I’m filing this under the category of highly unlikely, but Evil Avatar is [url=http://www.evilavatar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23730]reporting[/url] they have a nice chunk of sources that are confirming this. Both of my Capcom contacts are out of the office, but I doubt that changes their response until a big announcement is made.
That being said, what if Microsoft [i]DID[/i] buy Capcom? Would their presence in the Japanese market shift? Just what would happen to the scene of the gaming industry if Microsoft snared another huge 3rd party studio like this?
If we get any type of official confirmation on this, I’ll be sure to let you guys know.
