Capcom gets Social

Japanese gaming behemoth Capcom decides “if you can’t beat em’, join em”. Articles and analysis by:

BusinessWeek ” Capcom follows Electronic Arts Inc. in looking to capitalize on the popularity of games on Facebook and News Corp.’s MySpace, a market ThinkEquity LLC estimates will triple to $2 billion by 2012 in the U.S.”

Gamasutra ” As far as the online space goes, Capcom already digitally distributes titles on consoles and PC and the company recently said it’s at work on Mega Man Online with Korean online game maker Neowiz.” Blog!Ironically, at a time when the big players can’t move fast enough to get their video games onto the social network, we’re seeing FarmVille maker Zynga all but pack its bags and (possibly) get ready to move off Facebook completely.”
