Update: Sony is acquiring a 1.4% stake in Epic, which means the deal values Epic Games at $17.86 billion
Tencent, China's largest video game publisher, invested $330 million to acquire a 40 percent stake in Epic Games back in 2012. Tencent's large investment helped Epic reinvent itself as an industry powerhouse, supporting the creation of Epic's Unreal Engine 4 game development suite and the eventual launch of "Fortnite."Oct 9, 2019I know fortnight was a huge success and they acquired a couple of studios but this seems like an overvaluation. sony got screwed.
Epic is probably going to grow again soon. After seeing how they made The Mandalorian, I know why they made that purchase. Even 1% will be rewarding.Unreal is going to take over so many things.
Sony has announced that it's going to start selling a series of modular displays that can be used to create digital movie sets (via The Hollywood Reporter). If this kind of technology seems familiar, it may be because Industrial Light & Magic and Epic Games built similar sets to help create The Mandalorian.
They displays are part of Sony's Crystal LED line, which are modular panels that use MicroLEDs, and were previously marketed as being used for signage. The screen tech and modularity means that you can make enormous displays using a bunch of panels connected to a controller. That's useful if you're trying to create a virtual set out of displays.
