This sales doesn't do anything for me, no devs or IPs I care about.

Splash Damage could easily be folded into SIE to work on existing or new IPs.

I'm not sure how to feel about this. I haven't played any of the games under Leyou's umbrella, but they have worked on some big projects, especially on the multiplayer side of things. At the very least it diversifies their portfolio.

I wonder what Sony IP would be suitable for the RTS genre. Killzone Tactics maybe lol?

Resistance could work.

Already a large number of units over 5 games, and fairly easy to add to it.

Resistance seems to be the better fit for the RTS genre than Killzone now that I think about it.

Also, another interesting thing to consider, is Leyou's connection with SNK. Could it be possible for Sony to acquire the rights to this team too if the Leyou acquisition goes through? It would be another versatile addition to the SIE umbrella. 

Around the Network

Looks like Leyou is in exclusive talks with Tencent now, can't pursue anything else for 3 months. So no Sony for now.
