Every Studio EA's Bought and Destroyed

Undoubtedly you've already heard about EA's unprecedented buyout bid towards Take-Two, but it's far from the first time the gaming behemoth has thrown its weight in cash about.

From Maxis to BioWare Pandemic, Electronic Arts has spent billions acquiring studios over the last twenty years and, worryingly for Mass Effect fans, it's closed quite a few of them as well.

Well, **** me. I thought they had done far less destruction, guess I was wrong. TOTALLY. Holy hell, they've bought and close down over 15!! studios? Imagine how many people have been put out of work.

Man this is reason enough to not let EA acquire TT2, it would be a disaster folks. Go buy some stocks right now. It sucks though, they will get bought anyway, from the latest news, it seems till will be a hostile takeover.

Unless you are ready to donate money to take two, Ea will be buying them The sooner we gamers start to accept it the better. EA sucks but they aren't completely F'd. Optimistically EA has an opportunity to help take two become more efficient. In other words those with good games stay those with lame games do not. I really only care about 2k sports. The good news for them is at least they can have NFL license so maybe we can actually see next gen madden. NBA 2k8 has owned live for a while now so hopefully ea will let it stay but probably under a different name.

Spot on man, Is amazing how much destruction they have already caused to the gaming industry. They seem to wanna be int total control and domination of this next gen gaming with their garbage.

Wow, I knew EA was stupid and couldn't handle good teams but WOW...
Biggest F ups of EA: Bullfrog and Westwood.

They should be jailed for doing that Westwood and Bullfrog

Leathersoup3948d ago that they only keep the brands. As long as you can keep track of the names of the people who made the games great you're better off following that.

Example: Bullfrog = Peter Molyneux

I dunno about Westwood though... R.I.P :(

I had no clue they swallowed up and spit out Westwood. They did the D&D style RPGs and ARPGs... I always wondered what happened to those guys. I still miss them.

Edit: They were Land of Lore 1-3 and Eye of the Beholder. Excellent games during that time.

2/3 of their games sucks, so they only buy everething what is good! Thank's lord for other great studios! I simply don't like EA games
