I know you seem really passionate about this move, but its not as good as it sounds in reality.
i'm not passionate,just saying it could be a good deal
1st - Sony already make a fortune with Take-Two as it is with the giant sales on PS platforms.. so the money isn't that much greater than if they went out brought them which would be considered a lot of money for Sony to spend as a corporation. Not only do you choke hold the games from Take-Two which means Take-Two sell less units overall, it means the profits wont be as high as they are now.
Sony's profits will be more as they would sell more consoles and more software
Look at MS and the studios they brought, they didn't just go out and buy the biggest studios in the world at there very best, they brought what would have been good prices and talent for the money. So the companies under them can gain value and grow over the course of being successful which will increase MS stocks. Take-Two is already extremely successful so there value as a company wont go up as much, but they can drop extremely low if mistakes happen or they fall apart.
if XBOX ONE sold as well as PS4,they would be doing the same deal
hell they paid big for GTA4 exclusivity deal and Final Fantasy and Metal Gear
3rd - Its a giant slap in the face to the industry and gamers alike who play there games, we are not talking about 1 or 2 million gamers missing out here, we are talking about the likes of 40m+ GTA fans missing out due to this idea. That's not a good image to have. And definitely not a good financial one either. We know Sony well enough now that anything they own will be locked, they wont share it with others, maybe PC.. big maybe.. Unless Sony do what MS do with Minecraft and make the big games multiplat so they can make the most amount of profit to earn back there spending's. But its Sony, I highly doubt they would.
SONY would not do what MS did with Microsoft.Hell if Minecraft wouldn't have been released on PS4 and PC before MS acquired it,it wouldn't have been on PS4
And MS's move with Minecraft on PS4 and Cross Platform is not because of its kindness but because it is losing the console battle
And,Slap in the face of gamers doesn't matter.Corporations and Businesses don't run on kindness but you aggressive Business strategy and Profits GTA6 would still sell 50-60million copies easily and rest will be compensated by SONY's higher hardware and software sales
4th - You don't make these big purchases on the brim of a new generation especially when the competition is going to be fierce.
thats exactly what you do with competition being fierce,you're talking completely opposite
Don't expect Xbox to fall over the starter line next gen
i don't expect it but don't expect PS4 or Wii's numbers either straightaway
and don't expect Nintendo to make another WiiU mistake.
Nintendo make a WiiU mistake or not,they are not in direct competition with PlayStation or XBOX
but if the next Xbox outsells the next Playstation console or even if its on Par or close than Take-Two already lost in the deal because the more customers the industry has = more sales potential they could have earned overall, but not if you are tied to one or two platforms.
if TAKE-TWO is part of SONY,they don't lose anything,they will not lose any sales as they will already be part of another company.You really don't understand transfer of ownership and risk.
Take-Two will cease to exist if they are acquired by SONY so stop talking about Take-Two losing this or that
