Looking like this deal is going to fall through unfortunately (fortunately for some). I don't think some of the forum people realize that leaves MS with what 55-60 billion of cash to burn. Subtracting a few for penalties.

Wonder what they could buy with 55 billion

Any wants?

If it falls through then MS have to go scorched earth and start picking up independent studios.

My list would be

  • IO Interactive
  • Certain Affinity
  • Crytek
  • Asobo
  • Platinum Games
  • CyberConnect2
  • GSC GameWorld
  • Mundfish
  • Skybox Labs

I would love for them to go after Capcom I would prefer them over SEGA but wouldn't be upset at either one I also think that they should go after Pearl Abyss too. Avalanche Studios, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal are owned by a parent company so that would be difficult but not impossible.
