Sony should purchase capcom to be honest, imagine how cool it would be to make a cap com vs playstation characters, or imagine the megaman battle networks coming to the ps vita! Honestly this would would be a great move for sony they should definitely look at this post and think about the opportunity they could have buying capcom,the street fighter series would be way better on playstation then Microsoft just my 2 cents on this I'm sure you guys probably feel different about this

If they do purchase Capcom which is highly unlikely, we could finally be getting a Monster Hunter game.

Well..... Sony's financial situation means that it's not in great shape to take on a company of Capcom's size. Still, with Sony likely moving out of the dedicated handheld hardware space, Capcom's properties and existing mobile structure could be an asset.

You&me both. If Sony acquires just 1 proper Monster Hunter game for the Vita in North America, we will see vita's flying off shelves. Make it happen Sony.

Why?

Capcom hasn't been putting out the best quality games as of late.

Never going to happen, Sony doesn't have the cash for it. Despite good sales with the PS4, they are still bleeding money from pretty much everything else, especially the TVs. And honestly, speaking as a gamer, the only way all gamers could win is if neither Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft buy Capcom~.

I know this isn't the typical Monster Hunter game, but the MMO Monster Hunter Frontier G is coming to PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360, PC, and Vita. I don't know if it will come to PS4 or Xbox One.

It's not that they don't have the cash, they could always get loans. To quote a famous gamer euphamism "it's not worth it". Sony wouldn't just be taking on Capcom, but all their debt and liabilities, too. And Capcom hasn't had a hit in a while other than Resident Evil, and that's not enough to carry them.

 

It makes more sense to purchase an up and coming developer, not a publiser that's struggling.
