Rumour suggests publisher is keen on buying Take-Two
... that means we will be getting a new mediocre GTA each and every year, plus lots of DLC-milking. I'm sure every GTA-gamer would LOVE that(!) NOT! Activision should just keep their greedy sweaty palms to themselfs, instead of buying up great studios and licenses, sucking them dry, before running them into the ground.
... but we can still fear it :)
I dunno, Two Two being bought out has been on the cards for a while. The revenue they earn from Call of Duty is bound to go somewhere.
Go die Bobby -Everyone
No please, just no! Activision just stop buying every (formerly) good developer, PLEASE! We don't like you!
Call of Grand Theft Auto Duty: San Andreas Warfare 3.... Nope wont happen. That's like Apple selling the iphone to Microsoft. LA Noire is gonna bring innovation to gaming with it's detective aspect. GTA is forever. RDR is also a hit plus R* has the nack to make great new IP's
As big as Take-Two is, Activision is bigger. They can make this happen if they want to. But I fear for the industry if it does.
I wish Sony would buy Take Two. Man, I'd kill for a PS3 exclusive GTA 5, set it San Andreas again, but with a map 5 times larger and much better graphics than GTA 4.
. The day is coming very soon when consoles will be a thing of the past. The only thing that will exist is the games and the companies that publish them. This is and would be a very big/smart move by Activision. EA had the same idea but failed because GTA was done and there was no way Take Two was going to sell it BEFORE it launched...the timing was all wrong. It's different right now and it sounds like Activision is serious about it. It's like sports...when you see a team making cap room, you can bet a big deal is in the works. My question is...where the heck is the multi-BILLION dollar M$ while all this is going on??? They really need to buy Activision and Take 2 and/or EA. Gaming will very soon be an icon on a menu on your TV/monitor. If you want Halo, Forza click M$ logo...COD click the Activision logo...Madden, click EA...etc,etc...if you don't think so, your not paying attention...Activision is seeing the obvious trends and they want to dominate. Expect them to bid hard on ALL EA's sports licences for this exact reason.
The reason it won't happen is because MS and Sony are both Manufactures and Publishers, they make money on both ends, As Much money as CoD:BO made, I'm pretty sure MS made more money for themselves with Halo:Reach, Just like Sony made more Money on UC:2 then with black Ops. Don't be so quick to discount the interest of other companies involved when money is the key interest. I'm pretty sure neither Sony nor MS are willing to give up that piece of the pie they get from being able to use their product to make money. MS has X360 with their monthly/yearly XBL subscription. Sony has PS3, PSP, Blu-Ray and now PSN+. Both these companies are in no rush to let go of these products.
Oh my God no please no! :( stupid Activision...ruining the gaming fucking bastards! But yea...no reason to panic.Knowing R* games,their hardheaded attitude and bringing gaming perfections to us gamers all they would do is issue a official statement in these lines:"Thank you but we are not interested...and oh yea,fuck you Kottick"
Well im not buying GTA anymore =/
Rockstar only have a deal with take2 until 2012 anyway
if they didn't wanna be bought out by EA before i don't see why now would be any different take two is owned by uh zenimax right? zenimax has actually been buying quite a few devs lately then all of a sudden they would just sell everything to activison? i don't think so
They better not. I don't want Activision Milking GTA and running it into the ground like they have with every other game. Activision should just stick to milking COD.
Call of Duty: Grand Theft AK47 I like it
Grand Theft Auto: Modern Warfare Lol should be interesting. We'll see what happens though.
Yearly GTA games full of bugs and 20 dollar half asses dlc? Sounds fun
Anual Red Dead and GTA with sht graphis like all Activision games? No thanks
they blocked ea and they will block activision. their artistic integrity is not to be messed with!
Becuase GTA isn't already milked. At least LA Noire looks like a breath of fresh air from Rockstar.
gta isn't really that milked to be honest. every gta game manages to feel different from each other, at least from the theme point of view. and if they really wanted it, they would have come out with gta 5 right now, and that's a game the whole world wants regardless of the gta 4 hate. show's their integrity in pushing boundaries. i have a lot of respect for rockstar games.
Strange I found GTAIV bland and boring, despite the new functions. I don't think its good enough giving players a sandbox game and saying go nuts. Thats why I'm looking forward to LA. A game where there is structure a roll for the players to fill. I think it will definatly improve on the sandbox game, which to me began to feel 'meh' after vice city.
How Is Gta Milked, The Company Even Said 4 Year Intervals Between Each Gta Plus Every Gta Is Different, New City, Characters, Cars, Physics, Graphics, Features
F U activition, stay away from my GTA
No. Please, for the love of God, no. It's not just GTA, T2 owns the rights to several other series.
this is why you idiots need to stop praising and buying crap od duty every gosh dang year. You can buy the game if u want but when u talk about it on the internets the only thing that should come out your mouth is cod sucks. You guys are giving activision to much power and money and ya need to stop you mindless sheep.
I agreed half of the people here has owned one or two COD games in the past. Sad thing here is, even those outside of these forums dont know and dont care until a certain franchise is no longer in existance. Millions of WoW subscribers, and millions of COD dlcs being sold monthly. COD alone has generated these people billions of dollars and the sad thing is people keep buying into the marketing hype every year. Hopefully this doesnt happen. I mean they already got COD, WoW and Bungie on a 10 year deal and now this? Man....2012 might be real after all.
Yearly GTA, yearly Red Dead, yearly Bioshock, yearly Midnight Club, no thanks Activision. Stay away!!!
i hope not...rockstar has been my top developer for years...if greedyvision buy them....R.I.P.
GTA is the best series of Open World Games, please don't let Act fuck that up
SONY should buy them.
No, that would be even worse...
Why? . Because SONY runs their studios so poorly? LOL
Because Sony are a platform holder, duh.
Noooooooooooooooo fffuuuuuuuuuuuu Activision. EA, Ubisoft or any fucking one but not Activision.
this is what is have to say
if they did buy out take two, you can say goodbye to AGENT being exclusive.
I remember the times, when activision logo made me smile. You know, the times, when "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" meant something... *sigh*
They do great by themselves no need to be umbrellaed by craptivion the game killer
i really don't care who buys T2,long as the hit software continues
This will not happen. Why because Take Two has been doing better recently. EA had a better chance of getting TT but that did not happen & with many of TT's games selling really well they will not sell the company.
No one should buy Take2. Leave Take2 alone D:<
Screw up so many titles that you have to buy new ones to screw up from other publishers... We need to protest outside Activision HQ like the Egyptians until Kotick resigns if this happens.
Activison sucks! they are soooooo under 9000 its not even funny. this will be my reaction if this happens (vagetas reaction) 0:11
