Sony has bought developer Media Molecule, the guys behind LittleBigPlanet, in a move that will come as a surprise to absolutely no one.
Media Molecule has done nothing but good things for Sony’s platforms with LittleBigPlanet, and the game was such a huge success that it only makes sense for Sony to buy them out.
Sony put it this way,
“The acquisition will enhance the talent pool within SCE, protect past and current investment and ensure a solid base for future investment. Media Molecule have exciting projects in the pipeline and we’re looking forward to sharing these with you in the not too distant future.
The most important thing is that nothing will change from your perspective; Media Molecule will simply continue to make great games. Welcoming Media Molecule into the PlayStation family will allow us to better support their future titles and ambitions.”
