Instead of buying new studios I would prefer if Sony should Re-open their old Studios,
Zipper (experts in Multiplayer games)
Evolution Studios ( arcade racer) Considering how slow PD are
Build New Studios with likes of Amy Hening, David Jeffe in leads.
Also Building more teams inside exisiting studio will be more efficient
I don't see the viability of opening studios that were losing money for years, and without the original teams (which will be practically impossible to get).
I also don't think either Henning or Jaffe are worth it at this point for Sony. If Henning could actually get her management skills tightened up then sure Sony is the best fit for her. But after the UC4 debacle I'm not sure so sure.
Definitely expansion is the way to go for Sony and clearly their modus operandi going forward. That said, a studio like Bluepoint is, nonetheless, quite a good fetch for them if they try to pursue them.
