Re: Vivendi to discuss sale of Activision Blizzard...
said by Kilroy:Disney.
My question what I saw that was, "Who can afford to buy them?" It would have to be another investment group as Blizzard is probably top dog in the PC gaming, if not all of gaming.

said by Time:Naw. While they have the revenue, they have too much debt right now. (Disney's Market cap is roughly $80 billion, on $40 billion in revenue, with only $4 billion in cash and $16 billion in debt) Plus I don't think Disney would be keen on associating their brand with COD and other violent imagery. said by Kilroy:

Attack the words, not the writer...
Disney owns ABC, plus releases movies under the Touchstone Pictures and Hollywood Pictures brands - these are for the more adult/mature audiences. They also acquired Marvel 3 years ago. Many of the titles released under those brands contain violent imagery, so continuing to release the same types of products under the existing name - and without a Disney logo in sight - would not be out of character for them. If, of course, they bought Act/Blizz.
When the ship lifts, all bills are paid. No regrets.

But Disney also owns Marvel Studios. Which released The Avengers this year. Again, not a typical Disney thing.
They used to own Miramax [1993-2010]. Miramax released some voilent titles as well. Disney owns Touchstone pictures.
