They definitely have hit a rough patch as of late. However, they also published Odin Sphere and developed Demon's Soul so....

Edit: Ah, yeah, that's right. Atlus was the only one with the balls to publish it in the US. Didn't Sony back out because they were too scared the game wouldn't sell well?

They actually just published Demon's Souls it was From Software that developed the game.

Edit -
Yep. They thought it wouldn't do well because of the difficulty or something I forgot their reason to be honest. Either way when the sells data came in Atlus said it exceeded their expectations. Which is great.

From Software developed Demon's Souls. Atlus just published it.

From Software and Sony Japan studios developed Demon Souls while Sony published it in JPN, Atlus in NA and someone else in EU

Sarcasm or exaggeration?

I really hope Sony buys them out. Atlus has provided some of my greatest JRPG experiences over the past few years, while S-E has not.

The only worry is about their western publishing, will the parent company be less enthusiastic?

Like Square-Enix, like Namco-Bandai.....

Atlus makes great DS games too, so Sony buying them would suck. My goodness, N4G IS a bunch of Sony fanboys.
