Capcom, which has been around for over 25 years, would give the Xbox 360 a large advantage over the other consoles. This would be because they would have exclusives such as Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Mega Man, Street Fighter, along with a couple other small brands. Having Resident Evil all to themselves in Japan would definitely help out Microsoft who has never been able to break into the Japanese market well.
Interesting news for 360 fans, not so good for others. MS is back to the old buying machine days. 🙂 Well, who knows…it is a rumor only at this point.
