275w ago - Square Enix announced its proposal last week to acquire a controlling stake in Tecmo. While the bid was set to expire later today, Tecmo formally rejected the offer this morning, as they believe a merge with Koei would be more fitting.
From the released statement, translated by Reuters:
Through a merger, we expect we can grow further by respecting both companies' identities and having an environment in which employees can fully exhibit their skills.
Koei, eh? Makes sense. Tecmo is popular here in the West with titles like Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive, while Koei is well-known for its Dynasty Warriors series, which is a huge hit in Japan.
So a merge would give them significant market share in both countries. Given the current state of the company, it's rather surprising that Tecmo passed up on Square's offer indeed.
293w ago - Activision boss Bobby Kotick has expressed concerns about the possibility of a merge between EA and Take-Two.
"That's concerning, sure," he told Reuters. "When you think about one company in control of the sports category, with no competition from anybody else, that could be a challenge."
That the deal would also knock the Activision-Vivendi deal out of the Guinness Book of Records is also playing on his mind, we'd wager.
The $18 billion deal currently stands as biggest in the history of video games, but it's expected that an EA / Take-Two merge would be worth significantly more. Now that GTA IV is out, talks between the two companies are expected to start soon.
293w ago - French-based publisher Infogrames today announced that it has formed a definitive pact with Atari to merge. Reached to the tune of $11 million dollars, the agreement gives Infogrames complete control over Atari.
"Bringing Atari US and Infogrames businesses together will enable us to create a simplified global structure for our business as we seek to re-build a well-managed, cohesive and financially disciplined company," said Infogrames CEO David Gardner.
"This is a key strategic event for Infogrames that will benefit all of our shareholders. I believe that this transaction will generate significant benefits for the Group," he added.
As part of the deal, Infogrames has agreed to lend Atart $20 million in funding to cover capital requirements. The publisher expects to close and seal the merger deal in the third quarter of 2008.
