NEW YORK (AP)
The company behind the hugely popular video game "Grand Theft Auto" says it is not going to jump at a $2 billion buyout offer from Electronic Arts Inc.
Some things are more important than money, respect from your peers, co-workers, other companies etc
If i had spent half my life building a successful glodal company/brand i know personally i wouldnt want to sell it for the Earth.
the guy that leads take-two got his job there last year... hardly a lifetime...
far enough, ill expect take-two to go down in flames then : (
Yes, There is a God
Forget the bible people, this right here is proof he exists! Thank you TT gods!!!
Good for Take Two! IF they are to be bought, at least they will be milking EA for every dime they can get. lol. I feel that this buyout is still inevitable, but here's hoping EA relents.
I think for once the devil(EA) might not be able to take (purchase) this soul (Take-Two).
EA will have to do it the old fashion way. FIDDLE CONTEST!
they should go with 5 billion! so EA bleeds more and stop destroying game industry!
YES I hope this doesnt happen... Please take two do not let this happen. DO NOT KILL YOUR GREAT GAMES PLEASE!
You know, man, EA makes games, too, they don't just own companies.
Here's an idea. Take-Two can let Rockstar break away and become a new company. Then sell what's left of the company to EA for $2 billion. I wonder if EA would want them if Rockstar wasn't part of the deal? No way should they get the GTA franchise for that little.
god i hope this never goes through.
All real gamers are hoping for this.
not to do so
T2 will be OKay, this I've always known. EA's already stated their shareholders wouldn't get a better offer than the $26 a share. So it appears this buyout wont be going anywhere, so long as T2 stands strong. If GTA4 is released and there's still no deal accepted I'm almost positive there never will be one.
Seriously why would T2 even consider this. I know its a lot of money but they could absolutly suck the GTA franchise dry if they wanted to for at least another 10 years. They would stand to make so much more money just making games.
Selfish much Take Two? 2 Billion is a MASSIVE amount, don't be selfish...
its just $2 billion, what will that get u?
