PWE paid $50 million and has spent millions more funding the development of NWNs. Even if PWE were willing to sell, which everyone knows they won't do until well after NWN launches, their stockholders would not want them to sell for less then what has been put into the company.

CBS would need to approve the sale and would be within their rights to void the STO license contract if PWE sold Cryptic. I would not be surprised to see the same agreement with Hasbro for the NWN license. That means any sale could leave Cryptic's new buyer with only Champions Online. That is certainly not worth even $5 million.
