Products List Possible Error?[edit]

Hello. I was reading the product list on that thing to the right of the page and it mentioned Zombies Ate My Neighbors. I thought that was by Konami, not Capcom? I even have the game for Genesis and it plays it's "Konami chime" at the beginning. I cannot find any reference to Capcom in the Zombies Ate My Neighbor article anyway. I'm not going to touch it though, just in case. Please forgive me if Capcom was involved, in which case it should be mentioned in that Zombies Ate My Neighbors article. -Anonymous

List of games[edit]

Removed this from the article, just before the list:

Listing the complete softography is going to take some time and patience.. but here's a start, should this be chronologically ordered? perhaps on a subpage?

I don't think we need the complete list of games, but if so, it probably should be on another page. And my preference would be alphabetical, not chronological. We should probably also have the arcade games Capcom produced, especially since I think they made their big splash on arcade games first. —Frecklefoot 16:35, 3 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Maybe we should just put in the most notable games. The most important information is what counts the most, after all. -- LGagnon
I vote for including *all* titles by Capcom (probably in another page) ordered chonologicaly. xDCDx 18:17, 1 Aug 2004 (UTC)

There should be more Dreamcast games (such as Mars Matrix, Gunbird 2, and Project Justice) - Capcom gave this system a lot of support.


Other meaning[edit]

I always thought Capcom is just the NASA short word for "Capsule Communicator", the astronaut on ground who talks with the one(s) in space. andy 22:27, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Perhaps you could add that meaning to the bottom after a seperator. —Frecklefoot 14:49, Apr 7, 2004 (UTC)


Titles[edit]

All the titles of games need to be italicised. I'd do it, but I have other fish to fry at the moment. Frecklefoot | Talk 14:07, Jul 30, 2004 (UTC)

Done. Jason One 22:59, 18 Oct 2004 (UTC)

History Section[edit]

We need to fill in the history section. Nothing has been done to it. In order to make this GCOTW successful, we'll need to fill that seciton in. --ZeWrestler 12:15, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I put some content in this section. However, quite a bit of it is duplicated from the intro. I'm not sure what the best make-up should be. Should this info not be in this section, or should it be deleted from the intro. Thoughts? Jacoplane 22:53, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
No. Capcom, the Capcom we know today anyway, was technically founded in 1983 I believe. The actual Japan Capsule Computers was founded in 1979. I'd start the history section from 1983. The information on their startup history (1979) is far more useful in the intro. IMHO anyway. K1Bond007 01:57, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)

Capcom Studio 8 and Capcom Production Studio 8?[edit]

Are Capcom Studio 8 and Capcom Production Studio 8 the same studio? -Hyad 06:04, July 19, 2005 (UTC)

Yes, I believe the actual name to be Capcom Studio 8, Inc. though. K1Bond007 06:37, July 19, 2005 (UTC)

Yashishi[edit]

I would like to see a little part about the Yashishi, that little star-shaped (sort of) icon that Capcom used in a LOT of their games. It was the cursor in SNES Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Invincibility icon in Final Fight 3, full refill in Mega Man 1 (only one in game), featured in Hydron's ending in Capcom Fighting Evolution. It's in almost all of their older games I believe. Maybe when we have some other Trivia to add too there could be a Trivia section. --ScarletSpiderDave 07:56, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Oh, I just found there is a page on it, I guess I was spelling it wrong. I'm adding Yashichi to the links at the bottom for now. --68.249.238.21 08:32, 29 November 2006 (UTC) Oops. Wasn't signed in; that was me --ScarletSpiderDave 08:34, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Nickel City[edit]

I redirected Nickel City here and added some information under the "related corporations" section. Although they're not owned by Capcom anymore, the fact Capcom once owned them is the only real notability they retain, so I figured it was appropriate. (that was my edit there at 72.25.88.201 in the history, I forgot to sign in...) --UsaSatsui 19:03, 17 June 2006 (UTC) What is nickel city.

Microsoft Purchase Rumor[edit]

A rumor that microsoft has purchased Capcom is floating around the interwebs today. Just thought I'd mention it here to alert the watchers of this article. --Measure 22:11, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

The rumor has since been denied by Capcom, FWIW.--Measure 00:38, 13 January 2007 (UTC)


CAPCOM Reference?[edit]

I was watching Sci-Fi channel one night, the first time I've ever seen it, Threshold, some kind of movie , and in one scene, the capcom room (as in capsule communication in NASA), one of the control consoles clearly had the CAPCOM video game company logo. It had that instantly identifiable blue and yellow bold serif lettering. 70.242.145.54 08:58, 10 February 2007 (UTC)



The opening paragraph seems to have been modified to be very biased. - march 23 1:18 a.m. CST(sorry first time post, didn't mean to have it attach to your post)

They are not working on the GTA series[edit]

Provide a source for this GTA claime Duff man2007 18:40, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Pardon, but does anyone here know...[edit]

How to get in contact with Capcom (preferably by mail)?

See, I want to request them to make a Capcom all-star game, featuring characters from all, or at least most, of their games... Like; Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Darkstalkers, Mega Man, Onimusha and maybe Resident Evil, and so on and so forth, but I couldn't find any way to contact them on their site... I would very much appeciate the help and, if not to much to ask for, would like anyone that reads this and knows how to contact them help me create a demand for this game. Thanks. 81.224.28.222 22:30, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Capcom can't accept ideas from people not commissioned to create ideas for them. - A Link to the Past (talk) 01:22, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

The various Wikipedia discussion pages are meant for discussion about said Wikipedia page. What you can talk about on the Wikipedia discussion page is about the content or legitimacy of the page, not about fan clubs or any "nonsense" like that. Lets keep it relevant. mcnichoj (talk)

Name?[edit]

I've always seen CAPCOM written as such, in all-caps. I assume that's how it officially is, and it's reflected in their logo. Should the article be changed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.167.35.10 (talk) 17:46, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Confusion[edit]

"So far the most successful series of films has been based on Capcom's popular survivor horror series Resident Evil."

This crosses me as odd. I don't believe the Resident Evil trilogy is the most successful film series. Was this poorly worded, I am Mistaken, or a factual error? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.17.116.225 (talk) 22:32, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

The RE is the most successful series of films based on a Capcom game... feel free to rewrite that phrase.Master Bigode (talk) 22:50, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:RM2Yashichi.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:RM2Yashichi.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I never mentioned this, but this issue has been fixed. ~ Joseph Collins [U|T|C] 00:43, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Steam?[edit]

Why the link to an article about steam? First, it goes to the article about the gaseous state of water, not the content delivery platform. Second, should that link really just be thrown in with no explanation? Addionne (talk) 19:05, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

http://www.joystiq.com/2007/06/12/capcom-gets-steam-power/ -- At present, Onimusha 3: Demon Siege, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening (Special Edition), and Lost Planet: Extreme Condition are available through Steam. ~ Joseph Collins [U|T|C] 20:18, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Capcom produced Clock Tower?[edit]

In the latter sections, I read that a film adaptation of Clock Tower in is production for 2008. Clock Tower is, however, made by Human Entertainment so what connections does Capcom have to do with Clock Tower?

Complete overhaul[edit]

  • reworked infobox: corrected founding date, revised titles, marked former key people, trimmed products to most popular franchises and ordered them chronologically, updated revenue and net income to recent fiscal year, updated number of employees
  • rewrote lead section to provide a better summary of the subject
  • rewrote history section and discarded mere history of game releases
  • removed unsourced trivia sections "Mascot" and "The Yashichi", as well as the release-historic "Influence in general media"
  • new section "Company structure" with explanation on development studios, branches, and (former) subsidiaries
  • changed the external links

capcom critism over resident evil 4/5/6, the live action films[edit]

The movies have a common hated from classic fans. The community has been split for a long time,

See I'm not alone on this, if you want to find more sources about this then feel free to since this is a weird spread critism that needs to be added. --Ronnie42 (talk) 21:04, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

That should go the games and films articles, really (Capcom has very little to do with the live-action films). --Niemti (talk) 23:18, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

capcom interactive canada[edit]

I changed the office location recently to reflect the office moving from Burlington to Etobicoke, Ontario. The citation needed makes sense to justify the change - however none of the other office locations are sourced, and the actual location of the office is unlikely to be disputed. job posting phone book -Addionne (talk) 18:54, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Ah, the new location in Toronto is mentioned in the old source, anyway! Prime Blue (talk) 19:52, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Controversies?[edit]

I'm just reading the entire Controversies section and the entire thing seems to be filled with petty, not-really-notable issues. I'm not saying that there have not been real issues with things like the "on-disc" DLC thing, and I do not intend for this comment to be a defense of Capcom. But I wonder if some of the other things really should be considered "controversies" as opposed to "relatively minor consumer complaints and criticisms." Stuff like "Fans complaining about new DmC" or "Fans complaining about no Outbreak servers" or "Fans complaining about no MML3" do not appear to be any kind of major controversy to me. I remember complaints for sure, but the section just reads like an outlet for Capcom fans to complain. I'm sorely tempted to delete many of the things in it. TheStickMan[✆Talk] 00:03, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm deleting additions there all the time. --Niemti (talk) 00:10, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and just removed stuff anyway. Hopefully I haven't caused too much trouble. TheStickMan[✆Talk] 02:23, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

2014 events[edit]

Apparently Capcom is going to have a significant stake bought out by Tencent Holdings, the president of Capcom Asia is currently in Shenzhen to discuss a deal. We should probably expect more news in a couple of weeks, though it's probably too early to update the article right now. --benlisquareTCE 13:51, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
