    Well, they didn’t buy Eidos, but I think they may have got an even better deal. Bio-ware and Pandemic. Good studios!

    You beat me to it, Damian. I just came on to post it!

    I think that it’s a very good move, but it’s quite disturbing that the only way to survive for developers these days is to either merge with others or be bought out.

    So let me get this straight:

    Bono is on the board of a venture capital fund called Elevation that tried to take over Eidos which made the Tomb Raider games who’s movie had a soundtrack that included the song “Elevation” which was performed by U2 which includes Bono.

    Interesting set of links there.

    I think your looking a little too hard for links there. Besides Eidos didn’t make TR, Core did. Hate it when publishers get developer credit.

    I knew Core made TR but I left out the link for simplicity, Eidos do own Core anyway.

    Bono and U2 have always openly said they’re big fans of Tomb Raider, hence the soundtrack, but I think that wouldn’t be quite enough to explain a bid of many millions of pounds. :P

    Well, technically SCi own us and the Eidos name is just still used :) Although back then, they did.
