If any big gaming publisher like EA or Ubisoft or even Sony or MS know whats good for them, BUY FREE RAD!

I personally think that the company that NEEDS a developer like FRD is Nintendo, but it would be great to see some competition for these great devs.

Liberate them from this mess! Forgive them for haze! And buy this developer!

FREE Free Radical!

Unfortunately with Microsoft and Sony hurting a lot right now, I doubt they're in any position to be buying up companies.

It's always possible Nintendo will buy them though..

True I don't see MS buying a new studio when it has already closed down many of it's internal studios. And same with Sony, they've cut 8000 jobs so it doesn't make sense for either of them to buy FRD.

Free Radical comprised of former Rare people? If that's the case maybe Nintendo can pick them up..but on second thought, why would Nintendo be bothered with cleaning up a company who went belly up with a HD flop?
