How Take-Two Beat Activision Blizzard and EA

Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ: TTWO  ) isn't the biggest, or even second-biggest, video game publisher around. And yet it managed to beat out much larger rivals Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI  ) and Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA  ) in terms of software sales last year.

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos talks about how Take-Two pulled off that upset. It was driven by a few blockbuster titles, particularly Grand Theft Auto V. And while it isn't likely that Take-Two will lead the industry again in 2014, he argues that its stock has room to grow when compared to Activision and EA. 

Start 2014 off right

    How Take-Two beat EA and ATVI? They made high quality games! Go look at the ratings for TTWO's releases of Bioshock Infinite, NBA 2K14, XCOM:Enemy Within, and GTA V. Then compare them to the ratings for ATVI titles like CoD:Ghosts and EA's NBA Live 14. Quality matters.
