Interesting to see how each 3rd party will tackle the next gen workload and how much "next gen" will actually go into titles especially at this early stage of the new consoles and their user base

Capcom can't seem to get it's money right.

Don't forget the various Street Fighter 4 re-releases & DLC.

Its capcom. These are the same inconsistent moons that almost canceled dead rising 3 when it was a last gen game because it was too expensive.

These are also the guys pumping a new engine as well as a ton of money into a free to play game whixh threatens to have little return on the investment.

This also the same company letting other developers pass them up on gameplay and inmovation. (Injustice, guilty hear xrd, killer instinct) and they're response being a another Street Fighter IV version and saying no street fighter 5 until 2018.

Does anybody think Capcom is gonna turn bankrupt or get bought out in the near future?

I guess the only reason it exists on XBO is thanks to Microsoft's huge money pockets.

Capcom in the last few years has transitioned into outsourced westernized CrapGreedycom. They used to be one of the most amazing developers, my 2nd favorite in fact next to Nintendo....But these days, along with Konami? They've fallen hard......and they deserve to after what they did to Mega man, Ghost 'n Goblins AND resident evil. Greedy, greedy, greedy...

Catering to western Broblasting Call of duty zombie smashing jar heads. I just watched ALL of the RE6 cutscenes online....and it's because i couldn't bare to play the actual game with it's broken controls + camera, kindergarten difficulty, hand holding gameplay and pure emphasis on being a shooter. Nothing revolutionary or exciting happened during the cutscenes anyways. The confrontation between Chris & albert weskers son was the only real high lite!

Actually this article makes me wonder how bloated the budgets for the XboxOne or PS4 games will be. EA and Squeenix will surely answer my question soon

With the similarities of the three main systems and internal engine use and asset sharing they shouldn't go up that much unless they decide to go balls out crazy or are badly managed.

If I was Capcom I'll switch to developing exclusively for the 3DS, that seems to be the only platform they make money on

Lol were all dumb and didn't read the article. It says the costs would go up if they kept working in the limitation of MT Framework and Pants Rehi should sleep xostsbdown and improve workflow.

Best string of Typos ever.

And yes, That Destructoid article clearly missed the point of what he was saying...in a way I can't even comprehend. All he basically said was "our new engine is 8 to 10 times more effecient". This doesn't mean it's impossible for them to make games without spending 8 to 10 times more than necessary...

I think the new engine might even help Capcom in its recovery. I mean from what they say the thing is multipurpose so if it works good enough Capcom might even cut the costs(and so be willing to risk a little more after its situation is better, might even bring Megaman back, or so I hope)
