As far as excruciating loyalty to Sony, cult fanatacism, and creative output go, few companies could honestly go toe-to-toe with Nippon Ichi and Atlus. Both companies already rival each other in many ways. Not only did the two work together on Growlanser, but each company had arguably some of their greatest success with their joint-release of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. Both companies have already expressed interest in joining PSABR, so wouldn't it be nice to give Atlus a chance at vengeance and Nippon Ichi a chance to finally catch in some much-deserved limelight?
A thought, but an interesting one, no?
