Personally, I'd be most excited in them getting Bluepoint. Their remasters and remakes are something else. And I love how they reverse engineer the games so as to not lose anything. Can't wait to see their next project.

And for a certain user's sake, and really my own, I hope we get that LOD remake.

Purchase Bluepoint and put them to remake FF IX better than S-E would do, then get LoD.

I'd love to see a remake of Ghosthunter, an overlooked game on PS2. It was a blast to play and had great acting.

I somehow doubt it. I guess they will try acquire Bluepoint. Insomniac doesn't want to be bought, Kojima Productions seems very soon, and not really a studio buy but a Kojima buy.

lol.

I never said it wasn't going to happen.

Platinum is way to close to Nintendo to be bought by anyone but them, in my opinion.

That's my thought too and I believe it will happen. Now that Sony has bought Insomniac I think we are going to see more defensive purchases and Platinum is the big one for Nintendo.

This relates to something I mentioned in the other thread but I think companies saying "We love our independence" is more PR than anything. Ninja Theory said they liked being independent until they got bought by Microsoft. Insomniac too. I think companies won't go out there and say they hate it and will speak how it works for them. Behind close doors they seem to be more than happy to take a deal. 

This isn't to dogpile you twintail. I see where you were coming from with the information we knew. I think these companies aren't upfront about it.

3/3 on this prediction by years end!



My dreams are Kojima, Supergiant, and Remedy. Housemarque would be very nice as well. Supergiant’s games—both Transistor and Pyre— are some of my favorite games this gen, and SG doesn’t get the credit or sales they deserve. Sony could help build them.

The only reason I could see Sony hesitating on buying Kojima,’s studio, esp if they see DS as a hit (which their 11/8/19 release date certainly suggests they do), is that it’s such a one-man show. If something would happen to Kojima, or he retires in 10 years at 65, the studio just wouldn’t be the same.

Sad to see, from my pov at least.

1/3 so far. Not sure about Kojima Productions. Depends on Kojima himself really and how much he'd ask for. Bluepoint is definitely one I'm hoping for. Would love to see them continuing to remake great PS Classics.



I think next will be Kojima P, But i think it will depend on the success of Death Stranding.
