Report: Microsoft nears deal to buy game developer Obsidian

Microsoft Corp. is in the final stages of buying independent video game developer Obsidian Entertainment Inc., Kotaku reported, citing three people briefed on the negotiations.

The Irvine, Calif.-based Obsidian, known for its role-playing games such as "Knights of the Old Republic II" and "Fallout: New Vegas," has been independent since its establishment in 2003.

The negotiations are 90% complete, one person with knowledge of the matter told Kotaku. "It's a matter of when, not if," another source reportedly added.
