RockstarNetwork.net posts an opinion piece on why they believe Rockstar Games should acquire Team Bondi.
I think it would be a smart move. Their facial capture technology alone would be worth acquiring them for. Even though they didn't really invent the technology they've likely spent countless man-hours developing the tools required to make it work for video games.
Team Bondi would make a great addition to the Rockstar family.
I thought Take 2 owned Rockstar.
@guitarded77 They are owned by Take-Two but they've still acquired studios in the past.
I believe all their facial capture stuffs is actually being done by a external company. Someone posted on neogaf.
Team Bondi didn't create the facial capture tech. Its called MotionScan and it was developed by a company called Depth Analysis. I think they're based in Australia. Using cutting edge middleware is one of the hallmarks of Rockstar. They outsource a lot of the tech so they can focus on the creative side of things. Love Rockstar. I'll wait to play LA Noire before I agree that Rockstar should buy them.
anyone know why sony kick them out?
R* should acquire remedy&team bondi
Oh man if R* made a psychological thriller with Remedy....that'd be epic
Hopefully Remedy will not implement any more annoying Stephen King references, that made the otherwise great Alan Wake, into an unimmersive cheese fest, in their next project....
ya. Hopefully their next game is a little more varied too. Combat wise atleast
R* should definitely acquire Team Bondi!!
Rockstar should show us info on Agent
Its only a matter of time.
One thing is for sure tho.. R* have to start make their games faster and give some more information about them Just look at Agent (No info) Max payne 3 (No info) and possibly next GTA ( No Info) So maybe start hire some more workers R* ? We know u can afford it ;) Or work harder LAZY FUCKERS :)
They shouldn't aquire anyone before they've proven themselves. Team Bondi made like 1 or 2 games for PS2. That isn't proving anything.
They should wait for the release of LA Noire before even thinking about acquiring Team Bondi. I'm sorry, but Team Bondi has yet to release a game, and as of now, their work has been judged by a few screenshots and videos. For all we know, LA Noire could prove to be a disappointment in the gameplay department. Also, considering the fact that some (if not most) of Bondi's staff is coming from Team Soho, I really feel we should wait to play the game by ourselves before calling it great, as The Getaway was, in my opinion, far from being anything great. Let them prove themselves, then buy them, not the other way around.
Only if Rockstar bought SquareEnix, we would see a good open world FF game again. But then again we'd have to see how vXIII goes. Anyway, I agree, Rockstar Games and team Bondi would go great together!
rockstar cant acquire studios, thats up to take 2 to do
And here's silly me thinking they already had^^ No doubt they should tho, great minds should bonk their heads together to maximise the quality of their products imo.
