I am glad Take Two didn't get Volition. It wouldn't be right for GTA and SR to be under the same roof. That **** might cause a rift in the space-time continuum or something!
Seriously though, SR is really the only worthy rival to GTA, and if Take Two had gotten it, they probably would have either closed up shop on it or they would have made it so nonsensical that would couldn't have taken it seriously anymore, and we could BARELY take it seriously as it was after SR3 and its purple ...'bat'.
I wouldn't have minded if WB got it though. Imagine Ed Boon sticking his hands into the world of SR, or maybe an SR/Justice League crossover or something! All kinds of possibilities would have come with that acquisition if it had happened!
I am glad EA didn't get it. I never thought anyone could suck the life out of Bioware, but EA did. If they can do that to Bioware, Volition wouldn't have stood a chance in hell!
