Would be based if it actually happens, Platinum could make a real comeback with this and Bayo 3. Maybe even MGR2 now that Konami is back but that's wishful thinking
Looks like they are trying to get acquired by Microsoft
>Inaba responded, “The most important thing for us is to have the freedom to make the games that we want to make. What I hear about the recent acquisitions, I don’t think Microsoft is going to start micromanaging Activision to where they take away all their freedom… I don’t think it’s going to be a relationship like that.
>“I think there’s going to be a lot of mutual respect there and I think Activision will be able to continue doing what they do best. That’s also what’s most important to us at the end of the day, whatever form that takes for us and our company. So I would not turn anything down, as long as our freedom was still respected.”
Pretty sure that's impossible under Japanese trade laws (Jap companies can't be owned by foreign companies) but I wouldn't be surprised if they got bought out by Sony or maybe Square Enix
I decided to look it up, seems like there's restrictions and stuff but it's possible:>The law requires foreign investors to report to the Japanese government and undergo inspection in case they buy 10% or more of stocks in listed Japanese companies or acquire shares of unlisted firms.>If the government finds any shortcomings, it can order foreign investors to change or cancel their investment plans.
Not sure why people think that law exists then, maybe it's outdated info or just a misunderstanding of the current rules. Hell even if it did exist a big company like Microsoft would just hire some Jew lawyers and find loopholes
>>5712>Not sure why people think that law exists then
I think it's just something weebs came up with because they are terrified of Japanese studios being bought by Western companies, never even heard of something like that until the Xbox acquisition spree. Especially since most of the companies in Microsoft's price range are weeb favorites like Platinum and Sega.
yeah /a/ is always talking about how le evil tranny ess jay dubyas are going to take over Japan and ban anime tiddies so you're probably right tbh
>He was later asked if PlatinumGames had discussed the possibility about bringing back Scalebound with Xbox.
>"I can’t confirm or deny anything, but we could be talking to Microsoft. But we could also be talking to Nintendo, Sony, Capcom, Konami or anybody!" he responded.
lol they're basically begging for it. Realistically who would even want to buy Platinum when it comes with no IPs anyway? Sega owns Bayonetta, SE owns Nier, Konami owns MGR, Nintendo owns W101 etc.. They'd basically just be paying to employ a bunch of washed up old dudes
/a/ is the opposite and puts their heads in the sand with regards to any western infiltration of Japan, they're worthless
Also fuck Platinum
They cucked to Tencent cash and defended GaaS shortly after said cuckery, no point in bothering with them anymore at this point
any Japanese company that sells out their integrity for a few yuan isn't worth shit
It's a view I've seen on 4/a/ in the past at least but those fags are always doomposting about something. Not saying it isn't happening (Japs have obviously known for a while that their media has a big Western audience) but people who think they're suddenly going to become ultra feminists and ban kawaii lewd anime grills are retards who don't realize how much money otaku spend on that shit
the japanese business man can fall for propaganda just like any other businessman
If they can fall for the false china market meme they can fall for SJWism in the face of their audience telling them no; if SJWs control the marketing and HR, they prevent the flow of information from the consumer to the decisionmakers, the marketing team then influences said decisionmakers to move in line with their agenda
iirc they already tried that shit when some Mexican was hired as a designer for DoA and removed the sexy outfits, when the game didn't sell because of it they fired his ass and added them back in. Also So(n)y tried to do the same to Namco with SoulCalibur and they told them to fuck off or they'd make it an Xbox exclusive
The game will be great. But it'll probably sell like shit though. Like all Platinum games
Bruh just because they damage controlled doesn't mean it's not fucked, for example Ryza 2 is censored and DoA6 is still shit in most ways, it's just less homo than it was at launch, doesn't get into all the other shit from that same company regardless
lol forgot about that one, so dumb
>people being this naive
I really loved REmake2 but I think they butchered REmake3 in every regard. Jill's design was so derivative and boring she looks exactly like the Tomb Raider remakes. But worse than that her writing was just lazy and obnoxious just constant cursing because "badass".

The budget ran out when Re3 happened. That's why most parts are either recycled or missing from the game
