Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

Someone certainly needs to buy them as they are just sitting there doing effectively nothing.

Konami is probably ripe for adquisition, but I'm willing to bet they have some shady businesses that might scare buyers away. Nothing good can come from all the gambling they're in.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Not gonna happen. Konami is insanely rich and many of their IPs are valuable. Maybe Sony can make some deals for exclusivity though.



Shouldn't people be asking Sony to buy somebody that actually makes good games though?

Well they want them to just buy the IPs. Unless youre saying Sony dont have any good developers...



Is Konami a good example? If we are talking eye for an eye that would be Platinum, Square or Bandai imo.

Good IPs then. Konami don't have any of those either.

Castlevania, Contra, Metal Gear, Silent Hill?



I mean,there's a lot of companies from the 90s sitting on IPs. Look at Capcom. Either way, I think it's fine. Microsoft needs more exclusives. Sony? Not so much. Everyone's saying Sony should buy Konami so that Sony can make games with those IPs, but Sony is already busy with its own IPs.
