Activision Blizzard Sells its Soul. editorializes the latest news regarding Activision and Sierra and the fallout for games like Ghostbusters, Prototype and others.

From the article: "For many years, Electronic Arts was labeled as an "evil" corporation by gamers. The company drew much ire from gamers, as EA seemed content with publishing predominantly sub-par sequels of existing intellectual properties, while gobbling up cutting edge game studios, only to absorb them into EA's Borg Collective. Current CEO, John Riccitiello, is attempting to erase that label. Based on the publisher's E3 press conference, I would say the company is moving in the right direction.

Good article, so true. It's a shame that Activision has chosen to only publish franchises that they can produce the hell out of. Ghostbusters and Brutal Legend don't fit with there long term plan because they cost money to make unlike some stupid ice age game and they aren't huge franchises to milk.

It would be smart if EA picked up these games, and i think this year i'd go for Rockband 2 instead of Guitar hero 4.
