Electronic Arts will not take no for an answer from Take-Two and have now extended their offer to May 16th, even after being turned down by Take-Two stockholders once.
to the guys at Take Two Your game is going to rule 2008! Let EA counter offer after that beast is making the big money!
it's almost like EA is scared of them for some reason I don't understand why all these people think that Take Two should take the offer just for the money...it's about more than just the money. It's about the games and the ability to produce these games, and of course making money off of them...giving all of that up for $2 billion is a rip off b/c EA can easily make that back with all the games they acquire from Take Two/2K/2K Sports/Rockstar....that is a lot of quality they will eat up right there.
Yeah EA is scared. They know that release date is creeping closer and closer and when it drops they are going to have to increase their price by at least a third maybe even more.
I doubt GTA sales won't slow down until then as more and more people flock to the next gen consoles finally. Then you got the downloadable content that'll create another small surge in sales and all this around the same time Midnight Club LA is released which looks to be the best arcade racing game of the year. The announcement of GTA V as an MMO would be the nail in the coffin to any offer EA can make.
props to take two. must be so good for them knowing EA want them soo bad. just imagine EA begging you to sell.
uh..EA sucks? Seriously, this is getting old. EA go to hell!
they make better sports games than you & so you can make GTA 2009 (with the revolutionary targeting system that changes color when aimed at an enemy). After that would be GTA 2010 (with the new carjacking system where you can be polite & ask people to get out instead of forcing them).
Word plus EA would own all good sports titles(minus MLB the show 08) and this would help them launch their console
& Antonio should come play for your World Champion New York Football Giants. = }
...for Take Two so they can continue to stick to their guns. EA is the high school jock who graduated over 6 years ago, is now a bald fat dropout BUT trying their hardest to date this years prom queen (Take Two). No means no!
The first thing that I think of is the DL content that the 360 is suppose to get. The quality may lack if EA buys them out and the ship jumping begins. just a thought......
theres only 2 things in EA that i like... Jade Raymond... and Criterion the rest of EA can $uc|< my [email protected]$ South park the movie style
Jade Raymond works at UBISOFT.
that pic is halarious
i cracked up when i saw that
Considering the value of each stock will obviously rise in value after GTA4's release, EA's $26 a share will sound like a joke.
plus the income from gta4, its going to be a huge pay day for the company that was in financial troubles making the game. this game cost r* and take two alot but theres going to be HUGE returns
They were sellouts to Microsh1t for 50 million dollars, but won't accept the much better EA (not that they're good, but compared to Microshaft) 2 billion dollar offer... as if they didn't need it. GTA4 will only put them on life support, EA would at least make it a level field by returning Microcrap their dirty money and offering downloadable content on BOTH consoles, which would make it a level playing field. I do hope this transaction becomes a reality... and it probably will. All the DLC bullsh1t that Xtards have been touting will have been for nothing. Microsoft will have to rely on THEIR OWN MERITS, i.e. with their own research and development instead of doing mergers and acquisitions, an action which doesn't even deserve a little bit of respect in the gaming community and industry. If you're worried that EA will make things worse, EA does make a few great games here and there and their reforming themselves. For a reason they're on top, and it's not just money and Winblows, but it's also talent, get over it, fanboys.
ea getting take two is not a good thing u retard
... EA apparently doesnt even know the meaning of the word 'deadline'. Take Two said 'No! Not now!'. That doesnt mean come back in 3 weeks and try again. I'm glad Take Two is standing it's ground. My heart bleeds when I think of all the crap EA will pull when they have the rights to GTA, and how they can scam us for money in all kinds of ways (paying for musictracks, DLC, extra weapons and car-packs, etc...) I really hope Take Two will remeain independent, so we'll at least have a developer to compete with EA's crap.
I just fear for different consoles exclusives and hope they don't get gimped in the process by EA forcing them to go Multiplat...
just like microsoft wants yahoo
EA give it up. Take Two shareholders will not sell. Only 8% of them accepted your lousy offer. It seems that the shareholders know that they have a potential "EA" of their own on their hands with Take Two.
Of EA trying to make battlefield all nickle and dime dlc they simply disgust me.. and i hope no other company gives into their monopoly plan..
