    what EA should do (is they do purchase Take Two) is make GTA games more violent, just to piss old jacko off

    I think Jack T has pissed off so many gamers, that any game publisher who associates them selfs with him would be shooting them selfs in the foot. I'm sure EA know that as well, so I don't think EA will even consider working with him.

    the good thing is, the court system in FL doesn't take Jack very seriously anymore.

    He is the laughing stock of both the gaming and legal community's. Does he actually think he has something to offer them? This guy needs to be committed.

    Argh. Please stop giving this scumbag extra publicity. I think when it is *absolutely* necessary to mention him we should use a degrading alias. That way, it might be funny, it denies him the pleasure of seeing his name all over the interwebs, and google might even pick it up too! :D

    If EA buy take two we can look forward to yearly money spinners and crappy games. If it happens, which it wont until at least after the GTA 4 release i'll simply boycott them. Along with many others ive spoken to

    Or we change all the hyperlinks with his name in to some pseudo-google page akin to the 'french military victories' lols.

    It can be done! A concerted effort on behalf of all on the internet :p lol

    i think Rockstar Games will break off from Take Two before Take Two is bought by anyone, then all EA or Activision will be acquiring is the 2K Games group
    How did the offers even come about? i don't remember Take Two actually being in any financial trouble... (unless thats the result of numerous lawsuits?)

    maybe Jack's just playing nice in order to get on EA's legal team, since he's about to be pushed off the Florida bar?

    Is it not funny that Jack is saying video games cause violence and that we should ban them? If indeed video games do cause people to go out and kill people, why has no one shot Jack yet?

    I really hope that Take Two doesnt give up..

    EA should consider lowering the prices of their games instead of buying other companies, that would make people less angry at them.

    So... JT wants to work with EA to buy Take Two so that he can help "purge" them of their sinful ways?

    I wasn't under the impression this is what EA intended. In fact, I think EA are doing it to take advantage of the 'sinful' ways of Take-Two's GTA franchise and to make loads and loads of $£ due to the hyped potential of GTA4.

    And if that's the case, I wouldn't think EA would want to take aboard a nutjob like JT who might, and in all probabilty would, jeopardise their [EA's] financial gains on the GTA series & name.
