I answered all your replies below with diangle texts.
You think PS5 will generate another 40m sales to match that of GTAV's Multiplat sales? You have incredibly high hopes there.
No,i think GTA6 could sell around 50-60million on PS5 if exlcusives
Sure for how long will that last? Stocks change all the time and except the fact they now have to make just as much money while being limited to 1 platform.
SONY will pay them 40% premium on cash for the full share,after that current Take-Two Shareholders will not own any shares so they don't have to worry about stock price.They will have the money in hand.This is a cash deal
EVERYTHING! The fact that the competition is growing which will increase Take-Twos revenue even further.
Take-Two's revenue won't increase much further as there is a limit of around 100-150million consoles.These console sales can be on 1 platform or divided between 2 platforms but not grow much
Nintendo Switch is another platform with high potential of future Take-Two games which = more money.
really?do you even follow gaming?
tell me how no Red Dead or GTA on Nintendo Switch translates into high potential and more money for Take-Two
Xbox is behind in console sales this gen, however XB2 isn't out so yet sooo.. umm what was the point here? Pretty sure this decision is something for next gen not this gen.
it is cause,GTA like Final Fantasy and Metal Gear is a more Playstation centric game which sells more on Playstation platforms so even if XBOX TWO sells well,Take-Two sales will be low and with Sony's stronger brand name and dominating position and already built up 1st party Branded games,XBOX TWO's sales will be lower compared to PS5
Take-Two already make bucket loads of money without having to share it with a mother company. If Sony buy them than Take-Two earn less.
Once Take-Two is bought by Sony,Take-Two will earn the same
Erm that doesn't mean Sony should throw away basically half there cash for 1 company. MS have over $100b in cash,doesn't mean they just throw it away at 1 company who makes 1 game every 5 years.
XBOX is Microsoft's minor business and they have spent $20billion on XBOX and still lag behind,thats why Microsoft has comparatively stopped spending so much money on XBOX compared to before.Don't forget what Microsoft paid for Final Fantasy 13 and GTA4 part exclusives,even then Microsoft came behind Sony last gen
Playstation is Sony's largest business,it is essential for their survival and profitability,thats why they need this
While the other games sell no where near as much.
Red Dead 2 will easily sell upward of 40-50million copies,it has already sold 20million
What if Take-Two falls apart? You know how much damage that would do to Sony if they get brought out and simply fail.. That's Sony's life blood being spent on 1 brand that has a lot riding on there shoulders.
that's always a risk everybody takes in everything.
what if tomorrow there is an earthquake,there is always risk
Also 5 to 10 years is a hell of a long time. Gaming in 5 to 10 years might not even be the same.
things just don't change like that,you would know it if you would follow gaming industry more closely or life in general
also even if things change,SONY would just become a publisher and still sell loads of software and make money
I am sure Take-Two want all there profits to go to Sony (Sarcasm).
well that's what happens when acquisitions happen,i don't think you are aware of acquisition or business ownership
Again, what's in it for Take-Two?
Loads of Moneyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
They make heaps of money without being owned by Sony.
this i agree and its the reason sony would profit from this deal
What's better is they don't have to share it with Sony,
if this deal went through,Take-Two won't be sharing anything with SONY,everything will go to SONY 100%
What's in it for Take-Two?
What if the next Xbox and Nintendo console blows the competition apart?
again things just don't happen just out of the blue,things build up and have to made like Sony's hard work though the PS3 years to make strong 1st party exclusives lineup.
Sony's success with PS4 is no luck,its close to 20years of hard work by SONY.
so stop asking stupid what if questions,you would know better if you followed gaming more closely
That's a lot of revenue lost. If Sony buy Take-Two than they better hope MS don't make another 360 competitor and Nintendo don't have another Wii.
360 was a success because of SONY's mistakes not because of MS mostly and Wii was no competition mainly to PS360
Take-Two don't need a mother company leeching off there profits they make.
again SONY won't be leaching off Take-Two's profits
infact Take-Two as a publisher is leeching off Rockstar and 2K's profits
They would want to sell and better GTAV's 90m units sold, and I am sure the share holders and suits at Take-Two want to aim higher not go backwards.
once Take-TWO is owned by SONY,Take-Two won't have any shareholders and Suits.
You don't know what Sony or any companies intentions are once they own something. Especially when a company spends almost half there bank balance on them, I am sure they would want to stick there noses in.
really?they are a business,their intention is profit like all other businesses and you can only do that by producing good quality products
Take-Two owns Rockstar,i'm sure they stick their noses in too
