WWE is a license thing, it's not like THQ actually owns it. Who knows what will happen to that with the company dissolving.

If I was Sony I'd grab WWE and Saints Row since they can net the most profit.


WWE isn't up for grabs, THQ simply had a license and with them unable to commit to it it simply reverts back to the parent company, meaning the WWE will shop it out and no way they give it too someone like Sony, they are all about market penetration which means their games on every console

I really hope someone buys Homefront and makes a sequel way better than the first game.... not to say the first game was "bad", it was just really short, and the online didn't have enough to do in it.

I wouldn't mind Guerrilla Games to get their hands on it

Sony can't buy anything like that right now. I wouldn't take a check for $5 from them right now.

But, why?

Homefront on 2 platforms did not even outsell either Killzone 2 or 3 on their own...

if anything the KZ IP is far more lucrative. GG would be better sticking with that IP and working on a new IP rather than taking a less commercially successful IP under their wing.


If anything, I think Sony should give any IP's they take from THQ (IF they do) to the smaller companies they are working with.

Like giving de Blob to Tarsier Games (who works mainly on LBP DLC) or the devs for Sorcery or SPorts Champions getting Homefront... give them the IP's and let their own big gun studios continuing with the stuff they actually want to make.


Which is why I think taking de Blob and Red Faction are good ideas. They can easily offset these to the companies they are working close to without the need for super budgets which they give to their main studios for their own IP'.

Predict nothing and hope nothing.

Most I would hope is Darksiders, but honestly, I only like that series because it's pretty much the only Zelda-like series on the PS3. If Sony were to do something like that, I'd want them to create something original, because honestly the Darksiders story is pretty meh.
