Studios still have their independence to do as they please. Insomniac is tight with Sony, but they also made Sunset Overdrive and a bunch of VR games. Quantic Dream made the Cage Trilogy and thanks to their relationship with Sony they were able to release them on PC too.
The escalation in fanboy cheerleading will be sad to see. Nintendo and Sony fans already started overreacting to MS acquisitions, the moment someone buys a company like Capcom, this will become a mess of warring for stuff like "buy Square Enix!" "buy CDPR" etc.
Yes, dare I say this thread is making an incredible leap of assumption and should be closed."acquisition integration activities" looks pretty vague to me. Could be anything unfortunately, nothing here implies that something moved recently about a new WWS studio acquisition.
Also, we're still waiting some official confirmation about Manchester Studio and San Diego Studio #2. Hopefully during the PS5 reveal, that would make sense.
Yeah, if I was Sony I'd buy Naughty Dog again just to make sure I own those guys.
It's a contract Position, not a perm Position. Which means it's an urgent vacancy.
I'm joking about Sony acquiring Square lol. But yeah Square did say that they had some sort of special partnership with Sony during the end of their E3 conference. Have no idea what that partnership entails.
Microsoft doesn't bother me too much. I feel like if Sony let them Microsoft would pump out games to the PlayStation, but Sony bothers me a whole lot because they don't even like Crossplay.
This is an odd take, Sony's been great at managing their studios and making great successful software with them...
That’s pretty interesting but why would they want Housemarque? Didn’t they recently give up on arcade style games?
Really? Sony did crossplay since PS2 and still have more crossplay games.
It's not random. It's where the US headquarters are located.
Partnering with PlayStation Productions to bring us the new blockbuster movie from an SE IP, Spirits Within 2!
