Vivendi (VIVHY.PK) Chairman Jean-Rene Fourtou confirms to Bloomberg reports that the conglomerate could sell its 61% stake in Activision (ATVI), although sources say potential suitors don't seem to be that interested. Those to demur include Microsoft (MSFT) and Disney (DIS), while China's Tencent and Japan's Nexon don't have the cash.

    How many times do they intend to "confirm" this intention? I think this is the 5th or 6th time it's been "confirmed" in the past 2 weeks alone.

     

    To to mention that it was known months ago.

    I would love to see DIS buy the stake. Can you imagine ATVI with access to all Disney, Pixar and especially ESPN and Marvel licenses? On the flip side Disney could do some fun stuff with Skylanders and if they wanted to make adult movies around Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo and Call of Duty. ATVI has been making Spiderman games for a while so it's not like the two companies aren't at least vaguely familiar with each other.
