With huge publishers, like EA, buying out developers left and right, your gaming experience is changing for the worse.
NEVER give rigths to EA too make movie games, i better like sega to make movie game, hulk and ironman the game cool grapic`s i wonder if sega made spiderman it had been better. EA i only like burnout revnge paredise is ok, i am going to buy army of 2 . if they made thire owen games it will be more good. They only want to make money.
EA has to stop trying to take over the gaming world.
EA is hurting the gaming industry by ruining other developers franchises.
Ha...this article reminds of something else... M$ anyone?
lol, it seems like the trend for these big companies are pure shopping sprees.
haaaaa another M$
what-ever your console persuasion, i think we all need to hope that all three are successful. coz if they aint, then the time could be almost upon us(when ea have take-two under their belt), that ea is in the position to step up to the table with their own console. the last five years are proof enough that there is room for three consoles, and one dropping soon could well be the time that ea make their drive for the end zone.
whether or not you like ea's games, they have some great studios, and some great selling franchises.
bioware: mass effect. kotor
and all their future games exclusive to ea's console offering!
plus games like the sims, command and conquer, need for speed probably lots more that i'm not too familiar with. their sports franchises sell loads, even if they are just shiny upgrades from the previous year, but the masses still buy them. they could resurrect road-rash(great game imo), and that would sell well on any console.
imagine if they owned the GTA franchise aswell?! rockstar also comes midnight club, manhunt, and bully. i'm not too sure what else is owned by take-two, but by ea owning them, they could finally remove any competition in the sports game department, thus ensuring that people that want sports games would have to buy theirs
they also publish valves games games now. say half-life 3 exclusive to ea's console, counter-strike, team-fortress. all exclusive aswell. it's not an exciting prospect imo. god knows how many other developers get published by ea.
and if ea removed all support for the remaining two consoles that were competing against them, i'm certain they could'nt survive without their games. sega did'nt have ea's support with the dreamcast, granted, it was up against the growing playstation phenomenon, and that did'nt last long. nintendo once reigned supreme with their first and second party games, now ea has probably more or less the same, but they are all first party! and all the other publishers would have no choice but to put their games on it if it sold well...it's business after-all.
i think you get the picture....
i hope that i'm so far wide of the mark that i sound like a lunatic, because having ea dominate things would be a catastrophe.
...are hurting gaming!!! ;-D
