Forums - Sony Discussion - RUMOR: Sony in discussions to aquire Take-Two Interactive

this would be a interesting move...

Take-Two Interactive Software TTWO stock climbed 4.7% on rumors that Sony CorpSNE“is in advanced board level discussions to acquire Take-Two Interactive in a mostly cash deal,” that would value the company at $130 share, according to Joel Kulina, head of technology and media trading at Wedbush Securities.

Holy Christ if true! That would be a massive get.



                                                                                                                                            

No way.



That includes Rockstar, right? Damn this is huge if true. Rumored big deals like this always make me skeptical of it's validity



Take-Two's market cap is over 10 billion dollars. How could Sony even afford this?

These talks need to fall through. This would be truly awful for Xbox and PC gamers, losing future GTA, Red Dead, Borderlands, Bioshock, NBA 2K, etc. releases.

Could be bad news for Sony fans as well, as this could set a bad precedent that would lead to Microsoft and Google (who is also trying to break into the gaming market) buying up other big 3rd party publishers like Bethesda, Ubisoft, EA, Activision, Square Enix, Capcom, etc. in order to try and compete against Sony. 3rd party multiplats could disappear almost entirely if this happens. We need to be moving toward a future with less exclusives honestly, not more exclusives.



This would be insane if true and next gen will be nuts for Sony!

Edit: Again, if true, could MS intervene and purchase Take-Two before Sony can?  Seeing as how MS been buying all these devs.

I'll say the same thing I said after Microsoft acquired Ninja Theory — as long as the games don't suffer (and they won't, being exclusives), I'm all for it.



                                                                                                                                            

Imagine a game with "sony interactive entertainment presents" and then rockstar games logo appearing on screen.
Gives me chills just thinking about it.

But then again , i don't see this being true.
If it is , then i would be pleasently surprised.



Sounds insanely false.
