Pachter: EA Take-Two Takeover Unlikely

In his latest note to investors, Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has detailed his reasoning on why it's unlikely, as some have posited, that EA will make a bid for Take-Two, as well as expressed a lack of confidence in management and GTA IV's timely release.

First, he continued, was a matter of corporate culture. Between "open-ended delivery dates, artistic freedom, and incredibly violent games," as well as "several teams... that produce only one game every two years," and "games with sufficient sexual content and violence to receive AO ratings," the combination is "something that would not be tolerated at EA."

I'm sick of this guys predictions. They're always wrong. I don't know whether to laugh or cry

I agree hes a [email protected]$$. I havent even heard this rumor, but if there is any validity to it i hope EA stays out of buying up other companies. I'm already anticipating ubisoft to go to hell after EA aquired a large stake in that company.

There are only two companies that can buy Take TWo and those are Microsoft and Sony.
