Microsoft Interested in Buying Take-Two ?

Recommended Posts

tiedie

gta=dead if MS buys the company

i didnt read the topic---

 

PC users will be FORCED to buy Vista obviously because it wont work on XP (like Halo 2)

it will be a 360 exclusive for decades (as someone else said)

it just wouldnt be cool

 

but if i had to choose between MS and EA, i pick MS because EA sh*ts out trashy expansion packs like there is no tomorrow

 

GTA:IV

 

few months later----

GTA:IV Fight For City Name

Price - 39$

New Features - 1 new gun, 2 bonus uniforms

 

GTA:IV Northern Strike

Price - 39$

New Features - 1 new gun, 3 new buildings, Canadian peds

 

GTA:IV Special Forces

Price - 39$

New Features - 1 new gun, 2 new characters, ability to cast magic spells

hell no.

 

*i don't want microsoft to but them because we all know that the ps3 will be screwed over.

 

*i don't want sony to buy them because the xbox 360 will be screwed over.

 

* i don't want nintendo to buy it because they will ruin the gta fanchise itself. let nintendo stick with it's own stuff.

 

* i don't want EA to buy them because everyone will be screwed over.

If EA had Take-Two, we would be so screwed up... gah, I can't even think of the consequences of such horrible thing.

If EA bought TakeTwo, I'm sure Rockstar would just partner with someone else.

 

 

Xbox 360 is as good as dead.

 

Yeah, that makes sence, considering it's at the top of the sales charts and PS3 is in third place, not to mention the fact it has much better games and it's cheaper. And, they're not losing around 200 USD everytime they sell one, unlike the PS3.

Come on Microsoft buy it! Make me sure I made the right chose with my 360!

Amen! I just took the plunge and bought a 360 over the PS3. Between saving $200.00, 10 times more games, and Sony losing exclusivity everywhere (see GTA 4 and Devil May Cry 4) I figured I made the right choice. With the PSP basically bleeding money and the PS3 a solid 3rd place behind the 360 and Wii in sales, Sony's Video Game division must be going nuts now with this rumor out there!

Oh, fakey?

 

So Xbox 360 has a processor in it that can match the one in PS3? NO.

 

Ram? Please.

 

DVD?!? Dude, blue ray is mangling DVD right now, and moreso is mangling the sh*t out of HDDVD. The 360 gets an HDDVD plug-in drive? LOL Ok, sell that one to the retards who buy into xbox 360.

 

Simply put: Developers are way beyond a DL DVD at this point. They NEED blue ray's capacity. I shouldnt have opened my mouth I just was reading SO MUCH BULLOCKS in this category. I broke it out and spun it on your heads. You just cant handle the truth. haha, 360 owners purchased it because it was the first thing available to them with new flashy screenshots posted everywhere.

 

PS3 has a lot more going for it than all the things that already openly shadow xFlop3sh*tty. LOL.

 

THe way I say it all makes it sound like an opinion, I assure you my arrogance is NOT folly of misinformation. Believe it or dont, its over for xbox.

Did you really try to put facts in your post? SO WHO f*ckING CARES IF BLU-RAY HAS MORE f*ckING SPACE?? Developers need a big budget already just to make games 8GB. Just think of the budget if they wanted to fill 50GB!

 

 

blue ray is mangling DVD right now

What the f*ck are you talking about? What is the basis for your claim?

 

 

360 owners purchased it because it was the first thing available to them with new flashy screenshots posted everywhere.

Remember when we seen the first footage of games running on the PS3 and how Sony said they where real? Turns out, they where just renders.

 

 

I shouldnt have opened my mouth

Your right, you shouldn't of have because your post was full of lies.

 

To put it simply:

You are a PS3 fan boy that will believe anything Sony says. No, I'm not a Xbox fan boy. Right now I have every console Sony has ever made except the PS3. I have a 360, and I like it just as much as I like the PS2 and PSP.

 

Oh and BTW, Once I get some money, I do plan to buy the PS3.

Not nuts at all. You have not witnessed the ps3 yet. PS3 will dwarf the competition.

 

As for you, gamerzworld. where did you hear the nonsense you are f*cking up my perfectly good facts with? You had a meeting this week? I dont think so. Trust me, I cant "prove" it here, at this moment, but trust me, tart cart riders... It isnt long now.

 

Hard to program? Playstation Edge, tart

 

Blue Ray Speeds? Competent programmers who PROPERLY lay data to a disc. fa**ot developers like 360 cause its disc drive lets them be sloppy.

 

8gb? It costs money to DE-BLOAT games these days, you have no idea how retarded you look to a guy like me, knowing what I know.

For f*cks sake, can we all stop with the fanboy sh*t? Every single topic relating to video games has the same thing.

 

You are a fanboy!!!

 

No You are!

 

No, I can't be, I have both.

 

Well, I am going to be getting the other one.

 

I would say that the majority (if not, all) of the people arguing are fanboys. People are going to support the purchase that they made no matter what the f*ck anyone says. I don't think that anyone is disappointed with their console, because they all seem to be good.

 

There is no better console at this point. It doesn't matter what place each console is in sales, or what games have come out. You 360 fanboys(and that's exactly what I'm gonna call you, because that's exactly what you are) keep saying that there are more 360s in homes, and they have more games, so it is better than the PS3. Thats a bunch of bull sh*t, because the 360 has been out for over a year, compared to the PS3 that has a few months.

 

Whatever console comes out first is going to have the most fans. That is why the PS2 was the top dog last generation. The Xbox was more powerful and had better graphics than the PS2 didn't it? But that didn't stop the PS2 from being number one did it? This time the roles are reversed and Xbox came out first getting the advantage.

 

You can also stop with the whole $600 bullsh*t. Yeah, big deal, it costs more. You get what you pay for. The Xbox might be cheaper, but when you add up all the things you have to buy so that it can match the PS3, then they are about the same aren't they?

 

If you have argued defending either console, then you are a fanboy! Yes, that means you, that means me, that means pretty much all of us. If you weren't a fanboy, you wouldn't even care, and you would just go play your PS3/360 or something.

 

Flame on!

I agree with MMMF, if you want to be fanboys, take it to the topic made for it. Not this topic. "Oh, there's a PETTY RUMOUR that Microsoft is going to buy TakeTwo, maybe I'll go and talk about how much better the PS3 is and how it would suck if Microsoft bought TakeTwo!" "Oh, there's some guy talking about the PS3, well I'll prove him 360 is better even though that has BARELY ANYTHING to do with this PETTY RUMOUR!"

 

Oh, and jerzian, scroll up some and read my post that quotes you. Saying the 360 is dead when it's at the top of the sales charts, makes no sence at all.

Is it at all possible to even mention the words Microsoft and Sony or PS3 and Xbox 360 in the same sentence on a messageboard without a flame war breaking out five minutes later?

I'd be damned surprised if Take Two sold out to Microsoft, especially with some big releases due out in the near future. I can understand teaming with them and the whole non-exclusive rights from Sony... but there's a big difference between dancing with the devil and going home with him for milk'n'cookies.

Perfectly good facts? Please wait while I laugh my ass off.

 

 

You had a meeting this week?

I got invited to the Sony Fan Boy "facts" meeting this week, but I didn't go.

 

 

Trust me, I cant "prove" it here, at this moment, but trust me,

Here, I am going to fix this line for you. "Trust me, I cant "prove" it here, never will I be able to, but trust me."

OMG!! A SET OF TOOLS TO PROGRAM WITH! IT'S NOT LIKE THE 360 AND THE Wii HAVE A SET OF TOOLS TOO..... whatsthat.gif

 

 

fa**ot developers like 360 cause its disc drive lets them be sloppy.

So Rockstar is a fa**ot developer because they develop for the 360 also.....

 

 

you have no idea how retarded you look to a guy like me, knowing what I know.

Knowing what you know? All you know is the PS3. I bet you have NEVER played the 360 or any other console for that matter.

 

 

As for me, I am leaving this topic. I have better things to do than reply to fan boys all day.

I think that that dude is baffled by the ps3's "amazing power" and wants to show off. Its not working, at the moment the ps3 may be more powerful, but the xbox 360 is winning. To prove that the 360 can match up with the ps3 why did r* choose to make an identical game on both platforms? (gta4)

This topic is about a possible takeover of Take2 by Microsoft, not about whether one console is better than another. Warns have been issued - worse will follow if any more of this crap is posted by anyone.

Yeah, but it was cleared up 2 pages ago that it wouldn't be happening anyway. I say a lock would do this thread some good.

Exactly, the 360 came out and had a bad launch and it had no next gen competition at all. The 360 wouldn't have nearly as many followers as they do now if the PS3 and 360 were released at the same time.

 

Only difference is that the 360 had time to get out of it's rut, and the PS3 didn't. The PS3 is definitely getting back on track as of late though, and soon enough, no one will be able to deny that.

 

To add to the topic, I don't think that even if Microsoft did want to byu Take Two and they did end up doing it, I don't think it would have been the end of the PS3 either.
