    Just another sign that EA's just after the bottom line and not interested in quality and customer care :(

        EA Denied...again!
        You mean like when they were denied last month?

        I'm actually hopeful for EA lately, CEO John Riccitiello has been coming around lately.

        Ideally, Riccitiello believes, studios within a large publisher should operate like independent studios freed from having to worry about making payroll and strategizing marketing. He said he hoped EA's own internal studios would be like Valve Software or Blizzard Entertainment--self-contained organizations with strong leaders primed for massive growth and creativity.

        "The command and conquer model, the command and direct model doesn't work," said Riccitiello. He went on to concede that EA's past post-acquisition tactics backfired badly. "Bullfrog, Origin, Westwood--all no longer exist today because something broke. ... and I'll simply state that EA blew it, and to a certain degree, since I was involved, I blew it."
        Hey, it's a start.

                      So, $860M for two companies that even a lot of gamers have never heard of, but they only offer a little more than twice that for arguably the most recognized and talked about game around today?

                        “After careful evaluation, the Board has determined that EA's proposal substantially undervalues Take-Two’s robust and enviable stable of game franchises, exceptional creative talent and strong consumer loyalty,” read the Take-Two Interactive statement. “We believe EA's unsolicited offer is highly opportunistic and is attempting to take advantage of our upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto IV, one of the most valuable and durable franchises in the industry.”

                        In other words, their proposal to make them part of EA would threaten the
                        robust
                        stable
                        exceptional creative talent
                        strong consumer loyalty

                        because they don't know what these things are?

                          After careful evaluation, the Board believes that Microsoft’s proposal substantially undervalues Yahoo! including our global brand, large worldwide audience, significant recent investments in advertising platforms and future growth prospects, free cash flow and earnings potential, as well as our substantial unconsolidated investments.

                          I suspect they all use the same boilerplate.

                            I think it's a sign of the health of the video game industry that a $2 Billion offer is rejected.
