Capcom only has a tiny amount of money.

Editor's Note: We realize this news came to light on Friday, but didn't want it to go unnoticed. I also fixed a few grammar points and added a header image. As caboose_-1 points out you can find more details on the financials here 

As the title implies. Capcom only has enough money to sit on. Their constant problems with the ever shrinking fan base has finally caught up with them. Needless to say, $152 million isn't enough to run a company of that size. The advertisements and development coasts alone will run them dry in only a matter of months if they keep their current business practice. I guess pissing off us Mega Man fans and making a terrible remakes of a gaming franchise didn't pay off after all.

All joking aside. I know that this is only the ending to a company that gave me such great games as a kid. Games like Mega Man, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, the Disney titles like Aladdin, Chip and Dale, and their most resent release of DuckTales.

Wait... I'm getting word that that last one was a remake. Makes sense. I remember playing that as a kid as well. Now I might be acting mean about this, but I'm sure some of you are not happy about this news. Let me know in the comments below.
