I dont think they could buy squarenix, or nintendo or any of that stuff. Not because of the money though.
Square is an interesting prospect...theres been rumors that they might be for sale but its hard to tell....
They dont seem to be doing bad but i dont think they're doing great. The userbase might get tired of their constant foot shooting decision making though.

Nintendo.....no dice at least not anytime soon...not with the continued success of the Nintendo Switch and they have been branching out into other entertainment ventures (Lego collabs, upcoming movies, super nintendo
land, mobile, etc). They've been able to right the ship and then some after the Wii-U almost led them off the cliff.
And as Trunks said earlier, there was a story where MS approached Nintendo to buy them out some 20 odd years ago. I think whoever told the story (Dont remember if it was Phil Spenser who told the story) just simply said they were laughed out of the room. If Nintendo was in more dire straits than when they were at that time they MIGHT have more seriously entertained a buyout offer.
They've been buddy buddy with MS for the last few years so if anyone were to buy out Nintendo at any point in time, I think they'd be ok if it were Microsoft.

I've been expecting the Sega announcement for quite awhile now.

Um I think the reason the Sega thing will never happen is Sega's ties to organized crime in Japan. Something I'm almost certain MS, or anyone else really, wants absolutely nothing to do with. It's why they never get bought out.

Probably bad news. When has an M$ acquisition ever been good for the consumer?

Maybe. Although given the absolutely **** storm happening at Activision/Blizzard and the complete mis-use of there developers talents to just drive COD on the Activision side... I can't see it being worse.

The Bethesda/Zenimax acquisition. They were looking for a buyer and Microsoft was the best for them and the gaming community overall. Anyone else with pockets that deep would have been a disaster.

Also, these game publisher/developer acquisitions fall under the auspices of the gaming division, led by people who know what the hell they're doing and do have the consumer's interests in mind. This isn't the Microsoft of old either. Even the CEO of the entire corporation (Nadella) is all in on gaming.

I personally prefer MS has charge of Diablo/Call of Duty than Activision. Might also see some older franchises make a return, like Prototype and Soldier of Fortune.

As long as Spencer is in charge, I'm sure this will all be fine. After he eventually retires, anything could happen.

I'm still dubious at best. M$ has been "all in for gaming" before and they dropped the ball completely.

Don Mattrick. Especially under Steve Ballmer. They wanted to milk xbox for profitability, and simply lacked a love or understanding of the medium.

Be curious to see how quickly they rejig these games for game pass. Aren't they doing a new client for windows to get rid of the dumb UWP? Should make the process easier. I wonder what this means for battle.net though.

It could be they will ingrate Battle.net features or it could be like SubCog said.

I think people overestimate the value of some game companies. Just because MS hasn't done hostile takeovers does not mean they cannot.

The bigger question isn't who will MS buy next it is who Sony will buy next. Given the current Square Enix relationship and the pedigree behind them as well as both being Japanese companies it is a DISTINCT possibility

Sony probably do need to buy a studio or two. I think Square Enix would be a good candidate with their franchises.

except they just lost some big exclusives they had for the younger market with the lose of activision. Right now their 3rd party exclusive partner is what square enix? and only for CERTAIN games and even then can be very hit or miss on what they deliver.

(I am massive FF fan and even I can admit they have had some misses)

I could very easily see Sony buying square enix to be the defacto home for JRPGs and bonus get tomb raider and deus ex franchises.

HOURGLASS = most appropriate named ICON/CURSOR in the Windows world :-)

In a dank corner of ATI central, the carpet covered with corn flakes, the faint sound of clicking can be heard........Click......click, click............as the fate of the graphics world and the future of the human race hangs in the balance.

I know....I know........Keep my day job :-)- catcather

But they learned their lesson. Look at MS as a whole the last decade. Open source embrace etc... they are different anima todayl. Learned hard lessons.. and LEARNED from it.

MS kicking ass is welcomed!

Also helps that the current CEO doesn't give a sheit where potential customers are, he just wants to reach em. Like the exact opposite to Apples walled garden approach.

They'd have to even be interested in being acquired first and foremost.

Secondly, Sony already has a really cush relationship with them. They don't have to acquire them to keep that going and still get exclusives.

It's clear M$ is attempting to take over a large portion of the gaming market. That will never be a pro-consumer move. For one thing, its terrible for privacy rights regarding M$ ability to gather and sell more peoples biometric data.

Edit: Maybe they should talk with CD PROJEKT RED?

I think your mobile phone (Apple/Google) + FB will have WAY more data on you then MS will ever have.

Apple/Google + FB doesn't have an S that can be replaced with $, so M$ is clearly more evil.
