TECH: Sony is buying the studio behind “Destiny” for $3.6 billion.

It’s anoth­er big game stu­dio deal. Sony has announced plans to acquire Bungie, the stu­dio behind hit sci-fi MMO shoot­er Des­tiny, in a deal worth $3.6 billion.

Bungie is posi­tion­ing the acqui­si­tion as the start of a new era for the com­pa­ny – one focused on glob­al media enter­tain­ment, not just games.

One notable point: Bungie will con­tin­ue to expand for mul­ti­ple plat­forms, not just PlaySta­tion, accord­ing to a blog post from CEO Pete Par­sons. This is anoth­er sign of con­sol­i­da­tion in the video game indus­try. In case you for­got, Microsoft announced last month that it was buy­ing Activi­sion Bliz­zard for $69 billion.
