PS University writes "Since the next generation has started, Electronic Arts has been looked at by gamers as the "evil empire" of the gaming industry. Not only has the company been accused of buying up developers and shutting them down to avoid competition, but they've also been accused of attempting to monopolize the industry. We've seen them attempt to acquire Take-Two Interactive, which simply put, would have been a huge blow to the industry in the sports genre. Furthermore the company was allegedly going to release a console of their own – crippling the industry in its entirety with its vast lineup of titles and exclusivity on half of the sports genre (especially had they bought Take-Two). Also, who can forget the 2006 Madden commercial featuring the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants? If that wasn't the most overhyped look into the future of gaming this generation, I don't know what was. However, we all know the type of train wreck Madden 2006 was in general, right?"
