NOMNOMNOM EA buy everything
Seems to me to be an awful lot of money to pay for the Grand Theft Auto licence.
EA should buy THQ. Then they can go suck together.
On the subject of what EA should do in the interest of good games - ditch the non-Big departments, rethink the Street games back to their previous incarnations and do the same with Burnout to be given to the Big team.
Interesting. I'd rather EA not by Take 2. I think Post #3 was the longest post i've ever seen here... even though its only a quote
Why let Microsoft and Yahoo! get all the takeover press? LOL!
Why does everyone hate EA? They put out some good games...
My thoughts exactly. I guess everyone loves to have a big company though.
I think a lot of folks hold them in low regard because of the NFL exclusivity contract they bought their way into. IE, Madden sucks, and people want some competition. EA knows that NFL 2K5 smoked Madden, and they couldn't compete with the $20 price tag. They lowered Madden's price and still got beat. Thus, the exclusivity agreement. "If we can't win the fair way, we'll just buy our way into victory".
The s**** games far out weight the good games IMO. EA buys out developers and turn their work into yearly money grabing marathons. I'm starting to believe EA is serious about this "one console" generation and if they can't have one console then they'll be the only game studio.
T2 and Rockstar contract should be up soon and I've read Sony is up to buy.....man these guys got some money to throw around.
General consensus is when EA touches a franchise it turns to crap. Basically EA is like the MS of the gaming world.
hmm. many years of rehashes of the same game over and over and over and over and over and over again doesn't make for good games. (granted thats just the EA sports dept.)
