Sony Corp. has bought game development studio Sucker Punch, the company behind inFamous and inFamous 2 series of PS3 games. Experts say that the tech giant was very pleased with the work of Sucker Punch and decided to buy it.
Sucker Punch Studio is the developer behind a number of PlayStation games as well as Sly Cooper games. It is based in Bellevue, Washington and has worked with Sony Computer Entertainment since 2000. It was acquired earlier today and it is expected that this acquisition will prove beneficial both for Sony and Sucker Punch.
It should be noted that the Sucker Punch studio is one of the elite game developers and interestingly, was founded by Microsoft employees in 1997.
inFamous is the most popular product of the company so far and if we are not wrong, the success of this game played a huge role in acquisition of Sucker Punch.
Sony Computer Entertainment has long been known for its acquisitions of upcoming game developers. Previously, in March last year, Sony bought LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule. The LittleBigPlanet was highly successful and even today, some people like to play it on their PS3.
Sony desperately needs to buck up its PlayStation Network as after the cyber attack which affected millions of its customers, the company lost a large number of its customers worldwide.
Will this acquisition help Sony to build its reputation again?
