    It's being said Rockstar is going Playstation exclusive after GTA IV:

    Guy from cheapassgamer posted this from his play magazine that he just got:

    EDIT: Fixed the source link in the quote.

    Nice spin but that's fud. They wouldn't dare undercut sales between 2 platforms just to be a PS3 fanboy. :rolleyes:
    Sometimes you try to hard.

    That's not necessarily true, although it is questionable, doesn't mean that it's not true.

    Lol, I try too* hard? Shut up dude don't start something just because I post something that's being rumored.

    Actually it is, just because someone says it doesn't make it true. And yes, you do try to hard because your posts comes off as PS3 partisan in a thread discussing EA buying take 2. In other words, has nothing to do with this thread at all.

    Hmm...Probably because I own a PS3? Lol.

    It's not someone who said it, it's a company that writes a magazine that said it. Therefore, the entire company stands behind their print. Besides it's a rumor, as stated in the source. If you would actually took that into consideration, as I did, you would get somewhere.

    True the article is questionable, but that doesn't mean it's not true. Rumors are flying everywhere right now that MS is about to purchase EPIC games.

    This same news that your post right now was being rumored long before you even posted it.

    Its off topic to this thread and has nothing to do with EA trying to buy take 2. Dude give it a rest. Your posting a PS3 related rumor in a off topic manner.

    EA is a very scary company these days... like some sort of gigantic blob that eats everything in its path?

    So essentially you're saying by you bringing up GTA IV you took your own topic off topic. :laugh::slap:

    Besides the ignorance of this thread is horrible:

    1. EA buying Take Two doesn't change the development team by much.

    2. EA owns many companies and still retains their same developers.

    3. These companies would have a hard time in order to gain the specific licenses that they have on top of developing costs, marketing responsibilities, etc. Do you think the could do this alone? The answer is no.

    4. This would put an end to games like BioShock being exclusive, which is a huge game (great game) that PS3 players missed out on.

    5. 2K sports would remain the same and would keep the same name, but would have the financial backing of EA and its resources. EA would never get rid of 2K sports. They would make entirely too much money off of it.

    6. Take two would gain tons of financial help. More than they are now, and in turn would make tons of great end products for their customers.

    7. All of the points listed above is the end result of good games for all of us.

    The only thing failing is you thinking that EA is some closed minded sheep that is out to do some sort of epic evil to other companies. They didn't just show up with tons of money out of nowhere. They were there for a reason.

    In my eyes Take Two is failing their customers by not accepting EAs offer simply because they feel that EA undervalued the company, aka, Take Two shareholders and CEOs want more money because they are greedy.

    Guys, this is a pretty hot topic. Just respect one another please. GTAIV as specified in the article is a major issue with this deal and the PS3 and Xbox360 are both affected by this. Just be cool.:cool:

    It's pretty obvious you come to this thread to cause commotion with your bias opinion, unfounded rumor and, show that you are not very astute to the subject at hand. It doesn't make good business sense to sell the company for less then what they could make of the sell of GTA IV.

    Aren't everyones opinions somewhat biased? It's ok to disagree and discuss, that's what forums are for. :toast:

    Sure because it would be better for Take 2 to die off and go bankrupt in a market that publishers mean everything now. GTA IV stands to make more money if it had the financial resources of EA. Or maybe you like it more if its studios were sold off to separate companies and go no where after that.

    Why do you think that rumor about Rockstar going exclusive came about?

    You have a hard time actually making a point, instead you just throw out things trying to downplay the other person.

    I agree with eastcoast

    But my opinion on the matter is:
    EA doesn't really seem to care about Take Two.. and it apears they only wanna get their hands on some of the money from the new GTA game. (I know that sounds bias but I do actuly like EAs games more than Take Twos games.)

    It just seems odd EA is trying to push take 2 around just before they are about to release a huge cash cow?
