Another EA sale, another reminder that they hate the original Mass Effect Trilogy and won't discount its DLC.

For all those talking about A Way Out... Played it with a friend when it first came out. I really really enjoyed it. The acting isn't the best but it's such a different experience from anything else I've played. Really unique and really cool and I would argue worth $18

A lot of these EA sales feel even more mediocre if you have a gaming PC or Xbox One to use EA Access with. Something I've been meaning to do just to play a couple titles (A Way Out, Unraveled, The Sims 4)

EA Access makes buying their games on any platform unnecessary.

Only if you own an Xbox One, unless I’m missing something.

Why would you buy those games on any platform (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, etc) if you're subbed to EA/Origin Access?

Just read on Twitter that Path of Exile is finally coming to PS4 on March 26th, along with its new expansion Synthesis. I'm excited to try it.

Isn’t EA Access only on Xbox? If someone doesn’t have an Xbox, buying the games makes sense, right?

I looked around the thread + check some stores.
Does anyone know of a cheap place to get ps+ currently? I just want to be able to add MW Remaster to my collection from PS+ before it disappears.

If you are in the US, CDKeys.com has 1-year codes for $44.19. They have other regions as well, if needed.

Sony in “advanced board level discussions” to buyout Rockstar parent company Take-Two – rumor

 

According to a MarketWatch report (via Daniel Ahmad), Sony is currently in “advanced board level discussions” regarding the acquisition of Take-Two Interactive.  It’s said to be looking at a “cash deal,”  value the company at $130 share, per Joel Kulina of Wedbush Securities.

 

Huge if true. Wow. GTA and RDR exclusive to Sony platforms if this turns out true.

Why would they cut the money that is being made on those games in half?

Exactly. There is no amount of money Sony can give them that would come close to what they would continue to make long term being on both. Pretty sure their history doesn't indicate that they hate money, so this would be a total shocker.

Xbox looks like it is going third-party, streaming Game Pass to anything with a screen. And Microsoft/Nintendo definitely is not even close to half of the market when you have PC, Sony, and Mobile on the other end of things. Odds are they will continue Take Two as its own thing, just like MS does with Mojang/Minecraft.

Because an immediate 35% premium return to investors is an offer you have to take seriously.

No profitable company would ever merge if what you said was a commonly held belief.

They would also realize a lot of cost savings from leveraged practices and sadly reduced headcounts.

They could theoretically guarantee their investors a large cash windfall and give the company extended life as part of a merger.

There are always reasons to listen and negotiate on these things. But ultimately it is the boards job to deliver value to shareholders and I while TT makes good money they aren’t going to return 30%+ to their shareholders that fast.

And No Sony won’t operate them as usual. This acquisition would be to position Sony and their next console and future streaming services/PsNow for the future. Remember Google is coming.

They may allow historically PC games to stay that way and current multi-plat projects will finish out that way, but future work will strictly be focused on the Sony brands and platforms.

You buy a company with a library lf TT knowing you will lose some revenue stream with the acquisition but you will gain lowered costs and competitive advantage by owning those desirable Ips

Doubt they would let Take Two do their own thing.  So much exclusive money to be made, and it would sell their hardware like no other.  Then again, who knows.

I think Sony and Microsoft see the writing on the wall and know that proprietary hardware isn't going to last in the long run. Buying up IP and developers with a solid track record is a good move when considering the future of game streaming and mobile/PC marketshare.

Very interesting if the rumor turns out to be true.  I mean, a good collection of exclusive games is the biggest factor that made PS4 number one this generation in my opinion, so I wouldn't be surprised if Sony makes GTA 6 (if it's not already in development for multi-platforms) or RDR 3 a PS5 exclusive.  Even within the latest trend of games-as-a-service, game streaming, cross platform, no physical discs, and so forth, exclusive games are here to stay and will remain as an important factor for an average consumer in deciding a platform.

 

I personally think it will not be a good thing for the future of Take Two though.

Not exactly. They said December then February, then mid March and also said they would give an announcement about 2 weeks before launch.

But I see your point.

A while back I changed my primary PS4 so me and my son could game share. Well it's clear he has zero interest in anything PS4 as all of his friends are on XB1. I've noticed a few quirks since doing this about applications being suspended in 15 minutes due to not having the license or whatnot, and while it's never kept me from playing I'm thinking about going back to how I originally had them set up.

If I am the only person playing and there will never be a time where two people need to play at the same time, it doesn't matter which one is primary, right? I just have two spots in my house I like being able to play The Show lol.
