Take-Two Open to Acquisition? COO Says 'We're a Great Investment'

Take-Two has been rumored to be an acquisition target for some time now.

I'd like to see Sony buy them up. Imagine a 50GB GTA with a city 5 times larger than San Andreas and more cars and things to do than ever. Take Two as a Sony first party studio would be incredible. However, it would take a HUGE sum of money for Sony to be able to buy them up. Probably upwards of $100 Million.

You know im particularly impressed that take two actually made more non gta games that were extremely good like red dead or la noire. This is a strategy that more publishers/devs should use by diversifying their game catalog instead of creating multiple sequels which dilute your series and sales eventually decrease (guitar hero is a great example).
