And the Lost Odyssey IP from MS so Mistwalker can finally make LO2.

I'd be okay with them buying Mistwalker so that I don't need to buy an Xbox One to play their games. I don't agree that Lost Odyssey should have a sequel, though; the story ended with everyone right where they belonged (well, all but one, some might argue). Another game very close to its style, though, with hypnotic short stories enhanced by alluring kinetic typography and sound effects, would be most welcome.

LO didn't end where every character belonged, it ended where it was meant to, it does not need a sequel. To give it a sequel would be to rob it of its emotional weight.

Nintendo does not need to buy Platinum or Mistwalker. Platinum has proven itself as unreliable and incapable of producing hits, and Hironobu Sakugachi is better left to his own devices.

A sequel to an already great jrpg would make the first one better by comparison. I'd rather they focus on a new game entirely, like they did with The Last Story on Wii.

Nintendo should buy Earth.

Then we can all have what we really want, to be enslaved by Iwatatatatata and Miyamoto-San.

To be fair, the overall plot of the MGS series sounds like it was written by a 7 year old on amphetamines.-CrystalKing5426

I fully expect nintendo to buy platinum games. Here's why. First of all platinum's games don't sell well enough to keep them afloat as a third party. They also don't own any of the IPs they've created. They can't even develop games without the backing of a major publisher. Sega, sony, capcom, have all turned their backs on platinum. So there's not a lot of places left for them to go besides nintendo. Plus they've been very vocal (especially kamiya) about how much they enjoy working with nintendo. And platinum is a relatively small development team. About 120 employees. About the same as monolith soft and retro studios. So it wouldn't cost nintendo much money to purchase them.

Now I know that a lot of people would rather they remained third party so everyone could enjoy their games. But if staying third party meant that there's a chance they might become defunct in a couple years, I'd rather nintendo just buy them.
