A group of passionate Sony followers have apparently began wanting Sony to reply to Microsoft’s latest buy of Zenimax (and due to this fact Bethesda) by shopping for Konami. The initiative is seemingly a well-liked sufficient concept that “Konami” is at present trending on Twitter at 16,300 tweets, although there’s no telling if Sony will reply to it.
The rally apparently began on a ResetEra forum after which unfold to Twitter as soon as the thread was linked in a submit, so it looks as if the suggestion is kind of a well-liked one, even when it’s not at the identical degree as many different kinds of trending tweets earlier than it.
Konami has had a checkered historical past with avid gamers for the previous few years, primarily due to what many see as mistreatment for a number of standard franchises comparable to Castlevania, Silent Hill, and, most not too long ago, Metal Gear Solid. Most of those titles haven’t had new video games in years, as a substitute being relegated to pachinko machines.
Sony is one in all the massive giants in Asia, and even throughout the world, not simply being a producer of video video games but in addition different leisure comparable to films and extra. They even stood up towards Disney in a dispute over who owned the rights to Spider-Man and who would get extra money from it.
However, that doesn’t imply that they will purchase Konami, regardless of what Sony followers would need. Konami can be an leisure large, with a networth of $34.2 billion. And Sony possible wouldn’t make such an unlimited objective with out good motive, which rabid Sony followers are usually not.
But at the identical time, there’s hope for them. Rumors have gone round not too long ago that Sony and Konami are at present in talks to try to revive Silent Hill as a Playstation 5 unique, which may give gamers some hope after Silent Hills was cancelled due to Hideo Kojima falling out with Konami.
It’s only a rumor although, so we should always most likely take it with a grain of salt. While it could be the dream of many Sony followers to get all of the basic Konami video games again into Triple-A initiatives, such a factor is probably going a pipe dream that we’ll have to sadly take care of, regardless of how many retweets it will get.
