Atlus might not be a good acquisition for Nintendo

Digitally Downloaded writes: "As I sit here writing this I don't see any real evidence pointing to that being a wise business decision. Atlus would make a better acquisition for a publisher in Japan that perhaps lacks in a localisation business, or one that lacks for RPGs. It would seem more logical to me for one of the mid-tier developer/ publishers in Japan to be the one to pick up Atlus."

it will be interesting to see what will come out of this and of course the classic meltdowns cause a certain company didn't buy atlus while another did will be hilarious especially the death threats

MacDonagh1168d ago

I thought the Bayonetta 2 thing was a little overboard. I can't wait to see what will happen if the deal actually happens.

bicfitness1168d ago

What will come of what, exactly? Its entirely speculation without any basis in reality. I've seen two articles that are filled with nothing but fanboy dreams. You could replace Nintendo with Sony or MS and you'd have exactly the same sort of article. Equally as vapid and baseless.

MacDonagh1168d ago

It's not exactly vapid or baseless. Either of the big 3 could conceivably get Atlus. The first thought that came to mind would've been Square-Enix or Namco being able to acquire Atlus and their assets but I don't think that may be feasible. Both companies in question are hemorrhaging money and I sincerely doubt that either of them will be able to justify an expenditure when they should be cost-cutting.

It's the same with the big 3 as well. All of the big 3 are losing money but they perhaps have more leeway compared to 3rd party companies who live or die by software sales. Nintendo or Sony would be a good fit for Atlus.

If Microsoft bought Atlus; the meltdown would be absolutely hilarious.

While it would suck for me as a gamer, as I'm a big fan of Atlus's output and I dislike the Xbox One because of the Kinect 2.0 attachment; I won't get too worked up about it. I'm not an entitled person who wants their games to be on everything. If Atlus's work becomes exclusive to a console; I will judge the merits of the console and decide for myself whether or not it's in my best interest to go and buy the console to play Atlus's games.

Microsoft does not care about games, just the money.
*Don't think I'm a fanboy just because I hate MS, I own all three consoles and both handhelds*

I prefer Sony buy them but if Atlus goes to Nintendo I'm buying a Wii U I don't care. There is no way in hell I'm missing out on Persona 5.

DonFreezer1167d ago

I don't prefer nothing. Preferring makes you a delusional fanboy. Whatever console they release their games their fans so get it.

ApolloTheBoss1167d ago

Oh please. I 'prefer' Sony buy it because I already have a PS3 and a Vita and would rather not folk over +$300 for a Wii U in order to P5. But if have to, Best damn believe that I will.

One article on pure conjecture opens up the pandora's box.

wingman32x1168d ago

Tell me about it. This is crazy. It's also kind of funny and a little sad.

That's the gaming media for ya lol.

Foxgod1168d ago

Its more fitting for Namco Bandai imho, becaue of the style of Atlus games.
