Analyst: Take-Two Turnaround Well Underway; BioShock to PS3, Wii?

Speaking of the much lauded BioShock, Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey said that he thinks Take-Two could bring BioShock to PS3, PS2, Wii and handhelds some time during the company's 2009 fiscal year. In addition, he noted that the next game from 2K Boston/Australia could be released during FY09 as well. Another big contributor, according to Hickey, will be Mafia 2, which "likely will go platinum."

As part of the publisher's turnaround, Hickey believes Take-Two is also going to start raising additional capital in advance of the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV next year. "Additional capital could be used to insure liquidity for working capital needs, fuel potential studio acquisitions, and fund future development projects," he said.

lmao if he simply said Bioshock to PS3, I might have even considered it possible, but he went on to add Wii and handhelds. Part of the reason Bioshock is so good is because of its atmosphere. This guy has no idea what he is talking about.

I saw PS3 and thought "its possible" then saw the Wii and Handhelds and laughed

Yes that sounded like BS! On Wii and PS2? LOL Ok on PS3 but on those 2 must be some kind of Joke. What is next Killzone 2 graphics on Wii and PS2?LOL

The difference between bioshock and killzone 2 is that in killzone 2 there is so much stuff going on that the even if you lowered the resolution the calculations involved would be impossible, but with Bioshock since there maybe 4 to 5 enemies (at the most) on screen at any given time lowing the resolution should allow for bioshock to be ported to the wii or ps2 with no problem. As far as handhelds, course those would be totally different games made for each.

Just clearing that up. L.a. Noire was rumored fiscal 2009. But it could arrive November 2008.
