They would have to wait until exclusive talks with Skydance is over and the decision on that before a bid could be made. But yeah that's a different move for Sony, I would rather them invest those billions in gaming instead but that's just me.

I actually think its more likely that Sony acquires a gaming publisher after this. Especially if the spin off of their financial division isn't factored into this acquisition, since they have enough cash on hand currently, to structure a joint venture where they are a majority shareholder. Although I think there is a lot more implications to the gaming side with the IP and transmedia ventures Paramount has. 

Games like Nickelodeon All Star Brawl 2, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3, Spongebob The Cosmic Shake, South Park Snow Day, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredders Revenge, or older titles like The Warriors and South Park Stick of Truth, add a lot of variety to Sony's gaming vault, even if they aren't console exclusive to PlayStation, or even under Sony Interactive. I also don't see why Sony wouldn't leverage these IP's for PlayStation Plus. 

That's before considering how Sony Interactive could leverage these IP's and manage them to create higher quality products.
