Cabroneeeeeees, yo sí que quiero vender mis accioneeeeeeeees

La paciencia de EA tenía un límite. Bueno, como la nuestra con sus juegos (excluyendo alguno que otro como Skate). A lo que iba, que EA ha decidido retirar la oferta de compra por Take Two, compañía famosa por los geteás. Y bueno, ha elegido para ello el día en que se iba al carajo un banco estadounidense, así que, entre una cosa y otra, el valor de Take Two ha bajado drásticamente. Un 30%, para ser exactos. Así que, de repente, los 25 dólares que ofrecía EA no deberán parecerles tan mala idea. Tras el salto, la nota de prensa completa.
