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

Is Metal Gear not a big enough name for you? Kojima can either still work on new titles, while Metal Gear handed to a Sony studio, and that's 2 AAA games right there. How about Silent Hill that makes a lot of noise from the PT demo. Still nothing as big as Bethesda buy, but that's a 7.5billion price tag.

I don't know if Konami would be good enough. If they do, M$ would buy SE or Capcom.

I highly doubt that SE would sell to MS. Capcom...possibly. Square, if they were going to, would probably sell to another Japanese publisher or something. Another thing, just because MS has tons of money doesn't mean they can just go buy studios left and right. They've acquired some big studios already. I don't see Sony doing that either to a lesser extent. Someone mentioned Platinum Games for Sony to buy. That's certainly not happening. If they would sell to anyone, it would be Nintendo.

The Japanese government would never approve the acquisition by a American company



Free Suikoden !
But to be real,taking over their ip's is not like taking over good studios that can make those ip's.

This is essentially damage control. And I love it.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

It's been a while. Good titles just so inactive I don't know how big a bomb making them exclusive would be.

Only one I could think of would be Ubisoft. Third party, and they still make a ton of games.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Lmao! These fans think Microsoft and Sony are on the same level



Pocky Lover Boy!

Metal Gear is nowhere as big as Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest. Or Tekken or Pac-Man. Its hype was a lot bigger than the actual series was, thanks to Kojima being a diva. Resident Evil is a bigger name than Metal Gear.

Suikoden with Sony will be just as used as Arc the Lad and Wild Arms. In fact it would be worse than that, you would get gotcha mobile game.
