Take 2 has revealed* its Second Fiscal Quarter results and they're quite good. Rather than spreading one story over ten small stories, the basic facts are:

- For the six months ended April 30, 2010, net revenue was $431.2 million, compared to $323.6 million for the same period a year ago.
- Loss from continuing operations for the first half of fiscal 2010 was $16.9 million compared to loss from continuing operations of $64.3 million for the 2009 period.
- Red Dead Redemption

- Grand Theft Auto IV

, Mafia II
and Sid Meier's Civilization V
