If EA can get Bungie, than they could possibly start making their own consoles. I think thats what they are trying to do.

N4GAddict2746d ago

Making a console requires a lot of $. EA will stay as a software company.

barom2746d ago

I agree

and add that to the fact that EA is still in trouble financially

Persistantthug2746d ago

They'll continue with Software.

I'm kind of surprised they haven't taken a good shot at the WOW title yet.

Awww, for a moment there I thought it was about EA owning Bungie.
Which would translate into no more Halo games for Microsoft! Finally! hehehe

Lol jk jk!

[on topic]
I wonder what type of game it would be.

dtalon32746d ago (Edited 2746d ago )

remember 3dO? EA was the top shareholder.

Inside_out2746d ago

WOW...any doubt EA is crossing the line...first whispering in IW ears and now Bungie.....These guys are desperate...

One day maybe, but that day is far off. Likely if any such thing would ever happen it would be in partnership with another massive publisher or maybe someone like Apple, but alone it is not likely. EA doesn't always produce or publish top notch games. I do respect them for giving more developers a chance than most other publishers though.

everybody wants a piece of the bungie money making pie

ShadowRyuX2746d ago

It is really Halo and Microsoft's marketing that made Halo, sure there are a good amount of Bungie hardcore, but what put Halo past 10m sales is marketing. Still I have no doubt that there next game will sell really well, but I wouldn't expect another Halo.

Well that is my opinion on the matter anyways

siyrobbo2746d ago

You say that like activision never had a massive hit like call of duty or guitar hero

ShadowRyuX2746d ago

I realize that the MW games are huge hits, but those were kind of like "freak accidents", in fact if you read interviews Activision didn't want IW to make Modern Warfare, but they did and a lot of people liked the move away from WWII and then it started to spread like wildfire. And Guitar Hero is barely relevant anymore ever since Rockband. Not to mention [email protected] did poorly compared to MW and MW2.

so much Bungie love....and I can't disagree with it all

just be sure to have $10 to play it online.

i can't be the only one wondering why the F sony hasn't commissioned an exclusive from them, am i?

palaeomerus2746d ago

Not many third party publishers are interested in doing exclusives these days. The
