Epic on MS Buyout Rumors: Only One Billion?

Develop Mag has a response from Epic's Mark Rein to rumors being spread in GamePro magazine that Microsoft will be purchasing the Unreal developer this summer for approximately $1 billion. The Epic veep doesn't actually dismiss the speculation, as much as the price tag, saying one billion is about half of what he thinks such a deal should be worth.

UT3 like most PC titles (it was released on PC first) never had a marketing campaign. Yet anybody who's taken basic bisiness classes knows the importance of marketing & product placement. On top of that PC gamers got the PS3 version Epic admitted that they did not want to work on a PC version.

THe interface for UT3 was horrible now with the patches it's gone form horrible to bad. On top of that we have CliffyB a guy I used to have alot of respect using BS excuses for the poor sales of UT3 PC. Consoles are taking away hardcore PC gamers...no... PC gamers don't like to spend their cash on bad ports or crappy games just like any gamer. Oh and CLiffy B saying PCs could not handle Gears LOL!!! Yes that really makes him credible...look at the components that make the 360 CLiffy!

I'll end my rent here & let Epic go the way of UBI & EA the great thing about PC gaming there is always someone waiting to take over the and innovate when other companies get gready & lazy. LEt's see what the guys that made STALKER come up with next...doubt Epic couild do anything comparable with all their $$$.
