Isn't Sony itself going down the tubes?


This is hilarious because last I checked, PS4 is dominating so far.

Without TVs you wouldn't be able to play your 360 or XBox1.


Not the video game market, the companies in general.

And this doesn't even really have to do with bankruptcy. In fact, they could just renew their takeover defense next year.

Recognizing that the last discussion on this took up too much time and energy and devolved into a name calling game- I decided to just go right to an expert and reached out to a Wall Street Analyst for Video Games that I am acquainted with. I asked him for his assessment. These are completely neutral experts who measure, monitor, analyze and recommend based on the 'whole' picture of the market that FL and I keep pushing people to view. Look at the facts objectively, remove your disdain and the term 'moral bankrupty' from this analysis- this is not about 'personal feelings' - this is about cold, hard business facts:


- Corporate governance (i.e. takeover defenses etc.) is a completely different topic vs. financial / business condition
- All this vote did was simply remove one condition for a take-over; i.e. many more conditions would still remain
- Take-overs are not easy and in this instance assuming another party made a bid it would still be:
o Subject to a shareholder vote; shareholders who would likely be seeking a premium to current price and a well-capitalized buyer
o Company has a $800mm enterprise value, meaning a bid would probably need to come in north of that as the company is NOT distressed financially in any mean

- Capcom is well capitalized with low leverage (vs many other publicly traded video game entities) and a net cash position i.e. more cash ($292mm) vs. debt ($78mm)
- Company has also indicated it would do a large sharebuy back which could drive price higher i.e. make it more expensive
- Currently heavily reliant on Monster Hunter titles, it has a stable Pachi-slot business and there is upside if they can deliver native apps (something many other browser games are struggling with)
- They still have solid existing brand IP in Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Devil May Cry
- It is a transition point for the company and they have enough capital and infrastructure to see through it if given a successful plan.

Overall Analysis: 7/10 (numerics refer to general business health, market share, brand recognition, asset flow, IP worth, market position, etc)

Again, I can't overstate this is coming from a neutral source whose very work is to spend hours each day is pouring, analyzing and receiving data to make assessments and recommendations for the video game industry. Though I know many of you don't like to acknowledge that Video Games are a business, they are. Whether or not they should or shouldn't be- that is the reality. The above aren't opinions subject to debate- these are the facts.

I post this not to try to 'win' any argument, but rather to help inform opinions- be armed with facts and figures and use those to support your opinions, not the other way around.

Not acknowledging and not caring are two different things.

Yes- I'm aware of the difference between willful ignorance and apathy.

Despite that, this is the kind of post that puts idiots in their place.

Well done.
