Suppose it does happen, how fucked is the gaming industry?
Wouldn't Take-Two have to be important or actually make games for this to be important?
Like mention 3 good games they have been involved in in the past 5 years.
Or 5 good games in the past 10 years.
>Tfw I will still buy all the games and enjoy them
Why does everyone cry about no money in gtao?
Play a few missions with your FRIENDS, have FUN and you'll have about 300k by the time the nights over.
>WAHH I NEED TANKS AND CURAZAY ROCKETS 24/7 TO HAVE FUN
ITT: People thinking less publishers wouldn't hurt the gaming industry
Oh you fucks, we're going to be in a world with just 3 video game publishers that constantly jew their audience. If a publisher like Take Two can be swallowed up by one of the three, any publisher is subject to that demise.
gta iv mp was boring though.
you're just parroting what some other retard said on /v/ but you really have no clue and it shows
want tanks and rockets? go into a mission with them both in, you can create anything you want so what's stopping you?
You don't have to pay for forced vehicles or weapons in a mission so whats your problem?
What's your excuse now?
It wouldn't change anything.
Western games are dead.
Might as well let Activision drive every genre into the ground while they can.
Civ5 was the most broken piece of shit Civ game to EVER be released.
GTA5 is universally hated by anyone because its a boring ass game. Literally go into any thread talking about it and see.
RDR was only loved because it was console exclusive. And like all console exclusives nobody played a month after it was released because its actually shit.
Then again you're probably just trolling.
>GTA5 is universally hated by anyone
>Literally go into any thread talking about it and see.
There's a whole world out there beyond /v/. A mystical place where people like things
get a load of this HIPSTER
tell us anon whats your favourite franchise?
>gta iv mp was boring though
>you're just parroting what some other retard said on /v/ but you really have no clue and it shows
Nice ad hominem, but no, I actually played the game.
The fact that Jewstar designed the whole online mode around micro transaction was clear to me within one hour of playing the game.
- having to buy cars
- cops chase you when they see you in a stolen car
- can't disable cops to force you to buy a car and spend money
- have to buy weapons/ammo
- cant create custom free roam lobbies because that would interfere with the micro transaction structure of the game
These are just a few examples.
>want tanks and rockets? go into a mission with them both in, you can create anything you want so what's stopping you?
What if I don't want to do missions?
Also your passive aggressive attitude is blowing your cover, shill.
>You don't have to pay for forced vehicles or weapons in a mission so whats your problem?
But I don't want to do missions. Actually most people hate them because they are a boring grind.
People want to free roam.
/v/ shits on new releases just because
literally nothing will change
Rockstar give out free dlc, not a fucking penny but still get shat on
rockstar make missions where you can add whatever the fuck you want, want a crazy deathmatch with RPG'S tanks and trucks without costing you a fortune, then you can!
>wahh rockstar are jews
You're actually pathetic.
/v/ has always used metacritic as reference. a lot of /v/irgins write reviews on there too. obviously the shilling is off the charts, but the user reviews are usually fairly accurate and does get balanced out.
>what if I don't want to do missions
you're a fucking retard, going into a mission is literally the same thing as free roam so you clearly have not played it, the only difference between a mission and free roam is you'll get money at the end of it and not have to pay money for anything.
>i-i can't counter your argument so i'm just gonna call u shill every post!11!11
>b-but i dont want to do missions
you don't want to do a mission that is exactly like free roam just because its called a mission?
your autism is showing
Except it's not free. Don't know why people love saying this. It costs in game currency. The Beach Bum pack WAS free. It isn't even free anymore when Rockstar realized they could make more money of it in connection to Shark Cards.
No, it is free dlc.
You'd be correct if they had some special currency that you could only get by paying real money like gold dollars (idk what the fuck ever)
>content is for people who can pay with gold dollars only
it's not like that, you can easily get the money.
I don't feel like Take-Two would sell. I mean they don't really have a reason to. This "analyst" is just posing a thought because he has nothing interesting to talk about in these dry summer months.
If something costs in game currency and said currency can be purchased using real currency, it's not free. Even if you don't purchase it, Rockstar knows how many people will especially if the prices are inflated & money earned is lowered, while time spent is raised.
>even if you don't buy currency with real money and get it all the content by not spending a single penny out of your real life bank account then it's not free because somebody else can do the opposite
do you know how retarded you sound? please stop
No, they weren't. Franklin was just there to be CJ, part 2 only they didn't bother flesh out anything with him. I'll never forget the whole Latisha Jackson thing. As if I had any relationship with her at all. I didn't even see the breakup unless I switched to him at the right time.
I'm absolutely convinced that heists won't come out until the next gen/PC versions, and then the heists will ONLY be available for those versions. Not the PS3/360 versions.
But the seventh gen versions get free clothes and flight school!
Is there a mission with no cops?
Is there a mission where I could get infinity ammo and weapons for free?
Is there a mission where I can disable friendly fire?
Is there a mission where I can choose specific area to spawn in?
This is not how you samefag. It's too obvious.
It will still be the same shit. Activision will take Rockstar North and Rockstar San Diego and make them pump up GTAs every two/three years.
Who fucking cares? GTA V was fucking garbage with the most retarded story ever.
>Is there a mission with no cops?
>Is there a mission where I could get infinity ammo and weapons for free?
>Is there a mission where I can disable friendly fire?
>Is there a mission where I can choose specific area to spawn in?
You just want cheat codes like a 12 year old. Go fire up Vice City you fucking faggot.
No, I won't because it's true, especially since Rockstar claim that Shark Cards pay for the "free" DLC & the servers. It's a very good business practice. Doesn't make them good people.
They are not forcing anyone to buy them.
Do you understand this? how is it forced?
Shark cards aren't a special currency, the content isn't locked behind special currency either.
You can either earn it or you can "cheat" and buy it.
it's not enforced, thus, it's free.
I would agree with you if they locked the content behind special currency that you cannot earn through playing the game.
You do realize you're enabling Rockstar to treat you like shit, right? Rockstar don't care about you if don't buy Shark Cards. Why else would every single update that touches payouts lower them? Economy Balancing? Not hardly.
The sole reason I went to a thread called "Activision looking to purchase Take Two", was to shill my nearly a year old review of Bioshock: Infinite. Seems completely logical to me,
I don't buy shark cards so no. I'm not enabling rockstar. I get all my money from having fun with friends.
I'm just showing how you're factually wrong, and because you don't like being wrong you have to move the goalposts
They gave more money to other missions, nobody was playing deathmatches or races anymore because everyone was spamming rooftop rumble, and don't deny that they weren't, the more players in your lobby and the more time spent = the more cash you get.
People are missing the fact that Take Two is an option. Not a good option, but they're an option. If there are less and less publishers, that spells doom for the consumers. It'll be just as bad as ISP's in America.
SO MUCH REDDIT HERE HOLY FUCKING SHIT
VIVIANFAGS AND ZOEFAGS HAVE KILLED /v/
Not forcing is not any better than pushing and that's all Rockstar have done. They push a "legit cheating" method that not only does nothing but make them money but, it damages the game. Rockstar have continued to lower every payout since the game has started, while pushing out ridiculously priced things. 85,000 for a smart car? Might as well get one in real life for 8,000. Rockstar claim they want the game to have a working economy which is why they go after money glitchers. That makes no sense and is a flat out lie. Shark Cards do just as much damage. GTAO will never be a working community & the game will never be more than Rockstar's cash cow & that is what they want.
This is stupid. Take Two refused a 2 billion dollar offer from EA 6 years ago, back when they were less diverse. Analyst is suggesting they'll accept being bought out for 1 billion now.
This is not happening. This is some idiot fishing way too hard.
Yes, Goy, there is nothing wrong with being Jewish
>Publisher infamous for milking yearly rehashes buying another publisher that owns a developer infamous for taking their sweet time with maybe one game per decade.
This gonna be good.
>the more time spent = the more cash you get.
You just said it. Right there. More time for more cash. Before 1.05, do you know how much cash you were making? It's more than you're making now & that is all Rockstar cares about.
>People shouting "Reddit has invaded!"
plz think of Civilization and the rest of Firaxis
>overlooking free updates that most of the other companies would force you to buy as DLC
I would rather take rockstar jewishness over Activision with all of its Paytoplay micro DLCs
whats wrong with GTAO ?
Yes, 7 years or so ago. I think Activision might be in desperation mode, some of their moves just this month alone has made me think that maybe Blizzard will suffer whatever budget they'll lose and buy themselves out. Blizzard's been completely trumping them in revenue, I'd be surprised if they didn't sacrifice whatever budget ATVI gives them for some creative freedom. If you haven't following, lets recap:
>They recreated Sierra
>They were looking to expand into films by creating a movie studio
>Now they're looking to purchase a very large publisher in Take Two
I don't see any other reason why they'd make so much investment into their publishing as they have been the past 2-3 weeks. Whatever the case may be, it's going to be really interesting/scary to see what precedents Activision sets.
>mission gives 30k for all of us every 15 minutes
>after 3 hours we all have 350k
Talk about pennies. Before 1.05, you got 32K every single play. Even after 1.05, you got 32K every 4 minutes since the job only took 2 minutes but, you go keep on trucking. Enjoy.
