EA/Take-Two Follow-ups

Here's some of the inevitable more on EA's efforts at acquiring Take-Two Interactive (story). EA has launched a new website dedicated to the proposed deal, and MCV reports that Take-Two's pre-market stock valuation jumped around 47% this morning on the news of EA's $2 billion bid. Meanwhile, EA: We waited until GTA IV was complete before making $2bn move and Take-Two willing to negotiate with EA after GTA IV release discuss the timing of the move as it relates to Take-Two's marquee franchise. Sports games alone justify EA's Take-Two offer, says Pachter has some analysis from an analyst, and GameSpot offers more from Pachter, who puts his .300 batting average (story) on the line by predicting the move will happen whether Take-Two likes it or not. Meanwhile, GameSpot and Gamasutra each have Q&As on the offer with EA CEO John Riccitiello.

EDIT heh we should set up a pool, whos next on EA hit list, I'm thinking THQ.
Judging from the upward moves today in THQ stock, that is the conventional wisdom, but I don't buy it (figuratively speaking) because what does THQ have that EA would want? THQ has lost its Disney development deals, and what big franchises does THQ own or have exclusive rights to that EA would want? It makes sense that EA would want GTA, and EA probably would have bought Take 2 long before now if it weren't for Take 2's financial scandals and shareholder suits.
