#WOW – Sony invests for the future by becoming a minority stakeholder in Epic, makers of the Unreal Engine. This is a very, VERY interesting strategic move by Sony and a profitable one for Epic.

Sony has acquired a minority stake in Epic thanks to a $250 million investment and promises to work closely with Epic on future game and entertainment projects.
