Rockstar is EA 'primary interest'

Rockstar and its franchise Grand Theft Auto is the "primary interest" of EA's attempted purchase of Take Two games, said chief executive John Riccitiello.

Mr Riccitiello said: "I believe the company is fully justified in calling themselves Rockstar because that's what they are in this industry."

Take Two turned down EA's first approach and so the games giant is now targeting shareholders directly.

ARGH, I despire EA. It's the only reason I won't buy Burnout, becuase it;s from them. Burnout was awesome up until the point they were bought out.

Then all of a sudden, everything became really insane, and about stunts. Burnout was a superb game before EA came and ruined it.

And Battlefield, an excellent game before EA boguht out Dice, and then 2142... I mean, what the hell is that!? I loved Battlefield 2.

And now for craps sake, Sim City Societies, try and deny that is just a violent tug on the udder of the SimCity franchise.

EA, you may increase sales, but it's only due to your marketign campaigns, not actually due to the quality. That sales strength coems from beign able to Publsih the game worldwide, and market it wordwide to the mainstream, who as a matter fo act don't know any better. They might be given a crap agme but wouldn't notice.

Christ, I feel so passionately about this, I wish I could take some action. Like passive action, hire a PMC and make them use anti-riot tactics on the EA Redwood Studios. Create a hostage situation, but nto people as hostages, but their personal generator or electricity supply. Just soemthing to get EA out of the business.
