Comments on: Grand Theft Auto IV is cruising Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: NewsVisual Wed, 07 May 2008 22:36:21 +0000 “If Take-Two can exceed sales expectations on Grand Theft Auto IV, it has the potential to drive up the share price and force Electronic Arts to raise its offer,” The Times reported in an online article on Wednesday. As we just learned from the flameout of any Yahoo-Microsoft deal, however, the personal relationship between the key players can often be a critical factor for advancing a deal. Indeed, the close personal connections between the members of both EA’s and Take-Two’s Boards of Directors could serve to bring a deal to a satisfactory conclusion for both companies.
