That deal still has not been completed, in part because Amiga is now offering less money than specified in the initial agreement, said Hodgson, who would not give details.
That's just awesome.

"I do believe Amiga wants to do the deal. We're close, but we're not there yet," Campbell said.
I guess Campbell is not an Amiga fan or would know better.

Ah, it's all ok.
Mr McEwan has reassured all by issuing the following statement:

"Two more weeks."

Seriously, reading the second article it sounds like those people don't communicate at all. They're dealing with millions of dollars there, and they don't even seem to have properly negotiated everything and -- uh -- made contracts in advance. What the hell?
