Is that that big of a surprise though? Wasn't it EA, a year or two ago, that said that single player games were dead*?


* Only to be disproved by games like HZD and Zelda: Breath of the Wild, God of War and RDR2 since then

By "dead" they mean harder to exploit money from consumers with without investing a large amount of money and time into the project initially.

Oxford University found no link between video games and aggression in teenagers.

So what will news shows have to talk about now?

The thing is there are many, many well-conducted psychological studies that have positive or neutral outcomes on a range of domains for gaming. The media just pick out the poorly constructed and reported ones that show something bad and report on them. So it won't change a thing.

Rumours going around that Sony was on the verge of closing a deal to acquire Take-Two Interactive
Huge if true. I just googled it and it looks like the rumour is still current.

Surely it would be in Take Two’s best interest to remain independent? Sony would have to foot some massive cash to cover the difference assuming it would come with some sort of exclusive agreement?

That link also doesn't work as its a US store sale.
Anybody can have a US PSN.

In fact for the first year or so of me owning mine I only had a US PSN. There's just a few extra hoops you need to jump through to add funds to the PSN wallet to pay for things
