Forbes has taken a look at Take-Two statement that they have been having buyout discussions with other "interested parties" besides Electronic Arts.

They believe this could only be Activision and Ubisoft. They further eliminate Activision because of their current merger with Vivendi on the belief that they are probably too busy to deal with a buyout.

That leaves Ubisoft.

We know that Ubisoft is looking to get serious about acquisitions and have recently earmarked a lot of money for just that. Could they snatch Take-Two away from the jaws of EA?

Forbes doesn't think Ubisoft can currently afford Take-Two at EA's current bid. They'd need an influx of cash to outbid EA. Take-Two might be a little too ambitious for Ubisoft at the moment, but it's definitely a company they'd love to have.

Ubisoft does not yet have a sports arm, with only one title currently announced (Shaun White Snowboarding) in the sports genre. 2K Sports would be a welcome addition to Ubisoft's stable.

Stay tuned for more Take-Two fun.
