    We'll make you an offer

    There must be a few mobsters over at Take Two with plenty of secrets in the trunk of their car right now, because the evidence of a new Mafia game continues to pile up.

  • News Take-Two Wrestles WWE License from Defunct THQ

    Pinned down

    Take-Two is half a tap away from taking control of the WWE license.

    Blood, sweat, and tiny pants

    While the majority of THQ’s franchises found new homes yesterday, there’s still been no official word on the future of the WWE license.

  • News Take-Two Trademarks GTA TV

    Don't tell the Daily Mail

    With the exception of Call of Duty, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto is about the only franchise in the world big enough to command its own television channel. And even then we’re pretty sure it would fill out its programming schedule with Teleshopping ads promoting the Jack LaLanne power juicer. But what’s this got to do...

  • News L.A. Noire Sells Almost Five Million Copies

    No lie

    L.A. Noire might not have been the most even of releases – the open-world crime drama overstayed its welcome by several hours – but it’s still deserving of its success.

    Users "graduating" to HD devices

    The Wii has brought a huge number of people into gaming, from undergraduates to granddads, but many see the PlayStation Move as the next logical step: more precise and with greater graphical power behind it, it's more an evolution than a revolution.
