Looks like Sony may have let the cat out of the bag too soon in announcing some big acquisitions to their PlayStation Studios front, as PlayStation accidentally reveals getting Bluepoint Games while tweeting about the Housemarque acquisition.
As revealed by Nibellion, PlayStation Japan uploaded a number of images to their Twitter page to welcome Housemarque to their PlayStation family — but they also added an image that accidentally reveals them welcoming Bluepoint Games as well.

Soon after, the images were quickly taken down, but Tweetdeck still has the evidence and trail of the posts and it has quickly gone viral through the internet.
