It is not rocket science. The shareholders would be idiots to sell to EA.

From the article, Take2 is actually open to sale, they just want to wait untill after GTA4 is out (which should make their stock worth more, and the buyout more expensive I would think).

EA is currently offering 64% more then the shares are worth though, so the shareholders have a pretty good chance of selling out I think.

All we'll be left with is EA and Actiblizzard.
Don't forget Valve. EA lost their shot at acquiring valve after HL2. Now that they have Id, Rockstar, Epic all distributing with them they have no shot at owning them. Sure EA has the retail distribution rights to Valve games but that is only a very small portion of the profits.

I'm pretty sure EA has never had a chance at Valve, It's never been a traded comany, I know for a fact that Gabe wouldn't sell Valve to anyone.
