Game industry news can be a bit depressing lately, with layoffs and shutdowns happening all over the world. Sony Online Entertainment's acquisition of Octopi is a refreshing change of pace. Octopi is known for their online collectible strategy game PoxNora
. Under Sony Online Entertainment, they will operate as SOE Tucson.
While this news doesn't directly affect PS3 owners, SOE is one of the biggest supporters of PS3 -- the studios have already released a variety of PlayStation Network games, and are currently working on The Agency
and DC Universe Online
. We doubt it'll be long until SOE Tucson works on a PS3 game of their own.
