Take-Two Interactive Software shares also increased 5% because of the good financial results, with Chairman and CEO of Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick talking about the recent success:|

Take-Two's second quarter revenue and earnings exceeded our outlook, driven by the breakout success of 2K's Borderlands 2 and robust demand for our catalog and digitally delivered offerings.

Over the past three months, revenues of $288 million were bought in, with profits of $10.2 million on that. Analysts had expected the company to make a loss, so this is definitely a nice surprise. Year-over-year results are also great, with last years only seeing revenue hit $107 million. Take-Two has a bright future ahead of them, with the very, very highly anticipated release of Grand Theft Auto V in spring next year.
