First of all, FromSoftware. From has always loved working with Sony, and becoming first party of the grounds that they deliver three killer apps each generation would apparently be easy for FroSof. Not only would this land them the Soulsborne team in general, but also Armored Core.

Second, Bluepoint. They've already shown with SotC that they can translate timeless classics into the modern generation. I feel like their remastering skills could set a new standard.

Third, Insomniac, because we don't need another mishap like Sunset Overdrive being stranded on Xbox Island, away from the fans who would have appreciated it. Also it seems weird not having the Ratchet team in house.

And finally, Kojima Productions. Sony writes a blank check, Kojima delivers something unbelievable once a generation.

having blue point as an inhouse studio that always works on remasters would be great.

 

kojima one makes sense.  the japanese dev they need

 

also from software was already acquired by kodakawa games a few years ago

Doesn't mean Sony can't come in and swoop them up for enough money. From is great, but it's not like they're regularly pumping out 10m sellers.

Insomniac has stated multiple times that they want to stay independent. And no, sunset overdrive wouldn't exist if it weren't for xbox, so your second point is moot anyways.

I still think Sony should acquire then, and it didn't change the fact that Sunset is stranded on a platform that generally doesn't appreciate it.

Bungie, and make a new sci-fi FPS to out Halo Halo.

Both Halo and Bungie have fallen from grace.

It would be a waste of money.

Ready at Dawn because I want a new The Order:1886 sequel!!!

I want an order sequel as well, but they have to stop being arrogant with the FPS debate. It didn't earn them any points. The whole 24fps to be more cinematic BS was inexcusable. They have to learn how to deal with the fans better.

Hello had fallen from grace for not having bungee make it, and Bubbie has fallen from grace for making a deal to produce a certain number of Destiny games with Activision.

@ bold: Why would it be a negative thing? If anything, Sony are quite hands off and give enough creative freedom to their own studios while bankrolling their projects. Case in point Guerrilla Games and their transition from an FPS type of studio to making something like Horizon. Or the fact that Polyphony seems to have free reign to create 1 full game per console generation and no heads roll.

So, yeah... what's the negative there? 

The negative is Sony. It has a spotty publishing record, and I'd rather some of my favorite independent studios, which are doing fantastically and ALREADY providing exclusive content for PlayStation, maintain their independence. It's a win-win. Honestly, I don't want to see another Sony Liverpool, or Evolution, or Guerrilla Cambridge. Check out this quote from Tom Jones, who was jettisoned with the rest of Cambridge:

"Traditionally, being part of Sony pushing new hardware has challenges. Chasing that hardware developing and keeping up with that is very tricky. Often, artistically, you have to make compromises here and there and make concessions where you don't feel you have to..."

Plus, I think Sony's "entertainment DNA" is a bit at odds with studios like Insomniac or From Software. As someone who is turned off by cinematic action games and narrative-driven titles, I don't want to see some of my favorites pick up any bad habits.

I don't see how Sony taking Kojima as first party would make his games even more cinematic lol

Also, the third party exclusive games like Demon Souls and Bloodborne to me were the very best From Software has ever made, so I really can't see how them becoming first party would hurt at all. If anything it would give the financial stability to not having to put a B team pushing Dark Souls (e. g. DS2) past it's welcome just because it's a cash cow.

In my 30+ years of gaming, I don't know if anything compares to the two-pronged disappointment of Halo post-Bungie and Bungie post-Halo. You had one of the best American game makers around and, arguably, the best first-person shooter series of all time. Now? Both Halo and Bungie are mediocre.



What about Capcom?



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

I agree that the decline of Halo and Bungie sucks.  But, I don't think the decline has been as bad as you imply.  Halo 5 was a good game, and Bungie is still a top-tier studio.  Its just that, as you mention, both the game and the developer spent a decade or so at the very top.  That meant the only direction to go was down.

what harmed sunset was the time chosen to release the game. A lot of the Xbox userbase doesnt even know it's a thing since it came and went under the radar. It's not about appreciating or not appreciating the game.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
