And now, the annoying sequel to thread about if Nintendo had to be bought by Sony or Microsoft. Cue the sarcastic applause.
Okay, so it's occured to me that Sony's gaming division might not be as profitable as we thought, and Xbox hasn't been profitable for Microsoft most of the time.
Since Nintendo seems to be trumping the two of them financially most of the time, if either PlayStation or Xbox had to file for bankruptsy, which of them would Nintendo buy?
Maybe Xbox, so that Nintendo could regain the rights to various Rare franchises, but many of the original Rare staff left (Not just the ones who formed Playtonic Games), and I don't think Nintendo would do well with grittier brands like Halo or Gears of War.
Maybe Sony, because it could help them make ammends after the big fiasco in the 90s, but just like with Microsoft, Sony's first-parties might be too gritty for Nintendo to work on.
Well, those are my thoughts, what are yours?
