I reckon we're about to see the rise of the "new EA". I believe them when they say they're targeting quality. I don't reckon they'll destroy GTA.

I'm more affraid of EA actually making theyre own Console sooner or later and securing Exclusives right now.

EA Console is my worst nightmare to the gaming industry

Looking at track history and EA's corporate culture, I would say PWNSAUSE might be right.

It would be nice to think like some that it may signal the change of EA for the better but history has a habit of repeating itself. It is also very hard to change an established culture and once T2 gets bought than the EA internal politics and vultures will set in.

I do not see this ending well.

The only good thing that could come out of it is for more people leaving and making excellent spin-off games like Crackdown at other studios. As for EA, they will be left with named franchises to squeeze the life out of.

you got all wrong it should work other way around and goes like this "EA they're targeting quantity over quality" so be sure to expect every GTA sequel in every 2 years if they're successfully acquired the company take over

Can't say am not surprised. Saw this coming a mile away. And with T2 share holders suing them, is just a matter of time.

patlike3661d ago

I don't see why T2's shareholders would reject it.

"hostile take over"

you gotta think a minute to relaise what SICK system we have here.

EA: "We want to own you"
T2: "We dont want to be owned"
EA: "We make you want to be owned"

wtf is wrong with this crap
