Do people actually think no company would want to buy the God Of War, Uncharted, Last of Us, Infamous, GT, LBP,etc. IPs?
Wow.


I thought Naughty Dog owned Last of Us and Uncharted, sort of like how Rare owns Banjo Kazooie.

Naughty Dog basically is Sony.
Also Microsoft owns Banjo since they own Rare 100%, just like how Nintendo owns Retro 100%

The WiiU hasn't even been out a year yet. The ~2 year old system that's struggling is the PSVita.

Nintendo is a game company. Sony is an electronics company. The president of neither company know anything about running an electronics company.

Would Nintendo fans want ANY of Sony's IP's on nintendo consoles?


Why would you think ANY Nintendo fans would have a say in the matter?

Sony itself would end up in a merger, whether its game development studios will be up for auction or not is hard to say.
