I don’t understand why many want Sony to buy Square. Because it would be easy perhaps? The problem is that the vast majority of Square’s game sales are already PlayStation players, and Sony already has extensive exclusivity deals in place. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free, as they say.


Wouldn’t it be wiser to go after an entity with more broad based appeal, that would stop casual user attrition as opposed to just servicing the most hardcore Sony fans?

Well,

1) Back catalogue for Square, Enix, Taito, Eidos and Crystal Dynamics games.

2) FF14 is probably the only in vogue MMO atm. And looks to be for the at least the next 5 - 10 years.

3) Eidos and CD can easily fall into the Sony-esque dev structure.

4) Marvel GotG IP.

5) Ensure this content remains on PS.

I agree that there are probably better choices, like Capcom, but I think SE can be a valuable asset nonetheless.
