Even though Eidos has had a troubled past, Square Enix is still eying the British publisher. Will the Japanese giant save Eidos?
SE needs to save themselves.
F*CKER! You beat me to it!
I was going to say that too lol
Great minds think alike!
Am I the only one who doesn't see the benefit in this. Edios hasn't had a great game in a looooooooooooong time, so why is Square trying to acquire a company that hasn't made anything wowing. I could see square partnering with EA, but wasting money on Eidos REALLY. I guess they wanted to get' em before EA swiped up every American company. The only thing I can think of is they need the extra development support in order to get their games out quicker. If they do help Eidos make some more games they nned to bring out a good Soul Reaver, and plenty of new and original IP, and by original I mean games we haven't played before.
Funny you should say you could see them partnering with EA because they did before they eventually bought all the joint owned offices and published their own games in America.
They need to make good games to save themselves...
I support their entry into western markets, but Eidos? Really? Also here's a little known fact, Eidos handled the publication of the PC port of Final Fantasy VII in the US. Weird huh?
Strange how those two companies have gone different ways and it's all come full circle.
Wow an article not insulting Square Enix. I think it's a food deal for Eidos and Square Enix are playing it a bit risky but Crystal Dynamics are talented(I don't know much about the other teams) so it might just help the western expansion SE is undertaking.
sad truth i know...im a guy
Yeah. That girl can be MY savior ANYTIME SHE WANTS!
"im just here because of that picture" classic!
Truthfully, if SE wanted to purchase a western studio I wouldn't pick Eidos. Aside from Tomb Raider, Eidos' most popular series was the Legacy of Kain franchise. But I love the LOK and Soul Reaver series too much to see it milked past its relevance as Tomb Raider was. From a gaming stand point, it would be a waste of money. But on the flip side, IF they purchase Eidos, at least they'd have more hands to work on all the other projects SE decided to focus on instead of Final Fantasy--the remakes, the ports, etc.
I kind of agree but they didn't mention LoK sadly because I'd love to see at least one more LoK games, maybe even just start with a port of Blood Omen to the DS(although I don't think Eidos owns the IP).
Obivously they wont ditch Tomb raider (sadly) , but please SE revive legacy of kain ...
This will probably turn out for the best...maybe they will infuse a bit more QA into Eidos titles
