PushSquare: While its never made quite the same song and dance about it as Microsoft has in recent years, Sonys history is peppered with developer acquisitions designed to strengthen its first-party portfolio. It purchased Dutch developer Guerrilla Games in 2004 and long-time partner Sucker Punch in 2011. In the same general era, it also picked up LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule and lets not forget that studios like Naughty Dog were originally independent as well.
While the Japanese giant has outright purchased some teams, its also established several organically. The likes of PixelOpus currently working on the promising Concrete Genie and God of War developer Sony Santa Monica were formed to bolster the organisations exclusive output. But with current PlayStation boss Jim Ryan frequently hinting that the platform holder may be looking to add more teams to its roster, we figured it might be fun to consider the likeliest candidates.
