You asked for it, and god has bequeathed it to you cows.

Perhaps time to pepper your buttholes and pretend you never liked Insomniac? Who knows who this could be.

How is asset stripping in the video game industry good news for anyone who likes video games?

@Chutebox:

They've created two large scale studios this gen (black tusk and initiative) and beefed up Playground Games with a second studio, and staffed all three of them with leadership from the biggest AAA studios in the industry, including your favorite PS exclusive developers. (R*, Kojima, Retro, Naughtydog, SMS, Guerilla Games, chrystal dynamics, etc...among other 3rd parties)

What more do you possibly want them to do? Why should acquisitions be limited to Sony like when they bought ND?

@StrongDeadlift: What does this have to do with Sony? Are they the ones in a buying spree?

I would like new studios for new games. It's simple.

Lol lemmings don't like video games, they like MS and would see gaming go down under if it meant MS would be happy. Worst fanboys ever in gaming.

Well, Cows say that MS doesn't care about games just services so MS buys studios... "Why can't they make their own studios instead of buying them?" so MS creates their own studios, "these studios are untested so how can know if they don't just suck, they probably wont make anything but flops" so MS buys studios with a proven track record, "Why can't MS just create their own studios instead of buying them."

It's like Trump Derangement Syndrome but in video games, it's MS Derangement Syndrome.

I've literally said none of that but what you quoted me as saying (and I stand by it). MS should create their own studios, giving new talent a chance to make games with a decent budget. They have enough studios as is to release games while the new studios work on getting their first games pumped out.

Hopefully its not Supermassive as they're games are average at best, and that's being nice.

I held of initially because of the grinding on rails thinking there might be a balance meter, but there isn't and made the game really good, and MS should really fund a sequel.

Quantic Dream

Or whoever made Until Dawn.

There were rumors about this a year ago.

It makes perfect sense from Microsoft’s viewpoint. They are mid sized developers not owned by Sony and they make “Movie” games.

So Microsoft wants their own movie games to try and win over Sony fans. It would be cheap for MS to acquire either of them.

PC is not owned by MS and MS can't control shit of what goes on,in the PC market so save it.

Again you defend the xbox like a broken disc and don't have one a testament of how shitty it is..Hahahhaaaa

You don't even support the product that lobby here all day long.

lol a few B or C class developers and already they think MS bouth 10 ND like quality developers.lol

So what will be the excuse next gen when they keep failing even with more studios?

Yes it is you need a PS4 for PS4 exclusives you don't need an xbox for xbox games,seem like its the PC the one with the biggest win,specially if you take into account better graphics and free online play + the huge catalog PC also has to offer than isn't on xbox.

Some time in the future we’re all going to be playing under the cloud anyway...so it’s not like we won’t play these games.

Sony I don’t think can compete with MS’s vast lead on cloud gaming on ANY device.

They can if they are willing to move away from hardware locking of games. :)
