Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony acquires Bungie for $3.6 billion - staying multiplatform

I'm more interested on where are the "professional forum business analyst" that kept assuring everyone that Sony can't afford to do billion dollar acquisition.

I've seen this countless times here as I have been lurking for a while now, I'm interested to hear from these "professionals" now, talking like they know the whole Sony corp financial cap

I prefer SEGA as a 3rd party but SEGA would make more sense under Nintendo's roof than MS. Sonic qould have better quality control. Nintendo is morelikley to have some classic SEGA IPs revised as they fit a Nintendo audience better. Atlus would do wonders not just making Persona but assisting other studios and then imagine a Atlus/Monolith collaberation. The one downside is Yakuza would be on lesser hardware. Again I hope sSEGA can stay 3rd party but if they have to go somewhere. Nintendo makes more sense.

In america the 4th gen war is more than if Microsoft bought Sony , if Sony ever becomes 3rd party , that's why that generation 4th was the best console war generation ever and the Genesis does commercials made us really give Nintendo the business , it was especially personal when kids compared Sonic is better than Mario and having Nintendo make Sonic better is bad taste to 4th generation fans of SEGA . (It's like Microsoft buys Sony in 2040 and Microsoft fixes Uncharted what was perfect already in 1992 ala Sonic 2 and 1994 Soinc 3 and Knuckles)

I'm well aware of thr 16 bit war. I was there.

That felt like wishful thinking more than anything. 



I'm still pissed a Super Mario fan socked my friend and me in elementary school , and the many messed up things that stupid Super Mario bully did dont want him to have the last laugh on us Sega Fans , and the many stories Sega fans had to deal with Final Fantasy vs Phantasy Star other adults growing up in the 90's we don't want Nintendo having the last laugh on us , hated the fanboying in 4th console war it was worser than xbox 360 vs ps3 or PS4 pimp smack Xbone.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Nice.

I wonder if they mean multiplat means just Destiny or new games.

Hope they work on Resistance or Killzone.

I hate saying things like this but Nintendo, go get Platinum games and maybe Koei Tecmo.

I hope they don't. I don't see Nintendo putting their games on any other platform.

A bit odd that Bungie will be "an independent subsidiary" and they will remain a multiplatform studio. Especially with a deal worth $3.6 billion.

I'm pretty sure Xbox made an offer, probably with a lot more money. Perhaps "independence" was the Cherry that made Bungie choose Playstation.

Well, Bungie is staying multiplatform, even for new games.
