Forums - Sony Discussion - Outlandish Rumor: Sony is in talks to purchase Zenimax and all owned studios

Too big for Sony to buy in one single purchase.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Could be but seeing as most of these games are best on PC i wonder how usefulll of a purchase it actually would be

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

The rumor are saying " it's still on talk ". So if it's ended up not true it's probably it's just a rumor or probably Sony cannot afforded. But my opinion Zenimax are to big for Sony to buy, unless there is a big money problem on Zenimax that they desperate with money. I put this rumor as just a dream.



Zero chances.



Too many people are complaining about lack of exclusives and this move of acquiring studios by Sony and Microsoft will suck for single platform owners. Make sense that Zenimax might be looking to unload their gaming division. Well I just hope that in the future both Sony and Microsoft will be using Xbox Xcloud and exclusivity won't matter anymore. I don't mind giving my money to Sony to play their exclusive without buying a consoles.

If it happens I still don't see Zenimax going PS-only for their releases. Just way too much money loss for them it would be. I don't have the exact numbers but it seems that Zenimax games sales have a big share on PC and Xbox, probably more than 50% so it would be dumb for them to go PS-only. So, even if Sony purchases them, I expect them to continue releasing multiplatform games.



 

That is the most retarded shit i Saw in this fórum after people saying Microsoft Will buy cdprojectred



 

Slightly less believable than the Take2 rumor a while back.

Hopefully this doesn't happen because MS will just buy out CD project Red as a reaction. Besides, Sony needs more Japanese support not Zenimax. Their Japan sales numbers are in the toilet. Capcom, Sega or SE would be a better fit. Hell even Falcom or something. They have FF7 Remake this year for a boost and that's it for Japan.

THIS  TIMES 10000

That makes far more sense, especially buying someone smaller and far more related to them like Falcom (a company that has already released and has continue to release PS exclusives), not to mention Falcom games are amazing in pretty much every single aspect except tech wise since they look like Vita games to be honest... a AAA Falcom game would be effing Awesome, and Sony could indeed benefit from trying to reagain some lost ground in Japan, that being said i dont think this will ever happen since i have no reason to believe Sony even cares about regaining market share in Japan not to mention in order to do such a thing it would take far more than this...
