MGM goes to Sony-led group for $3 billion

A consortium led by Sony has agreed in principle to acquire famed Hollywood studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for nearly $3 billion.

The agreement is a coup for Sony, which until the final hours of bidding was considered the underdog to Time Warner, which dropped its offer at the last minute.
