Jack Thompson is ready to help Electronic Arts with Take-Two’s takeover bid
Controversial attorney Jack Thompson is at it again. This time around he gave more than his two cents regarding the Electronic Arts and the Take-Two Interactive merger. In fact, he said he’d be willing to help EA with their endeavor of acquiring Take-Two. Find out more after the jump!
We’ve been constantly bringing you guys with news regarding the Electronic Arts and the Take-Two Interactive takeover. It was only recently that T2 turned down EA’s offer because they’re still looking at other offers from other firms.
Even if the merger didn’t push through, Analyst Doug Creutz pointed out that EA was still the best partner for T2. Jack Thompson thinks so too since, as it turns out, he’s been “a longtime Take-Two shareholder.” In fact, he has just released an announcement that he’s willing to assist EA in their efforts in acquiring the game publisher.
In an email he sent out to the EA CEO, John RIccitiello, Thompson spoke fearlessly about T2’s big wig Strauss Zelnick by saying:
I am delighted to work with Electronic Arts to evict the Zelnick Trojan Horse from within Take-TwoÂ’s corporate walls. In doing so, I can get the new Take-Two into the clear as to the trouble I and others can send its way.
Zelnick is the source of trouble headed Take-TwoÂ’s way, not I, and EA can make the case, with my help, that such trouble can be avoided.
What’s surprising about this is that, the people from GamePolitics were able to dig up some astounding past information regarding Thompson in their archives. They found out Thompson earlier had been a Sims 2 basher. He stated that:
[The Sims 2 contains] Â“full frontal nudity, including nipples, penises, labia, and pubic hair. The nudity placed there by the publisher/maker, Electronic Arts, is accessed by the use of a simple code that removes what is called Â‘the blurÂ’ which obscures the genital areas.
In other words, the game was released to the public by the manufacturer knowing that the full frontal nudity was resident on the game and would be accessed by use of a simple code widely provided on the InternetÂ…
Now, Thompson’s latest move could be read as absurd or just another silly way to make himself “popular” with the crowd. As for us, here in QJ, we’ll be bringing you more news and updates regarding this matter.
