      Gamasutra has reported that EA has made a bid for Take Two.

      http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=17596

      And on Gamesindustry.biz you can read about it being rejected, though EA have kept the $2billion offer on the table.

      Will be very very interesting to see how this plays out.

      I bet that offer made them do a double take


      hooray!

      Looks like EA may be after Ubisoft now, if RUMOUR is to be believed

      Didn’t they say they were done buying less than 6 months ago?

      EA really should just buy Montreal, and declare it a republic.

      I mean if they really bought Ubisoft and Take Two? Would there be anyone left out there to even consider rivaling them?

      eidos\sci, but reckon they’d take them pretty cheap also.

      They’d have to buy Activision\VuGames then – that’s who bought Bizarre a wee while ago :)

      Now there’s an idea. Maybe EA should propose it to Duceppe and Bloc Quebecois just to see what happens!

      I sincerely hope EA does not buy Take Two. Some things should just stay separate :)
