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

I really hope not. It's one thing to buy a smaller studio and/or someone in financial trouble(Ninja Theory, Obsidian). It's another to buy someone as big as EA, Take Two, Capcom, etc. I hope no company goes that route.

Seems like the rumor started from an incorrect quote from a primary investors (still digging) but it seems like it was false as I thought.

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

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

Nah.

Very interesting. If true, this would be an absolutely incredible statement from Sony. This would be a PS2 era type move if true. Bioshock, Borderlands, Grand Theft Auto, NBA 2K, and Red Dead, among others, exclusive to PlayStation Hardware and PlayStation Now would drive the steak in their market leadership deep into the ground.

If this turns out true, color me extremely impressed with Sony.

Weren't you saying just yesterday that they were doomed because they weren't adapting your Playstation OS across all devices model you think they need to survive? And that exclusive games alone won't save them from a future of games being streamed to people, and now you're impressed with their acquisitions of a third party that would bolster their first party lineup?

Shouldn't you be annoyed that they're spending their capital acquiring game studios instead of bolstering their game services? You can't seem to make up your mind.



I believe any company can be up for sale for the right price. The crazy thing about a rumor like this is that, I am sure all these companies probably get bids here and there to see if they are up for sale. This could easily be someone told Sony they would consider selling if they bought them for 6 times their market cap or something along those lines. At the end of the day, its just another wild rumor with no meat behind it then one analyst throwing stuff at the wall.

Share your research please.



..meh putting this in the same bin as the rumor of MS buying EA and Apple buying Nintendo



Does Sony even have enough money to absorb fucking T2? This is massive if true, but I don't know if is actually possible without bankrupting the company...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Can you imagine GTA6 and RDR3 exclusive to PS5 ? :D

As much as I want this to happen, I don't see it happening unless Sony is planning to release those games as multiplats. Anyway, this looks fake to me.
