@Deathgaze People have actually no idea how big japan is here in japan, they even publish and localize GTA, to give an example...

And outside of making and publishing games, they have so many ways of income, including capcom themed bars, theme parks, movie licensing deals... hell, they could live off of Monster Hunter merchandising alone.

@KingMike clearly they can afford it, if they spend it... seriously I couldn't care less about capcom, like any other gaming company... I'm here because I'm a nintendo fan actually, but I just play games I like regardless of the company... but reading all these comments about capcom being broke it's kinda frustrating... you guys have no idea what you are talking about... evidently they know how to run a 1 billion dollar business if they came to this point so far... you guys in the west have a weird misconception about capcom being broke... here in Japan it's one of the top gaming companies...

@TheRealThanos That 152 million in the bank thing is so annoying. You kids repeat it over and over but it means nothing... Capcom is far off being broke and it's actually one of the few who are still making tons of money in the gaming industry in Japan

150 million "dollars in the bank" is pretty standard for Capcom, they were able to live with those and even with lower numbers for decades. Money in the bank is basically IDLE MONEY, it is a much smarter business to invest most of your funds instead of sitting on them doing nothing.
If you want hard numbers, here they are. Total amount of money in the bank:

Year 2003 - 14,894 millions of yen
Year 2004 - 16,957 millions of yen
Year 2005 - 12,948 millions of yen
Year 2006 - 678 millions of yen
Year 2007 - 9,200 millions of yen
Year 2008 - 13,061 millions of yen
Year 2009 - 7,378 millions of yen
Year 2010 - 12,299 millions of yen
Year 2011 - 27,655 millions of yen
Year 2012 - 11,348 millions of yen
Year 2013 - 14,327 millions of yen (152,415 millions of dollars).

From Capcom's Annual report, pages 7 and 8.
150 million dollars is more than Capcom usually have in the bank, which, remember, means nothing.
