Sony paid $229m for Insomniac

Recommended Posts

 

Love that we get these type of information. Wish we could get them for all MS' acquisitions too. 

 

Thought it would be more tbh. Peak Insomniac plus all their IPs.

Microsoft's MAEs (Monthly Active Employees) went up substantially after their acquisitions. TSCHBK. :dame:

Trillion dollar company.  Drop in the bucket :juggle: 

 

If you're counting every dollar and your entire business relies on one product then yes, be more careful.

The thing is, MS has so much money they have no idea what to do with it.. so they invest in themselves.  Money is literally coming out of their assholes.

I've always seen Insomniac as a Sony developer so I'm surprised it took this long to happen.

Insomniac have rejected multiple attempts to be acquired in the past (dating back to the PS2 era). Wonder what changed now.

Didn't know that. My guess would be the huge success of Spider-Man could be the cause of the change of heart.

Very well.. They've established long term investments in the gaming industry and are poised to take over.

TRILLION dollar corporation who pretty much brought 3d gaming into existence...  Also the same huge trillion dollar corporation buying up studios and building infrastructure.. nothing to worry about cows, nothing to worry about .. .  :D

 

is sony even back in the black yet or are they still bleeding red ink out of the anus?

 

What is their most profitable division.  Playstation? :D That's all they got?  wtf? what's their backup plan when MS eventually gets the better of them?

 

That's all it takes and that's how fragile Sony really is.

Yeah that game has done around 10 millions copies sold. Sony has already recovered their investment back on that one title alone. The sequel is probably going to do just as well.

I fail to see how this is cheap in anyway, when Sony has to fund all their games after and their future expansion. This is probably not even half of the money they have invest after buying them.

 

Bethesda bought ID for 20 million

MS probably paid all of double fine's debts for the acquisition, also ninja theory probably cost nothing after all the gay flops they made like bleeding edge and hellbalde, they were desperate for a sale.
