EA already has the future pf GTA planned out. A new game every year, with the only difference being the names of the characters. GTA 2009, GTA 2010, GTA 2011, etc....

EA would ruin the GTA series I'd think. It's too controversial for them, though they did stand behind Mass Effect, but it's not anywhere near on the same level.

Seems to me they are just putting it off till the release in the hope of higher stock prices.
Its not a 'We don't like EA', its a 'We want more money'.
It is that EA gets GTA 4 for free (development cost paid by Take 2) and basically can cover chunk of cost of buying the Take 2 by pure profit from GTA 4 sales.

No, they don't. Valve simply chose them as the B&M publisher of late.

Valve will never be owned by anyone unless they want to be - which I doubt. For one, they're immensely profitable, for two, Gabe Newell alone has enough dough left over from his Microsoft days to keep that ship afloat for quite a while under its own steam (no pun intended).
