Microsoft buying Atlus would be amazing.

I would love if Microsoft did this. The pony tears will be awesome! Oh yeah, and it will help Xbox One to sell in Japan.


Yeah, in that scenario, you may even see up to 5% of the tears Xbots are shedding over the PS4's pre-orders trampling the Bone's!

Buying out a niche Japanese company and marketing it to people who don't really buy the system for that genre. Yeah. It'd be amazing. So amazing that Atlus would likely be stripped and liquidated within months of their first release.

American companies can't buy Japanese ones.

Japanese law.


I forgot, Japanese people are xenophobic.

The Boondocks on Adult Swim is my favorite anime.

Nope, no console developer should get Atlus. I want them to be third party and on every system.


Atlus doesn't really release multiplatform anyway. Their games are primarily PlayStation, with the occasional port to the other consoles.


They've released a lot of games on the DS and 3DS and are making a crossover for the Wii U.

So it's pretty much Nintendo and Sony consoles/handhelds they make games for.

Atlus spreads the love. Lets not forget that Catherine was multiplat between the PS3 and 360.

Then, can Microsoft Game Studios Japan buy it?

They can't and I'm glad.

1. No, they just don't want pompous pigs owning their companies. Especially ones that dropped bombs on them.

2. The Boondocks is NOT anime.

Atlus's Fanbase are almost all on Sony/Nintendo hardware....

Wouldn't make sense for MS to buy them.
