I don't think MS can do a hostile takeover, at least based on Japan's laws from what I've heard. So they'd have to make friends with whoever. In which case I don't see this happening so easily.
None of the studios that MS has bough have been by Hostile Takeover. Ninja, Inxile, Obsidian and DoubleFine were all funding games via Kickstarter being bought out was the best thing for them going forward.
