Capcom will be fine as long as they have Monster Hunter, but I am worried about the health of Konami.
Actually, the same can be said of Konami and Metal Gear Solid. They've pretty much got Kojima covering their asses.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

Then Lords of Shadow 2 just takes a big, semi-solid, smelly, pea-green dump all over everything.

I think Kojima's the only thing keeping Konami afloat. MGS titles sell assloads and every reveal has gamers drooling. I think they're only keeping the company named "Konami" out of tradition(and the Japanese are very traditional). Had they been less traditional, they could very well rename the company "Solid Entertainment" or "Solid Studios", and nobody would care(well, we would, but our feelings don't count)

And yes, Konami and the rest of the Japanese developers are starting to be so short-sighted that I fear for their existence in the future. But we can have hope for the new indie developers.
Really, I don't care if big studios go under. People who make such bad decisions deserve to feel the heat of their consequences. The only thing I see bad with a big studio closing down is that they take their franchises with them.

Yea, I would suspect that MGS is the glue keeping Konami together.

I mean, if they got rights to ninja turtles again, would that even matter at this point?

It seems like the big name companies are at their wits end for keeping that appeal factor high

I could almost see them doing this to bring in the older Castlevania titles to the newer generation. Since Lords of Shadow has been out for a while, Konami would release the older titles, with some fixes, to bring in the people who know only Lords of Shadow. Although, given Lords 2's not-so success, I'm not sure how it would fare.
