Speaking of acquisitions, I hope Microsoft just announces them when they're ready from now on, they don't want to set an expectation that we'll get an acquisition every E3 because that's simply not going to happen. I'm betting people are already expecting acquisitions at X019 but I'm not sure if they'll grow much larger than they currently are right now, they've slowed down a lot.
They were reportedly in talks with multiple studios probably even at the same time, DoubleFine is probably the only one that they were able to close deal before E3. Personally I don’t think that they are slowing down and I don’t think that they should either with Sony now officially announcing that they are going to expand. It’s currently 12 vs 15 although I’m not saying anything crazy like they should go for 20 plus.
