BLOG - Here we have excerpts from the very cordial correspondence between EA CEO John Riccitiello and Take-Two chair Strauss Zelnick regarding how EA wants to gobble up the work-in-progress Take-Two.
ImageThe actual letters are quite long-winded, so here's our own summary of the correspondence:
eb. 6, 2008
Congratulations on your recent announcement about the release date for Grand Theft Auto IV. I am sure it must feel great to have this important title locked and ready.
[PS: I'm going to try to buy your company at a price that is below what you think is fair.]
Chief Executive Officer

Thank you for your letter of February 6, 2008.
No way in hell. But again, thank you, kind sir. And I loved Madden 08.
