Capcom. Make a real RE exclusive to Nintendo's homeconsole



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

Also any company they would buy would see sales of their series drop off pretty badly imo.
Firstly this means no more mobile games for them, a big part of the likes of Capcom and SQEX.
Series like AssCreed would drop because very few people are going to go out and buy a WiiU for that game. A large part of its fan base is a very casual gamer crowd that plays CoD and Madden on their Xbox or PS.
Same goes for MGS, look at those recent PS vs XB sales.
If Nintendo want to become more relevant in the home console scene they would need to build up a strong library of devs in Japan and the west that can boost sales enough to see 3rd parties return because without them (or some crazy Wii like luck) they wont ever see the same sales the PS brand has managed.

Obviously, Nintendo lacks third party support on both the Wii U and 3ds. If Nintendo has around $11 billion in cash reserves why dont they go on a buying spree or just the aquisition of companies's IP's. There are so many companies they can buy, western and eastern. Ubisoft as a whole is only worth $1.34 billion. Square Enix is worth around $2 billion. Konami is worth around $3.5 billion. Capcom is worth around $1.2 billion. Take Two Interactive is worth only $2.05 billion. If Nintendo bought all of these companies I listed they would still have a billion dollars left (I am not saying they should buy all these but I am showing that they have enough to acquire at least two of these companies). Even Valve is only around $3 billion. (It is rumored to be worth more than EA GAMES which is at around $3 billion as well which is weird since Electroic Arts is worth $8-9 billion) 

Imagine if Nintendo were to acquire Capcom or Konami or Square Enix and Ubisoft or Take Two Interactive or even Valve. In my opinion Nintendo should acquire Square Enix and/or Capcom along with Ubisoft and Take Two interactive. That would come up to a total of approximately $4.6-6.6 billion. They do not even need to acquire all of the company but just enough to gain exclusives and extra features. Nintendo is missing huge oppurtunities by not buying third party companies.

Who do you think Nintendo should buy?

According to this they have 4.9b in cash reserves.

It says over that much but many websites say they have at least 8 billion dollars.



What they should do is be bought by a bigger company like google, samsung or Apple.

The big company would provide budget and strong hardware and Nintendo would continue making games, sounds good to me.

The company will see sales decrease but the profit can be bigger. The company will only be developing on one console thus saving resources for other games. Nintendo will also be funding projects too since they own the company.

Sales could also increase. Nintendo can buy an extremely popular IP and people will have to buy a Wii U to play that game. What if Fifa became exclusive to Wii U? Everyone will need to buy a Wii U as there is no major alternative. The company itself would not be concerned if it sells as much as it used to but it is Nintendo who must step it up a notch and sell.

Why do people buy a certain console? Games! If Nintendo buys a company like Ubisoft, it does not only limit PS and XB multiplats but it increases Nintendo exclusives. AAA games like AC and Watch Dogs will become exclusive to Wii U. This will influence someone to purchase a Wii U. The more Wii Us the more games can be sold.

Googlr so that Ads can fill up your whole TV screen while playing a game? Apple so microtransanctions rip your wallet apart? Samsung so you would have to integrate your Galaxy into every game? Nintendo being bought by a company would cause Nintendo to lose its touch. That is not what fans want.



I think it would be a good idea for Nintendo to buy Capcom. Since they are currently having there problems. They have Monster Hunter!!! Along with games like Mega Man, Resident Evil and so much more. I think most of those company's aren't buyable based on them costing to much and aren't for sale. They offer more studios and games they can push out.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

I have to go with Capcom and Take Two interactive. Capcom provides IPs like MH RE Street Fighter and Mega Man. Take two provides IPs like GTA 2k Sports Red Dead Redemption. Capcom has Monster Hunter which is huge in Japan. Take two has NBA 2k and GTA which are huge in the west.

I know EA is also huge but EA follows the money and as soon as Nintendo starts selling Wii Us, EA will return. Sega and Nintendo can collaborate as much as they want since Sonic sells best on Nintendo. Ubisoft will also follow the money and return to the Wii U.
