Default Re: Valve Doesn't Mind Getting Acquired

When you thought of Valve, you'd immediately think HL or HL 2. Lately, when I think of Valve, I think of Steam and all that it brings to the PC. Steam, not one game that's been around for 4 years is what makes Valve what it is these days.

Anyways, Valve won't be bought unless some company goes insane and gets billions upon billions of dollars to buy it. Steam's a damn good piece of leverage.
EA and Activision have the funds to buy Valve. Hell it would be smart for EA to ignore Take2 and go for Valve since well Take2 is **** lately.

What on earth are you smoking?

Buying Take 2 would clearly be a better overall acquisition due to their IPs and the fact that EA would have taken out its major sports game competitor. Valve would probably command a huge amount of money -- one that neither EA or Activision would be willing to write simply for a download service when they both think they can make their own.

Because any acquisition of Valve at this point would probably be more for their Steam resources than IPs, surprisingly.

It's not about having the money. Microsoft has the money to buy Yahoo. It's about doing what's smart.
