Now Microsoft only need acquire Sony, Nintendo and Foot Locker. Followed by Pepsi purchasing Microsoft.

End game.

makes sense. Good acquisition.

I can't wait to see what they do with the freedom of making something from scratch.

I wonder if they will need to hire more creatives or if they already have that untapped talent.

Neonridr488d ago

I'm sure Sony trusts them to handle something. Sounds like they are making something new anyways. Exciting.

Dope!! Another great purchase to add to their already epic portfolio.

What's interesting is that Sony didn't have to spend that much to acquire Bluepoint games, Housemarque, and Insomniac and made more revenue and profits from them especially Insomniac. 🤔 But I'll keep that to myself. Sony is making smart acquisitions

you don't think MS will make a boatload from acquiring Bethesda?

CaptainHenry916488d ago (Edited 488d ago )

They spend 7.5 billion though or something like that. Sony acquired insomniac for $229 million and they already made that money back. That was like a steal 😳 especially for the quality of the game's insomniac makes. It's going to take some time for Microsoft to make that money back. I actually believe insomniac makes better games than some of the studios Bethesda/Microsoft has imo. Not all the studios but some

@CaptainHenry916 - I'm not surprised given the waters around N4G (joking around). Naturally it's gonna take some time, but there's a lot of studios now under the belt of MS, and remember that every Bethesda game moving forward sold on PC, Xbox, Playstation or Switch is money in the bank for MS. I don't think it'll take too long to see the fruits of that decision.

I gave you an upvote but that's still going to depend on the games they make are good and reviews well.
