS would buyout Capcom.
"Capcom is in no financial trouble. In fact overall the company is highly profitable (about $58m ish in profit in the last fiscal year alone if you look at our annual report) with a good deal of capital at its disposal.
Other than that, Capcom does not comment on rumors and speculation of this nature."
So everyone calm down about the buyout, because at this point, they are in perfect condition especially with Dead Rising, and Lost Planet.
