Submitted by vGInfidel (150) at 6:27AM PST on March 26, 2008

After reviewing EA's recent and "unsolicited" tender offer to nab shares in the Grand Theft Auto publisher at $26 a piece, Take-Two's board of directors has deemed the maneuver "inadequate in multiple respects and contrary to the best interests of Take-Two's stockholders."

Though Take-Two's been trading consistently at or above $26 since April 23rd, it's the highest the share price has been since that week in February when the buyout was initially announced. The climb in stock price looks likely due to a voluminous wave of super-hyperbolic positivity from reviewers regarding the imminent GTA IV.
