Well, if they are for sale, they probably aren't cheap. That's not a -90% sale, probably :-)

On the positive side -- I don't think Capcom has shooters, whereas Valve is almost entirely focused on shooters (DOTA-2 being an exception). So it would certainly broaden their portfolio.

On the other hand, if Capcom is for sale then they aren't doing all that well, probably. Valve doesn't have truckloads of money sitting around to rescue failed businesses. If they actually wanted a Capcom-IP, buying just that is probably much cheaper :-)

I would have loved to see a FPS MegaMan game...

Misleading. Capcom is a publicly traded company, anybody can buy a few shares and have a stake in it. The company *as a whole* is not for sale.

What you're thinking of is that the shareholders didn't pass a motion that would protect them from someone buying up a bunch of shares. You can't just walk in and buy the Capcom name.

Summary:
Capcom're listed in the TSE (Tokyo Stock Exchange), only. It has 67,723 million shares issued. Of this total 11,490 are from Capcom's own treasury, then just tells the rest. The rest (56 233), the structure is like this:


Crossroad Limited 5,276
J. P. Morgan Chase Bank 385632 4,322
818 517 Nomura Bank (Luxembourg) SA S / Nomura Multi Currency JP Stock Leaders Fd 2,604
Kenzo Tsujimoto 2,008
Misako Tsujimoto 1,964
State Street Bank and Trust Company 505223 1,920
The Master Trust Bank of Japan, Ltd. (Trust Account) 1,803
Japan Trustee Services Bank, Ltd. (Trust Account) 1,709
Yoshiyuki Tsujimoto 1,669
State Street Bank and Trust Company 1,654

Not sure what Crossroad Limited is probably an investment fund. Whereas it is, banks are 7 and 3 Japs to be the founders.
Fast Account, taking into account that there was no stock split (I think there was), and also that no one should hold than it has today, all the free-float of Capcom - 55.66% of the Company - (31,304) costs as of today approximately 532,168 million dollars.

If you own 51% of a company, that company is yours.

That's a Fan made doom mod, how about something like Metroid prime that's not locked to Nintendo Consoles only?

You'd own the controlling share of the company, but you'd need access to their articles of association or partnership agreement to know what you can and can't do with that control.

You start doing things without the consent of the other minority holders or stopping them getting access to parts while still working normally and they can sue you and you wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

Everything KARR wrote, plus:

It also depends on the kind of stock you have, and that varies from country to country.

In Brazil, for example, there are stocks that give you voting rights (and, eventually, control), and there are stocks that only give you profit share, but no voting rights.

The Japanese market may have its own rules regarding stocks and voting rights, so any further discussion regarding control of the company through stock ownership depends on knowing how it is in Japan.

You can call a vote to change the company "Whoever wants capcom to become an LLC, say Aye".

No, Capcom's product line doesn't really fit in well with Valve's style.
If they do though, I hope to see some FPS Megaman.

Valve would make Street Fighter V Free to Play, have free DLC and only charge for user-generated vanity content like costumes and sell tickets to eSports events.

Resident Evil would be like Half-Life and I think they would commission Wayfoward to make Megaman.
