Who's rumored to be involved in the buyout?

Clayman2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

Activision? Hopefully not..

No i doubt Take Two will accept their offer even if it's high,, their Vision are way Difference.

Don't count out MS! Keep in mind they did buy a has been in Rare for 350 million!

Also, their efforts to try to have their own GTA type game in Crackdown has pretty much failed.

I guarantee they are at least considering it!

It's probably more realistic that EA or Acti will try to buy in though.

I would say Sony should try to buy, but the recent outage and several other factors make me wonder if they are in a position to make such a purchase.

What ever happened to Rare they used to make some of my favorite games like Goldeneye 007 and Killer Instinct.
Then M$ bought them and they disappeared.

i doubt sony is dropping half a billion to buy take two
they never said how much they bought media molecule

like people have this thought that sony can spend there entire worth to buy another company

Ultraplayerxp2550d ago

Didn't they drop that much when they bought MM? I forgot but I think it was in the 250-500 Mil range. Anyone wanna clarify?

Grip2550d ago (Edited 2550d ago )

lol half billion ? u talk about Take Two! their price much higher then that. we talk about Rockstar and 2K we talk about GTA, RDR, BioShock, 2K Sports, Mafia, bully etc..... i would say 1 billion and above
Edit: that's why i wrote etc..

take two

stocks dropped by almost 50 percent from 2008-2009

from then 25 dolalrs to now 14 dollars

they have

2,048,650 shares on the market

take two revenue in 2009 was close to 1 billion and even with that they still werent able to enter profitability

Ea's offer in 2007 was 2 billion which i think is a lie since EA is worth worth 3 biliion but as i said this is before take twos stock plumeted

then you gotta take into account that we are talking about a video game company which is risky since they make there money buy selling video games have a good year and make good revenue have a bad year make no revenue its the MAIN REASON why sony is not spening 1 billion to pick up take two is a stupid proposition
