Microsoft Appears to Lean Toward Hostile Yahoo Bid!

Microsoft Appears to Lean Toward Hostile Yahoo Bid! 50°
357w ago - Microsoft Corp. late Thursday was leaning toward going hostile in its pursuit of Yahoo Inc., according to people familiar with the matter, with an announcement likely Friday.

But the people cautioned that the situation was fluid as discussions continued and said the software company could change tack before announcing its decision. Microsoft declined to comment on its plans.

In an interview earlier Thursday, Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer declined to indicate Microsoft's decision and wouldn't say when the company would make a decision public. "With the right circumstances it'll happen. Without the right circumstances it won't happen," he said.

Price will be a key factor if Microsoft does take a hostile approach to Yahoo, which it made an unsolicited offer for in January. Microsoft's original cash-and-stock offer, which Yahoo has said undervalues it, was valued at $29.48 a share as of 4 p.m. Nasdaq Stock Market composite trading Thursday.

Revenue for online games was up 71 percent from 2006 to 2007, to $1.7 billion - with 21% of that figure coming from casual and "advanced casual" titles.

The firm expects a further 47 percent growth next year, with compound annual growth of 29% through 2012 to $6 billion. Niko managing partner Lisa Cosmas Hanson elaborated on the sharp increase in an exclusive interview with Gamasutra.

An Increasingly Game-Aware Culture

"Disposable income is rising, and people are able to spend a more money on games then they have in the past. The number of games has increased because as it becomes a more popular pasttime, the younger kids join this force, and the older gamers continue to play," said Hanson.

"In addition, prices have fallen, so people have bought more home PCs, so they can play more than when they just had to go to cafes. People still go to cafes for competition, however, and in cities where income is not as high."

Niko puts the number of hardcore Chinese gamers at 14 million, with that group...

New MGS4 video hints at original MGS inclusion

New MGS4 video hints at original MGS inclusion 50°
357w ago - Konami has released a new video for Metal Gear Solid 4 showing some flash backs to MGS 1 and Smash Bros Brawl.

The video finishes with the strap line "Is it possible to replay MGS!?" This seems to imply that in MGS 4, we will somehow be able to play some of the missions in the original MGS.

Maybe in the form of a flashback? Who knows....
