Why Nintendo Should Acquire PlatinumGames

Steve Conger writes, "If it isn’t blatantly obvious already, Nintendo seems to be prepared to hit the ground running with the “core” gaming audience when it’s new piece of kit lands later this Fall. It’s no secret that the Wii, for all intents and purposes, was a glorified gimmick for all but those who took the time to see through that facade. So, with the Wii U carrying on the moniker(and perhaps stigma, for that matter) of the previous generation, how does the big “N” go about drawing gaming enthusiasts back into the fold? Software. EXCLUSIVE software."

It seems that Platinum Games has made many a AAA exclusive offering within the Nintendo umbrella of console gaming. With the likes of Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101 and previous exclusive offerings on the Nintendo Wii entertainment system. It would not surprise me one bit if Nintendo was already in negotiations of some kind with Platinum Games.

It has gone on record that someone within Platinum Games (dont remember name) has already shown interest to work with Nintendo in developing the next iteration of the Starfox franchise. First they make multiple exclusive offerings for the Nintendo fanbase, now they show interest in Nintendo 1st party exclusive offerings. It is looking very much some type of collaboration could come to reality in the near future.

After the much anticipated release of Nintendo Wii U entertainment system AAA exclusive Bayonetta 2. I hope that Nintendo shines its innovative light toward the under appreciated Vanquish IP as well. Vanquish 2 co developed with Nintendo would be a very tasty treat.

Nintendo has been showing great interest in satisfying the hardcore gamer next generation just as much as the casual supporters. A merge with AAA software giant Platinum Games could be an Ace in the hole as far as winning business strategy is concerned. And would provide an earth shattering MEGATON announcement at one of the many gaming conferences throughout the year. I am going to keep my lucky Super Mario hat around in hopes that a deal like this is etched into stone.

Kaos dude you are just amazing! I have to get you on a podcast some day!

But yes, Nintendo should go for it and aquire platinum games. Right along with Retro that would be 2 of the top dev teams in the world working for Nintendo. I would love to see another Madworld plus Vanquish!

LX-General-Kaos2064d ago (Edited 2064d ago )

Thank you for the support good sir.

Unfortunately for me, Madworld is one of those golden exclusives that I have missed out on. I am going to have to slide over to and scoop that game up when I get the chance. I have heard nothing but great things about it.

I am still waiting to play Anarchy Reigns, but there is no trace of that game anywhere.

As much as I hate to say it, as long as PG keeps making quality games I will be a fan of theirs. I'm really not planning on getting a Wii U as my next gen console of choice, but best of luck to PG if Nintendo does acquire them.

Army_of_Darkness2064d ago

Man, oh man, the Wii-U will definitely be a good competitor for next gen if Nintendo does acquire Plat.Games cause they are very talented developers!

Haha1232064d ago

I wouldnt mind if Nintendo bought platinum games, so long as they continue making amazing games like bayonetta

Anarchy Reigns bombed.

That's hardcore.

Information Minister2063d ago

Anarchy Reigns hasn't been released outside of Japan. For all we know, it could turn into a sleeper hit.

Man bro, I like Nintendo, but always thought that you went a little overboard with your comments; you know what? Good stuff! Keep on doing what you do cuz I love to see and hear what people have to say about the truth.

As much as I don't want to admit it, your positive outlook on Nintendo based articles or news, adds a nice twist to all the hate and trolls around here... To be honest with you, I'd rather hear positive stuff about a company instead of trolls slamming, and trying to defend why their company of choice is circling the drain... No matter how many people disagree with you, there's always more that agree with you whether they admit it or not!

LX-General-Kaos2063d ago

Your support is appreciated sir. I usually enjoy your comments as well.

i agree.. I dont share his enthusiasm but i find his posts entertaining.. Always an interesting debate with him.. Professional & respected.. He hurts the fanboys with kind words lol.. He needs to come over to the dark side & give sony his loyalty.. It will be much more rewarding for him as a consumer..

If haters outrage just for one game, imagine what they will do if Nintendo buys platinum games.

Haters will outrage IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

LX-General-Kaos2064d ago (Edited 2064d ago )

The Kaos that will unfold online after an announcement like that would be too much for any mortal to handle alone. I cant even imagine a comment section in an online article. Can you imagine Platinum Games and Retro making a single Nintendo exclusive offering together with Nintendo watching over?
