The only ppl who would actually care are forum dwellers who will make a bigger thing out of it then it really is. Even if your scenario comes to play, it won't affect MS in any real way.
Regardless, most ppl already blame MS for Scalebound being cancelled, and we already know that Platinum had some issues working with MS on the game. So what difference does it make now? you are talking about a sentiment that already exists around the game.
MS doen't need the IP, they just need the ownership to the actual in game assets, which they do and which I doubt they will give up to anyone else.
It simply boils down to the fact that I see a successful outcome of that scenario being of some small benefit and you don't that's fine , we can't agree on everything.
It is more me questioning how you think that is beneficial to anyone, something I am still not getting from your posts. But it is what it is.
Well I wouldn't say there is much to question.
Lets be honest, are Nintendo actually going to fund a game called Scalebound, a game that has zero clout beyond being a potentially cool game but was cancelled?
A least with Bayonetta and Marvel Alliance we have games that released and had an actual fanbase. Marvel is big atm, and Bayonetta had already been partially funded by SEGA so it was easy pickings for Nintendo who were also have haing W101 being done. I highly doubt MS gives up the assets for the game, and I doubt Nintendo tries to buy them.
ANd Scalebound was originally a wii exclusive with a slightly different look on the same concept. So its pretty easy for Nintendo and Platinum to make a game that is similar to Scalebound (because honestly this happens a the gaming in gaming) and just use an original name instead.
So the rumor of it being Scalebound can be both true and not true.
