is Ubisoft ook geintereseerd in het opkopen van Eidos. Another name has popped up in the speculation game over who might buy Eidos. Shares of UbiSoft have been on the rise in recent days, climbing nearly 10 percent on the Paris Stock Exchange as investor whispers have grown. UbiSoft, of course, is just one of three French gaming companies that the rumor mill has linked to Eidos, which last week confirmed it is "in the early stages of discussions [with an unnamed company] which may or may not lead to an offer for the whole of the issued share capital of Eidos." Ubisoft is enminste wel een 'echt' gaming bedrijf, in tegenstelling tot Microsoft, wat zich tot de Xbox niet heel intensief in de gaming-industrie heeft gewaagd.
