[URL=http://www.cube-europe.com/news.php?nid=3233]GameCube Europe[/URL] brings up the rumours of Nintendo making the moves for acquiring game developer Capcom and probably merging with its all-time rival, Sega:

There is a rumour that Nintendos big announcement will be revealed on this Tuesday and what will it be? Apparently, Nintendo want to take the Triforce collaborations further down the line, by actually buying out Namco and Sega. But Namco backed out, feeling too much creative control would be taken down to Kyoto so Nintendo opted to go for Capcom. The deal should either be done or almost completed, this would give Nintendo a larger creative base to fight Sony and Microsoft.

Just a rumour for now, we will see later on the week.
