Has PlayStation ever done an extensive gameplay SoP for a multiplat title before? They have for timed exclusives, but not for multiplats I think. This would be the first time.

Yes, first SOP for a sole multi platform game.

Yeah. 

My tinfoil hat says maybe an acquisition announcement. Jim did say they're not done yet, and this seems odd tbh.

Maybe they're honoring the existing contracts, and hence its still coming to Xbox consoles?!

I believe PS has exclusive marketing rights and some content. 
 

Regarding acquisitions, they will only acquire successful developers. Port key/Avalanche is yet to prove as so.

Even with 1%  of the population, they appear successful to have influenced the entertainment industry and politics at least in the west with undeserved reservations for them for the sake of diversity or adjusting the story/script to appease or not offend them. This sets a dangerous precedent regarding what is considered true freedom and what can cannot be discussed for fear of cancellation/victimization. This hard left/liberal politics is equally as bad as hard right in terms of speech. 
 

Jk has the right to speak out whatever she says. She fights for woman rights which is a noble fight. There are concerns for eg transwomen having unfair advantages in women sports or cannot be jailed for molesting women and girls. 
 

I could say that you are phobic to my ideas/opinions, hurt my make up feelings and you should be cancelled or banned. You should support me. If not, you are a some sort of phobic person. 
 

If that’s the kind of society you want, humanity is doomed. 
 

BTW, I don’t really care if people make fun of my opinion but I would like valid criticism or a healthy debate which should be encouraged. 

Let's take this 1 by 1.

 

Diversity hires or affirmative action as its called is controversial but an effective tool for uplifting marginalised groups. 

It's just math. Let's take the example of women. 

For many specialised fields, there simply are 1/10th of women than there are men. They could be as talented as men but statistically, when 90% of applications are men, they have very low chance of being picked up for review let alone getting hired. 

And this is ignoring the entire existence of the concept of referrals and unconscious bias. Most jobs are filled through referrals and a guy would probably end up referring another for statistical as well as behavioral reasons. A dude is just more comfortable and feels more camaraderie with another dude. Besides that there is the comfort zone factor where if most people in a department are guys, you're naturally going to lean towards hiring another guy because you don't have to make any adjustments. 

Now this applies for all minority groups. 

So, diversity hires are essential for 2 things:-

1. Having diverse views in the work environment 

2. To prevent the workforce from being a complete sausage fest

Like, my dept currently only has upper caste men. At some point, we got the mandate to hire 2 women on the team and it just makes sense. 

 

On the point of sports, molestation, etc. These are all issues which can be tackled separately instead of criticising an entire class of people. 

Regarding women rights, there are far more pressing issues for them than some other guy who identifies as a woman calling himself a woman. Actually, this point has never ever even come up in my real life conversations with any woman whatsoever.

 

So at the end of the day, I think it's just another case of the right being snowflakes.

What will they do with the acquisition when the studio doesn't even own the IP. They don't even have much of a history to speak of.

If an acquisition happens it will be announced on a random weekday just like always.

PS Blog posts are generally written by the studio head/game director. And no way this is any acquisition, WB studios won't come with any IP so no one will bother anyway. The only interested publisher for these guys may be take 2. Their internal studios take years and years to put out a new game just like WB so it's a perfect fit and a match made in heaven.

If you are in North Korea or Russia society, where there is only one set idea/rule and any form of dissent/ different view get you arrested, you would feel the same
