this acquisition news just has my mind all OVER the place, forgive me if this question sounds stupid.
1) Just because George Lucas was willing to sell Lucas Arts, that doesn't mean that Fox is willing to sell the movie rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. Nobody has to sell anything if they don't want to sell it.
2) They just spent $4 BILLION. Would they really be able to afford another major purchase? Particularly one like Fantastic Four which won't see anywhere near the kinds of returns that they'll be getting off of Star Wars?
