Ib4 Saudi Prince gets Sega for 10billion.

And then Sonic has to stay by Amy's side 24/7 and/or sell her to slavery while Tails crashes a plane into a New York skyscraper. -_-

It will be funny as hell. At least Nin won't lost too much if it really happens.

Genshin Impact is Chinese, not Japanese. I doubt Prince Bone Saw is going to touch that; but there is the other issue of Xi Jinping. But we already deal with him with the hardware we buy.

Is there ANYTHING we can buy these days without supporting inhuman scumbags? -_- All else I've been able to do lately is hope for change in China and Saudi Arabia.

The Saudis aren't that hard to avoid, unless your country buys gasoline from them and you can't really help that. China is the tough one, but thankfully companies like Nintendo have said they are moving production out of China into places like Taiwan and Vietnam, iirc. The biggest sticking point is common household goods, some of which are extremely difficult to find without having the 'Made in China' sticker. When my cheese slicer broke I couldn't find one in any store that wasn't made in China so I ended up special ordering one from a German company. It cost double the price, but the quality has been miles above the old Chinese ones I used to own and it's already lasted double their typical lifespan. Same for my Swiss can-opener and American whisk.

So far he haven't heard of any changes that have been going on SNK due to the purchase right? And much less that he is moving to buy Sega from Sammy.

And them they would also have to force the component manufacturers from moving from China, same for the foundries....

I'm reiterating this, I prefer Sony style of games over Microsoft but I rather Sega go to Microsoft, but still Sony > Microsoft, I just like their style and their games more than Microsoft, but Microsoft + SEGA is a fitting and worth it but i'll still prefer Sony franchise like Wildarms, Ape escape, Wipeout series, Twisted metal, ETC over Halo, Fallout, call of Duty.

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?

Sonic > Mario/Master Chief/Kratos.

I think Koei Tecmo, and Bandai Namco would be natural fits with Nintendo as those companies have collaborated with Nintendo on several games/crossovers and BN even did part of the work developing Smash 4 and Smash Ultimate, which is one of Nintendo's core franchises these days. Sega and Atlus would fit more naturally with Nintendo imo, but I'd also rather see them go to Microsoft than Sony. Microsoft would still let their games go cross platform, where I feel that Sony would make them console exclusive. Of course, Nintendo really only buys longtime partners or studios looking to be bought so it's unlikely, but it does make me wonder if acquistion wars really and truly got going if they wouldn't be forced to change that policy or risk being left in the dust.

I love how gamers will buy triple AAA titles from companies that have people working 80 hours a week for crunch time.... but we are upset about Saudi.

A company that overworks ppl vs a man who has dissidents brutally murdered?

Yes... quite the conundrum indeed I'm sure.

For now, untill the deal is done completely, we don't know yet.

As opposed to all the nice treatment of people in Asia whom make all our electronics?  While, of course ignoring, where most of us get our energy...  from those nice countries that treat people oh so well.  

Taking a hard stance against SNK because Saudi, while buying electronics from Asia and powering with Russian energy...  sorry, seems like a paradox to me.  

Not too mention the extreme working conditions via crunch and depending on the company severe hostile/harassment working conditions.
