This sounds too crazy to be true. Like those rumors of Microsoft buying ea and Nintendo buying Capcom

Maybe I'm letting this rumor affect me too much . I guess it can be as fake as those other rumors too. :(

Which would make the deal largely pointless. So, no, I wouldn't expect that at all.

They would Because the uproar from taketwo will have Microsoft thinking twice .Satya nadella doesn't wanna get embarassed that Sony just made a big move so satya nadella green lights microsoft to buy big 

Xbox is such a small division of Microsoft. I highly doubt it would bother him that much as long as the Xbox division can still bring profits. 

Microsoft invest in Xbox, but the money it would take to buy EA, I doubt they'd allow such a huge investment, especially as they already got quite a lot of money for the Minecraft purchase which I doubt they've seen a full return on yet. 

You are thinking way to small.  If MS decided to purchase EA it would not just be for the Xbox division.  MS is already in a transition to move gamepass and their other online gaming services to everything they can get it on.  Purchasing EA or any other big time publisher would be an investment for all of their products.  From Azure to PC, to Xbox and cloud services.  Ultimately MS is looking to own the gaming space as much as possible because its another area for huge profit margins if you can lock all type of consumers to one platform.



Go home Sony, you're drunk

Poked around a bit.

Joel Kulina, head of technology and media trading at Wedbush Securities (a privately held financial services and investment firm), referenced the rumor about the potential takeover.

Still, where did he get that rumor from..?

He is head of an investment firm. I'm sure investment firms get the scoop on rumors like this all the time because they have to; how do they know what to invest in without having knowledge on what they're investing in. The bigger question is why T2 would agree to this? How does this benefit them?

Planning for the future when it's all online streaming.

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

With how big GTA and RDR have been...I'd say this is about the largest possible 'get' on the market outside of Nintendo, Microsoft, Activision, or EA.
