Maybe Sony will buy them. However, Lvl5 make a lot of profit from Nintendo games

From Software made Demons Souls


Why does have Sony to buy every studio around? This isn't even their main strategy for 1st party! Sony made studios their own mature enough to split and them they employ more people so their studios get bigger.

Sure they buy some studios, but only when the studio shows interest and being part of Sony venture in the gaming market. Not just payolla buy out.

Just like Insomniac, Sony offered them to buy the studio, Insomniac choosed not to. Level 5 alredy showed no interest and being bought, since they are trying to enter into the publishing business, they are not just developers anymore. This move to have a branch in western, if anyting, just reinforce they shitft from developers to publishers.

Santa Monica huh... Anyone up for God of War RPG?

reintype3038d ago

They'll be next door neighbors to Sony Santa Monica aka "The God of War Studio".

Naughty Dog is in Santa Monica also.

Now they don't have to depend on anybody

This is good for their smaller games but I think they're likely to be extremely happy with their partnerships with Sony, Nintendo and Square Enix. They owe all three quite a bit.

Da One3038d ago

They can publish the ip's that they own without sacrificing a lot of the profit from them.

I love Level 5 because of all the games they made for Sony. So even if they still work with Nintendo, SE and Sony i'd still be happy.
