They have a few IP that are worth owning and sinking some resources in to see if they could garner a larger fanbase for sure.

Red Faction
Saints row
Conan
WWE

Are a few I'd like to see Sony take a stab at... well, not WWE -- wrestling is for butter twisters. But I'd love to see someone take on Conan from Sony and release it opposite years to God of War... Which is getting stale.

Anyways, what are your thoughts?

I'd like to see them take Darksiders. It would be a good addition to their stable of games.

Part of me wants Sony to buy some of these IP... like a Darksiders even -- but I don't think they will buy anything. Reason being, number one reason, Sony has created everyone of their IP in house from the ground up... Even Crash and Spyro were commissioned by Sony via Universal for Sony... So even those, under technicality, were still created for Sony.

I don't see Sony walking into pre-existing IP and claiming them. They like to create their own way it seems...

Auction?

Ehh, Saint's Row, I suppose. It's the only THQ franchise I've cared about since... ever, actually.

Not 100% true, what about the Wipeout series?

Do they own that, though? I thought they just bought the developers... That's a different scenario here completely. This isn't buying a developer. This is buying an IP from a publisher... I think they also own Working Designs Alundra, too. But, again, that is different.

I say deBlob should be something cheap they can get.

they can work off a PSV series of it or something.

Red Faction seems like something they can get too.

I doubt they will be able to touch the rest now will they care if its all 3rd party publishers.

As long as Nintendo or Microsoft don't buy Darksiders I'm fine.

IGN said the buyer of Saints Row will get the developers, too... Which means Sony could potentially do it. I can see them, like IGN said, buying Saints Row with Volition. But would Sony hand the IP over to the Getaway developers? That's what would worry me.
