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

 

ea acquired respawn for 400 million

ms acquired rare for 350 million in 2002 dollars

zenimax acquired id for at least 105 million, final price isnt known afaik

Insomniac IP are worthless beyond what is owned by sony

 

remove spiderman and ratchet (both Sony's) and they have nothing of value

 

truth is they probably were dying for sony to buy them and this saved the studio.

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. 

xbawks seriously just banddwgon'd copied sony and a multiplatform machine. Nintendo is the 'billion' dollar company who pioneered gaming. I'll even let you try Sega. But Microsoft?  lol didn't even have exclusive serieses.  just a few.

No ms is actually worth 1 trillion. Not make believe money like your mentioned for Sony and ninty. Yeah Sony and ninty have money but nothing close to what ms has. That matters when your going to sell hardware at a loss at launch. Point is that ms can afford to take a bigger loss in order to get the ultimate win
