Something is going on at Nexon HQ from news
or Warner Bros Interactive
Well, pros are just what the company has done well, and what it does well in, which may not necessarily game management or other areas.
If a business has no pros, they wouldn't be operating for long. Yet, they do continue to operate. So there has to be enough that they do to keep them going.
A failing business is something like Sears, who really are doing nothing right.
That was presumably because they breached USAnian anti-trust laws. In Nexon's case, the question would be whether the buyer would be breaching any of South Korea's anti-trust laws, if any exist.
Oh they exist in some form.
or bamco, they will somehow manage to turn mabinogi in a console game and poorly port it to pc
Guys, everyone wants in. Article Mention Article referenced
"Netmarble announced its plans to purchase Nexon in January, starting a consortium of companies to this end."
*Crosses fingers* If they win, we all win. Seriously, these guys listen, and they listen HARD.
If we say no more gachapons, we get no gachapons. If we say standard item sales, we get standard item sales.
Oh no, not Amazon!
Profitable, but can they even code?
Seriously, this matters to completely trash the now illegal gachapons.
Unless they rent out the video game production/development rights to someone else.
I stand corrected.
Turn Nexon NA HQ into another 3PL shipping point.
They can code, bro.
"Crucible is a third-person, last one standing game of trust and betrayal. Each match pits human and alien competitors with unique weapons and abilities against one another on a lush, alien world. Players make and break alliances on the fly. In Crucible it takes a mix of combat skill, strategic planning, and social finesse to survive." (In Development)
They know Twitch too, so money money money!
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is on sale in Origin for $10. ($9.99, but everyone rounds for tax.)
I have reason to believe EA isn't our knight in Ruairi armor.
It's a sim standing in one place as it wonders what it should be doing with that giant, creepy grin.
Tencent, Kakao among shortlisted bidders for South Korean gaming firm Nexon: Korea Economic Daily
SEOUL (Reuters) - Chinese tech giant Tencent and South Korea’s biggest chat operator Kakao Corp are among five bidders shortlisted to buy South Korean gaming firm Nexon, the Korea Economic Daily newspaper reported on Monday.
The newspaper said NXC Corp, the holding firm which controls Nexon, also had shortlisted private equity firms Bain Capital and MBK Partners, as well as an unidentified private equity firm.
South Korean publisher Netmarble Corp was not offered to join the preliminary bidding, but formed a consortium with MBK Partners to bid for Nexon, according to the report which cited investment banking sources.
The deal could worth as much as 15 trillion won ($13.3 billion) and the formal bid process was set to take place in early April, it added.
Nexon founder Kim Jung-ju has been exploring a sale of a 98.64 percent stake in NXC Corp that is held by him and related parties including his wife.
MBK Partners declined to comment on the report while Tencent, Kakao, Netmarble and Bain Capital were not immediately available for comment.

Pft, Amazon can literally make profits off anything these days.
Yeah, I know. I posted a response to my own comment above. Twice, now.
But yes, Nexon has been holding onto a potential that they refused to tap into for over eleven years.
Mabinogi has become a well in which appears dried up, and crusty.
The gachapon model is old, and now officially illegal. (Confirmed by Belgium.)
There are so many problems in Nexon games that Amazon can profit off not only purchasing, but forwarding to hired professionals to fix.
There's something people like to refer to as "The 2019 Clap," and if Amazon is publicized in fixing these Loot Box problems, they most definitely will profit. (Off publicity alone, things will spread like wildfire nostalgia.)
If Amazon has to bid away a few twenty billion dollars to get Nexon, it's probably a drop in the bucket at this point.
Twitch partnership will only make things easier to get Mabinogi back on the radar if they decide to officially refurbish it, and announce the steps they're taking on test servers.
Think of this like Amazon seeing Nintendo potential in Nexon KR, not knowing how much more money they'll be sinking into it.
It'll cause problems for sure, but Mabinogi remains a unique MMORPG.
Everyone wants that kinda of game to make cash, so they'll make it work. (Fifty billion dollars later, and all Nexon problems are fixed.)
Shovel, meet grave.
