Forums - Gaming Discussion - Fromsoftware is extremely better purchase than atlus here's why, Skinner pathetic meme

Eldin ring released in 5 months it sold 16 million while Persona 5 + royal (not strikers) sold 4 million in 5 years Soulsborne is the stronger IP franchise I get not many like the anime JRPG which speak volumes on sales. Eldin Ring takes Western roots the right way adds japanese flavor of scary monsters making them into western coat of paint alittle. SO ask yourself Which RPG powerhouse would you rather acquire in your portfolio Eldin Ring IP or Persona and all of atlus ? The shockwaves if Microsoft gets Fromsoftware from Kadokawa and Sony steals ATlus , While Sega still is independant I know who's stick is bigger looks at Fromsoftware.

Eldin Ring looks down on persona 5 and other anime rpg series sales with this nasty meme.

PS I'm doing this for Sega you'd understand if you were a Sega fan but you probably dont since your a fan of Microsoft/Nintendo/Sony? I just don't want Sega to be a target OK :/

The link title below 17 million in 6 months

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

Or Sony gets Fromsoftware from kadokawa differently? Before Microsoft ever thinks about that purchase?

Both FromSoftware and Atlus already have parent companies. So unless either studio is struggling on a consistent level to where their parent companies decide to sell the studios, or either parent company decides to sell, Kadokawa Corporation (FromSoft) and Sega (Atlus) I don't see either studio being bought.

It's obvious the sales powerhouse in western RPG's is in a different level compared to JRPG and few try to look less hand drawn looking at (Monster Hunter series which is not hand drawn) but even Monster Hunter world can't stop Elden Ring.

Only Final Fantasy 7 remake very powerful sales can keep up, and that JRPG aint hand drawn anime like the other JRPG's since Final Fantasy crosses the barrier morso real looks and ditches hand drawn with Persona uses hand drawn JRPG's, I think Final Fantasy 7 remake is 9 million on Playstation only. Most hand drawn JRPG's are overlooked like Dangan Ronpa , Fate exstella , Trials of Cold steal Disgaea. etc. I don't blame population about the anime hand drawn shy away.

Kadokawa owns them. Can we stop this shit of asking everyone to buy everyone? Feels like spam now. I stopped even trying to make topics because I knew they would be buried with all your spam topics. It's really annoying.

And so what? Sales aren't everything. How much did it cost to make/market the game? How much of the money generated actually ends up as profit? More importantly, if you were going to actually try and buy one of the studios how much would it cost? Diversity is also important, say you're Microsoft, you've already got big western style RPGs with Bethesda, do you really need more? Getting something that would actually give you a presence in the Japanese market would make more impact, even if the sales are lower, since you'd be selling to new people rather than existing customers.

Well MS certainly could buy both if they wanted and regulators allowed. But talking real world constraints your point is perfect. Companies would make the ROI analysis of let's say the 2 option and see which would give the corporation as a whole the biggest bang per buck, and as you said the investment that is smaller, sell less, etc can have a bigger impact for their bottomline than the bigger one be it total or per dollar invested.

You're right I think, I mean Having too much of the same in you're portfolio is not a good look Microsoft needs a JRPG with hand drawn flavor though If they settle for Japanese games like those of Eternal Sonata or games similar like Dragon Quest thats a plus since too if anything Microsoft is heavily loaded with western rpg guns adding Elden Ring wont help their console look that sexy to groups like me the reason I made this thread was because I'm like a gaurdian to Sega themselfs from all the purchase wars? But if Microsoft wants to be the netflick of gaming they have to get 3 or 4 hand drawn JRPG series and 2 Japanese games crossing the non hand drawn sphere ala Dragon Quest I can't remember who created Eternal Sonata but that game is not hand drawn its a game I mentioned many times I loved since 2017 It like dragon quest 11 on switch whatever its called pixellated anime. Microsoft should go after few japanese developers that have those qaulities. while Sony buys From software if Kadokawa allows it? 

Sony will have a a kinda a Western RPG in fromsoftware or buy the Witcher developer while they are now 2 billion net worth and still shrinking The witcher 3 sold 30+ million Wither developer is only good at witcher not so much on new IPS but Sony can lead them to not be lazy when creating a new franchise like witcher developer created cyberpunk 2077 and ended up a mess? Which Japanese developers should Microsoft go after Activision deal close I think they should go to Marvelous they are loaded with hand drawn games . Nintendo and Sony don't need those types. Nintendo has Xenoblade 3 but is not hand drawn which is great series But Nintendo probaly doesnt need any? Sony needs stronger port folio and hand drawn wont do that? Unless they want a fighting game like arc system works which is fine too since that is kinda hand drawn but it's more 3D hand drawn , only Blaz Blue is fully hand drawn I think? 

I think It's the cutscenes in Persona that have the other crowd going the other direction in not making persona have massive sales like Dragon Quest? but Persona gameplay is different ? It's not like Dragon quest in art style maybe because dragon quest looks more Dragon Ball which is sexy look to all audiances? Persona does not look like Dragon ball. I edited OP to clear things up like I said several days ago I'm protecting Sega non Sega fans wouldn't understand because they don't bleed Sega forever! We would still have 4 kings. by now!
