The Economic Times is reporting that an Indian-base company, Zapak Digital, is poised to buy Sony Online Entertainment to the tune of $300 million dollars. SOE has been on the ‘block’ for a few weeks now, and Zapak Digital, which is planning to enter the Chinese gaming market next year, believes this is good for their goals. The deal is set to be finalized within the next few days.
Is this really a good thing for Zapak Digital? Don’t get me wrong, SOE has alot of resources at their disposal and Zapak would own it all, but their current IPs are not all that great.
