SQUARE ENIX TO BUY EIDOS INTERACTIVE
Copyright 2009 www.tombraiderchronicles.com

[ February 12th 2009 ]

Japanese video-game maker Square Enix Holdings has agreed in principle to buy Eidos Interactive for $121 million. A statement released by the company confirms both Eidos and Square have agreed a deal, subject to shareholder approval.

"The SQEX Directors and the Eidos Directors are pleased to announce that they have reached agreement on the terms of a recommended Offer under which SQEX, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Square Enix, will acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Eidos. The Offer is to be effected by means of a scheme of arrangement under the Companies Act 2006.

"Square Enix believe that the acquisition of Eidos represents a highly attractive opportunity for the Square Enix Group to create further value for the Square Enix Group's shareholders. "

這個 Eidos 我比較不熟,上網查了一下公司網站:http://www.eidos.com/
原來大名頂頂的蘿拉就是他們最主要的產品啊!
其實這一星期來,Square Enix已經股價直直落啦!
又傳出勇者鬥惡龍9會延至7月發售,可真是禍不單行啊
不知道明天(星期五)股價上,股民會給予祝福嗎??

不過我有試玩過 Xbox360 上 蘿拉的最新作:

Tomb Raider Underworld

 

遊戲的品質、貼圖的光影都很好啊,
可能SQEX想要藉此取得一些動作遊戲、射擊遊戲開發的人才與
專利技術、3D引擎吧;

(當然也許英宅們的消費實力,也是一個因素吧)
畢竟這個世代的主要遊戲商,扣掉了任天堂,
整體日本廠商的市佔率已經不是從前那樣的獨霸了。

舉例來說,Capcom 的快打旋風4對於我個世代的玩家 25歲以上的,
或許才有吸引力吧!
要純比3D貼圖的話,沒有辦法與很多大作相比啊!

當然要說到技術力的話,Capcom已經是日廠中排名前幾名的國際級的競爭力了吧!
好在SF4只要打出「懷舊」+「創新」的雙軌制,我想應該還是有不錯的銷售成績吧!

(我也去敗了一片 XD)

但是SF4要像戰爭機器2那樣子的銷售佳績,可能有一點難!
畢竟2D格鬥遊戲的全盛期似乎已經過了,現在的市場特性與從前日本廠商在TV Game獨強,已是不可同日而語了啊!

SQEX加油吧!
JPRG大廠的銷售數字與佔有率,是我研究產業很重要的資料啊!!!!!!

這篇文章打完時,又看到一篇報導,說明了SQEX的遊戲真的在西方不吃香(Eidos說的)

Eidos deal is good for Square Enix, says Pachter

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/eidos-deal-is-good-for-square-enix-says-pachter

Wedbush senior analyst Michael Pachter has told GamesIndustry.bizthat he thinks the bid to acquire Eidos for GBP 83.4 million is a good one for Square Enix, and the UK publisher's franchises will play a key role in the overall strategy moving forwards.

"Square Enix doesn't really have a large Western presence, with blockbusters in the Final Fantasy series, Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest, and Star Ocean, but not many 'Western-style' games," he said. "A combination with Eidos gives them a large number of Western-style franchises, with Tomb Raider, Hitman, Championship Manager, potentially Deus Ex.

"The total cost is relatively small, essentially the cost of buying a middle of the road developer, so I would say it's a good deal for Square Enix. My view is that they are buying the company for the existing franchises, so I wouldn't expect to see any of them killed off."

"Broader is better, in my view, so a combination should make Square Enix stronger," he added.

The deal has also been popular with investors, with Eidos' share price jumping 127 per cent throughout today to bridge the gap between yesterday's level and the Square Enix bid, and though it's yet to be approved by shareholders, Pachter doesn't see any real reason why it should be blocked.

"It's hard to know what the company is worth, but shareholders are being offered a premium to the most recent stock price, so most will probably believe that the deal is fair," he said.

The bid was officially lodged on January 14 and could bring to an end a long period of uncertainty for the Tomb Raider publisher, going all the way back to September 2007.
