Looks like Bungie was just a small piece of their Western-developer push.

Hope it stays that way. The less attention Bungie gets from them, the better off they will be, I think. You're not independent when somebody else owns you-- even part of you.

Then nobody is independent…

Make a console game? Sony or MS could refuse cert and now you can’t sell.
Make a mobile game? Apple could pull it from the store.
Make a PC game? You rely Microsoft APIs and windows software.

Unless you control literally everything then someone owns a piece of you in a sense.
