When rumors started that Sony was sitting on a piece of acquisition news that wasn't Kojima Productions, all eyes were immediately on Square Enix.
As it turns out, people's hunches were right all along.
Apparently, Square Enix is in a good position right now for a Sony buyout.
Sources claim that Square Enix's recent fire sale had a lot to do with the company's attempt to streamline itself to make an acquisition easier.
For what it's worth, being acquired by Sony makes a lot of sense for Square Enix
If the rumored acquisition came true, Sony would have exclusivity over Square Enix's franchises, which gives the console a lot of fodder against Microsoft in the still-ongoing console wars.
