Sony set to buy Bungie for $3.6 billion

Something must be in the air.

Hot on the heels of news that Microsoft reached a deal to acquire Activision Blizzard, Sony revealed today that they are buying Bungie.

The creators of the Halo and Destiny franchises will be allowed to retain creative freedoms.

Sony has committed to keeping the studio's games multiplatform.

It seems that, in practicality, very little will change.

Even so, the last thing the AAA industry needs is massive leaps towards monopolization.

But hey! Destiny movie anyone?
