Would there be anyone left out there to even consider rivaling them? February 27, 2008 at 9:35 am #40321 AnonymousInactive EA really should just buy Montreal, and declare it a republic.

Maybe EA should propose it to Duceppe and Bloc Quebecois just to see what happens! February 28, 2008 at 10:03 am #40342 AnonymousInactive I sincerely hope EA does not buy Take Two. Some things should just stay separate :) March 5, 2008 at 8:49 am #40398 AnonymousInactive This is good: http://eattake2.com/ March 5, 2008 at 10:03 am #40400 AnonymousInactive Class!
