During Sony’s quarterly conference call for investors and analysts, CFO Hiroki Totoki talked about the PlayStation business.
congratulation sony nearly 14 million ps5 units sold and ps4 still marching on nearly 8 years 117 million sold next year going to be big year for ps4 still as well
More purchases sounds good to me
Does it? I'm not a fan of industry consolidation.
Why, honestly I hate what MS did and started this purchasing thing and now Sony’s is following its step. It’s like a acquisition war now.
Sony needs a RPG developer and Casey Hudson just created Humanoid Studios, so bringing him on to make RPGs would be cool. Another great company to buy would be Level 5 and then we can get Dark Cloud 3.
Agreed, an RPG dev would be amazing. Could u imagine a big budget sony rpg exclusive, ahhhh now i really want one hahaha
...like say Legend of Dragoon 2? That would make my millennium.
To bad that's a dream, people been talking about dark cloud 3 for decades.
one would assume as a Japanese Company Sony must have an RPG studio but nope they don't. I think it's time Sony start investing in RPGS, it doesn't have to be AAA. I think Sony got discouraged after Legends of Dragoon and Final Fantasy was Console exclusive anyway.
Since Sony Pictures is a huge part of their overall business and revenue stream, acquiring Square Enix is the move they should make. Obtaining all of that IP would open up possibilities for not only their movie and tv division but expand on their recent acquisition of Crunchyroll as well. I’d watch a Final Fantasy anime series with a more serious tone.
They won’t do it until fans start requesting it of them on twitter/other media channels. That is what led them to Housemarque and Bluepoint. If enough fans are vocal about it they will finally open their eyes.
Going off what's missing Sony needs An RPG studio, like you've said, something along the lines of Elder Scrolls / Fallout A Survival Horror studio, something similar to the Resident Evil remakes or The Evil Within A First Person Shooter studio, most likely to work on new IPs or even old FPS ones like Killzone / Resistance
They should. They are on fire on the last 3 years. It's quality games after games. There no waiting for 6 or 8 months or a year for a quality blockbuster
More people making those quality games is great news. Keep'em coming!
Fantastic news. Hope they add Ember Labs to the Playstation family.
Loving all of the work being done by PlayStation at the moment. The only thing I would really love a fantasy RPG developer to fill the void that the Bethesda acquisition has left but who knows, something could be I the works that hasn't been announced yet.
More employment, more awesome games, more sales, then repeat the cycle. It's not rocket science, it's simply making your consumers happy.
