    So... Sony buys MS first party. MS hosts Sony event and tells the world PS5 plays XB games. Turns out there is only one platform, of which there's low, medium and high end boxes, Lockhart, PS5 and XBSX.

    That'd sure turn some heads!

    Isn't it about time for Bungie to get tired of working for the same place and jump ship again? What's the odds on Sony buying Bungie?

    Bluepoint and Kojima are obvious possibilities.

    I'm hoping it's Sanzaru.

    He is the type to post cryptic tweets every so often, so when news happens he can seem informed. Check his timeline, it's very transparent once you know what he's all about. His reliability is on the "broken clock being right twice a day" scale.

    There was a rumor over the weekend about a pending studio sale to Sony. This could be a rehash of that rumor or it now coming to fruition. It was suspected to be a European studio, possibly British.

    Too expensive and they should make a public offer. Is easier to buy Zenimax, I think its stoks are not publicly traded.

    Zenimax is sitting on a pile of money at the moment, it's doubtful. I'm going to stick with Sumo Digital sans Forza or Possibly Criterion, I think Sony would like another driving game dev esp. with VR.

    Although I've seen some streamers wondering (half-jokingly) if the reason that Bethesda are milking the remaining Fallout 76 users for as much money as possible (despite the damage it is doing to Bethesda's image among gamers) is that they plan to sell the company.

    Fallout 76 has single handedly turned many diehard Bethesda fans into diehard Bethesda skeptics that now don't believe Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield will be any good. Ouch. All I can say is welcome to the club, Bethesda lost me as a diehard fan when Fallout 3 came out.

    Regards,
    SB

    They've been owned by EA for the last 16 years.

    OMG! Sony are buying EA. ;-)

    If they want a racing studio they should just regroup the Evolution folks and make a new motorstorm and driveclub.

    At this point the only way to make justice to motorstorm 1 and 2 is to hope PC emulation can reach 4K@60hz.

    ah, to dream.

    yeah driveclub is the only "track" racing game i like. and the other racing game i like: forza horizon. eveything else instantly bores me or confuses me or annoys me.

    anyway, if sony gonna buy Bungie... that;s gonna be really weird if Destiny 3 became PS5 exclusive, as Destiny 2 was multiplatform with cross save.
    or maybe Destiny 3 goes multiplatform but only PS5 have exclusive multiplatform cross-license.

    So any additional content you buy from PSN (destiny 3 DLC, cosmetics, etc) will be able to be used on Xbox, PC, Stadia. Uh that doesnt make any business sense

    Well Bungie may be able to itch that first person shooter exclusive itch Sony seems to lack
