BioShock did better than expected.

GTA IV is expected to sell millions and it will, so indeed it won't impact the stock price if it does. Then comes the controversy and possibly another bevy of lawsuits (after all, why not? It worked last time)

Seriously, Take-Two should sell and it knows it should, it's just trying to drive up the prize. The fact is that they've been posting structural losses since the quarter they published Oblivion in. That's saying something.

I've never been impressed by anti-trust laws in the US

Neelie Kroes will kill them in the EU, though.
