Capcom holds back on d-pad to guard against takeover/acquisition

0

Every Street Fighter knows that a strong defense is every bit as important as a strong offense ("scoops! Häagen-Dazs!") is. It doesn't matter what kind of moves you have up your sleeve if you're not ready to defend.

Capcom is ready to defend. The publisher plans to set into motion a system that would protect them from any takeover or outside acquisition activities. This is all pending approval at the company's 29th Annual Shareholders' Meeting, but they're looking to block any actions deemed unacceptable to Capcom's value.

Despite the scary talk, Capcom hasn't received any offers yet. But, according to TVG, they believe that due to current market conditions this kind of move could be possible.

"Under such a severe business environment, in order to survive the competition, we acknowledge that the most essential issue is to establish a structure which enables responses to changes in the management environment."

I don't know what kind of super-combo Capcom has worked up, but they do say that they're willing to look at offers that comply with their rules. Yikes!

What do you think? Could you imagine Capcom being bought out? Who would they not want to "alpha counter?"
