This is my japanese developers chart acquisition wants

Sony gets Konami/Capcom/Square Enix/Namco Bandai/Fromsoftware

Microsoft gets Koei tecmo and to some etent Sega if the prince pulls another move on capcom? or a square enix?

If Sega is selling hopefully they sell Atlus to Sony first, Microsoft can buy the rest.



Well, hope for good coming years.

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

Eh, things like this are inevitable and one of the reasons why I never dwell into politics or look into info about the industry.

Personally I'm still going to buy SNK games.

I don't really buy SNK titles to begin with, but yeah I can understand not wanting to support a company that belongs to someone like the Saudi Prince.

That Saudi prince is probably after Sega as well.

No. How about no monopolies and let 3rd parties be 3rd parties. What you propose is how you kill an industry.

Don't think I've bought an SNK game... ever? Guess I won't be starting now....

But if there is a port of CvS2 I will buy it royalties be damned.



Don't care still buying metal slug tactics.

Nice, I didnt know it existed. I love tectics game, might check this out.

Anyway, I dont get why we would say goodbye to SNK games because an evil guy bought the company. They are all mostly owned by evil guys.

Not that it would change anything for me, last time I played a KOF game was when KOF 99 was released on arcades, I didnt like it and never came back to SNK games. Now, KOF 94-98 is pure love.
