    Well with Ubisoft decreasing their PC DRM or decreasing their annoyance I have hope. I wonder how many others are putting in bids as well. Then again it is possible companies will wait to see how low they can buy their assets.

    I hope they can be saved, they have some good franchises, Company of Heroes and Saints Row to name a couple.

    Not a good sign for the industry either if they should fold, also, i want my Saints Row 4 fix.

    I just hope someone buys the publishing rights to South Park: The Stick of Truth.

    It's one of the only games I want next year and it looks quite honestly amazing.

    Otherwise THQ has some pretty good franchises, I'd think Ubisoft would do well in purchasing them and their developers. THQ has probably the most original franchises out of the EA-Activision-Ubisoft-THQ Fab Four.

    Nintendo should buy THQ, maybe then we will see Metro: Last Light on the Wii U.

    So who's who? Personally, my money is on Activision = McCartney, EA = Lennon, Ubisoft = Harrison, and THQ = Starr.

    Technically THQ would be John since they died first.

    That is if EA buys them. Ubisoft uses Steam and Uplay to sell their PC games.
