Wow, it's like the 80's all over again.
Atari should take them up on their offer.
I would like the keep the old Atari namesake alive at least for another few decades.

I wish Nintendo would just buy them out.

I thought infogrames is the parent company of Atari already....
can some one hook me up some info?

I'm really not sure about the politics in all of this, but by owning them completely they can basically tell them what to develop I assume.
