Microsoft Also Looking At Vivendi Universal
from the no-big-surprise-there dept
While it was a bit of a surprise to hear that Apple was looking at buying Universal Music, it’s not that surprising to hear that
Microsoft has also been poking around. Everyone knew that Microsoft was talking to Vivendi about their gaming unit, so I imagine expanding the discussion to other areas of the business would be a part of the natural progression of talks. Letting that news “leak” now, could just be a way of forcing Apple’s hand (and making them push up the price). This report also claims that the possibility of the Apple deal was now in a “make or break” phase.
