CarlosX360 Writes: "Earlier today, Square Enix announced that it has acquired the rights to True Crime: Hong Kong. Looking at it, I had a question knocking at the back of my head: Why not buy Take Two?"
Worst. Grammar. Ever. Interesting idea though. An SE-owned T2? There's no middle ground with something like that. It would either be totally brilliant or utterly execrable.
What grammar? :P
square has no money. what do u mean buy out take two? maybe Sony should buy square?
Yeah, but then, why would they invest a lot of money into buying True Crime: Hong Kong? Other than the success of the Yakuza series?
I don't understand why is T2 soo eager to be bought out?
Funding, son, funding.
SE is a big company with a lot of money but like many other companies based out of japan they have the same problem. They don't know what their market is and they are loosing and will be loosing a lot of money. very long development time with all their games and when games do come out they tend to be missing features or misunderstanding the western market sequels after sequels for 3ds i mean why have kingdom hearts 1-2 on ps2 than have all the spin offs for handheld here is how i can fix SE: make a HD remake of ff7 and release it for both xbox360/ps3 make KH1-2 hd remake and if possible make some of those spin offs in HD and sell them all on one disk for 59.99 make sure the next dues ex game doesn't take that long and hope for best with this release because it can either be a huge title or bust FF13 versus how can a game that was announced so long ago can still have no release date(what you have not learned from other companies long development time usually means good games not great) True Crime if done right has a lot of potential so now you have the rights while it won't be called true crime. Add planes and stuff and make sure its as good if not better than saints row series(there are 2 open world game saints row and gta look at both and make the changes that are required for true crime) tomb raider looks great make sure its quality is top notch Hitman can be great too if done right so find the sweet spot between casual and core gamers SONY OWNS I THINK 17% OF SE. NO NEED TO BUY T2 EA tried to buy T2 and how did that turn out. I don't want a gta every year or countless sequels for no reason. SE should be a great and big publishers like EA who just made a lot of profit but like many japan based publishers they are living 5 years behind us with their game and ideas. Look at CAPCOM and how much they just lost they also need to open their eyes and get making great game if anyone will buy T2 it will be EA because they give enough freedom to their devs but a lovely case would be both sony/ms buy t2 together and split the profit
I wonder where Square Enix got money to buy that IP??? Way back march-april They said that they were struggling due to low sales of FF14, and multi-billion yen were loss..
only someone like Microsoft or Sony could buy them they would cost way to much
Square enix cant buy take 2.take 2 is 50 times richer than square enix.they were only rich because of final fantasy games that they have been making for very long time.but they started to go bankrupt in this gen.so with the money they made last gen and before that gen they buyed eidos.now eidos makes most of the games for square enix.square enix only makes final fantasy series.eidos is still independent western developer.if they didnt buyed them then they will defintely be bankrupt.
Square-Enix are struggling to recover the losses of FF14. I doubt it's the time for them to go buy out other companies, it's not the same as owning rights to games.
Take Two please do not worry about money as when you release Gta V I guarantee you will be rolling in money
