Capcom is still better than Platinum. Street fighter 4, Dead Rising, Dragons Dogma, Marvel vs Capcom 3, and yes, Resident Evil 5 & 6 are all better than anything Platinum has pooped out during its existence.
You do realize that a lot of developers for Platinum are actually former Capcom developers right?

I wouldn’t quite say redefined the genre, I really love this company and Bayonetta is artistically very fresh (moving to jazz, female lead using hair as a weapon etc etc), but imo the last game to really redefine the genre was the first Devil May Cry
The Platinum guys made DMC.
Uh...one of the Platinum guys was involved with DMC. Maybe a few others, but only one notable. There's also a Capcom guy who worked on that very game. Point kind of moot.
Uh...Hideki Kamiya created DMC. And, now Capcom can't even make a DMC game in-house anymore as they out-sourced it to another developer. The Resident Evil series has been less than steller without Kamiya or Shinji Mikami at Capcom anymore. When Capcom lost the Platinum guys, they lost all their best devs outside of the fighting genre devs. Capcom was a studio that could CREATE a new IP like Resident Evil and DMC, now they can't even make quality sequels to those established series.
