News of Microsoft's takeover of Bethesda came as a surprise. PlayStation fans are now calling on Sony to step up and buy Konami.
PlayStation: Fans are unsettled
A few days ago, Microsoft bought ZeniMax Media for $ 7.5 billion. This has secured the Bethesda group and popular brands like The Elder Scrolls, Prey, DOOM and others. Fans are now unsure of the effects this will have on PlayStation exclusive games in the future. Xbox assures, however, that previous agreements will be retained and that it will be decided on a case-by-case basis for games in future.
Fans urge purchase from Konami
Konami has released a number of iconic video games. Including titles like Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania and not to forget Silent Hill. There had been rumors in the past that Sony planned to acquire Konami's IP. Nothing has come of this so far, but that does not mean that there will be no more exclusive Konami deals in the future.
Fans definitely agree and urge Sony to buy Konami to stand up to Microsoft:
"PlayStation plz responded to the Bethesda purchase by purchasing Konami. Leave the IP free. End our torments."
"Sony we have to buy Square Enix & Konami"
"Please Sony, PlayStation. Buy Konami and make our dreams of Silent Hill, Metal Gear, Castlevania (etc) come true."
"Sony buy Konami, I beg you"
"Sony please! You know what to do!!!"
We do not know whether and what plans Sony really has, but Konami would certainly be a candidate that could be worthwhile for both parties. What would you think of that? Feel free to write it to us in the Facebook comments.
