Electronic Arts Inc. today announced an agreement with Elevation Partners to acquire VG Holding Corp. -- the owner of both BioWare Corp. and Pandemic Studios.
Bioware games on PS3. EA makes everything multi platform
Mass effect --although irrelevant might be multiplat BTW RATCHET (ps3) has got 10/10 from GAMEINFORMER http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Mass Effect is published by microsoft. Next two games will be exclusive to 360 as well; deal has already been signed. Sorry PS3 fanboys; but Im sure you can go play lair or something to entertain you
Please No, EA's games have gone downhill, even though these aquisitions could lead to some good Multi-platform games, EA will just mess up the PS3 port like usually. :(
Bioware already has something cooking for PS3. Mass Effect trilogy is being published by MS. So maybe Mass Effect 4 and so on will go multi platform(probably PS4 and Xbox 720?). I just hope EA doesn't absorb Bioware like a giant amoeba, rather let them be their own and only publish games.
You're excited? Congrats, you're excited for an EA game. The games will be given strict deadlines and rushed. Key members from both will leave and probably start a new. There's nothing to get excited about, it's over.
everyone better respect. They could easily decide who wins the console wars if they wanted to.
So says the PS3 fanboy that was bashing EA a few weeks ago because of their sloppy ports for the PlayStation 3 video game console. Now you want the same people you told EA was trash to respect them now? Wow! A major twist of events today on N4G.com!!
Bloody Sinner, just look at em. You can practically smell the spit bubbles foaming from their mouths as they drool on their mother's keyboard. Enjoy it fanboys, but I could care less whether or not Bioware produces games that are multiplat. All I want is QUALITY games. If EA can still uphold Bioware's outstanding image than fine. Let it be. If NOT, @#$! em.
OMG, Please NO. This ugly EA is eating everything and forcing them into making yearly games. I hope this is untrue because I really don't want to see BioWare ruined.
couldn't agree more.....I am tired of EA
uh-oh I hope this doesn't screw up the Sonic RPG for DS Bioware is making. EA is cool and all but big corporations usually go for what they know will sell rather than creating something new that might sell.
Sony better start kissing up to EA, Because you know MS will.
they still have Peter Moore in their pocket no doubt
well so far, from checking EA's website, and countless other websites no one else is talking about this, and Biowares website says that their independent nvm its real
And thus does the empire expand. Behold, the new Digital Roman Empire.
how about i hate EA with a passion?
Mass Effect is a trilogy and I'm glad MS has that all wraped up for the 360. But beyond that, I don't hate EA but I also think their multiplatform stuff can be garbage most of the time. And their yearly sports rehashes are an absolute insult. I guess they got ticked with Activision's latest acquisitions and decided to do a bit more of it's own.
I always have ever since the 16-bit days. If true I guess fans can say goodbye to "quality" from Bioware. And PS3 fans can look forward to more [email protected] "ports".
I hit the disagree button by accident.
Another exclusive Microsoft lost in Mass Effect. PS3 should be getting a port of this game. When EA wants to, they will make a good port of a game. Check fight night for ps3. With Halo 3 possibly being ported and/or Halo 4 coming to PS3, Mass effect will be a devastating blow once it comes to PS3. P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
Microsoft owns the rights to Mass Effect you idiot. So.... When are you expecting Halo for Ps3?
"When EA wants to, they will make a good port of a game." Thats the problem! adding to that considering the recent events occurring between Msoft and EA, this probably wont change much. I just hope EA lets bioware do its own thing. And since you had trouble reading about bungie going independent, Halo wont be going to sony since Msoft owns the rights to it, unless they say its ok. Whats different is that if Bungie wants to make a game outside of halo, it doesn't mean they have to be exclusive to Microsoft.
your a little @#$%, aren't you. Every single day, you come in Xbox threads and post racist, irrelevant sh!t that no one wants to here. Jeez, there's an article about PS 3 expanding their online store- you could post there... but nuh-huh, NO, you post here rambling about false facts. Thank God, Lex held it down. Mass Effect is still exlusive. Big Woop. More IMPORTANTLY, the quality of the game is still intact. HURRAY!!
Sorry Lex, Bioware owns the rights to Mass Effect. This isn't like Halo or Gears of War. Also know: EA funds and publishes Bioware's games. That's the point of the deal...
at least they could fit it on one disk (run ducking)...
Omg, f'n EA. They're like the AT&T of the video game world.
Why didnt MS buy them? Or Sony? Just not EA
Microsoft buys EA xD lol j/k.... This is terrible news D: Bioware + EA = me D:
F()CK NOOO! What is wrong with EA? They're like the richest [email protected] game company on the planet- why do they need to do this. The creativity, the innovation. All gone. Well, all I got to say is this. EA had better not screw up Bioware's ideas. This had better be a "we own you, but you can do as you please" type of relationship. If not, goodbye Bioware. I really missed your quality games (Give EA hell for me, though).
are you Ps3 Fans sure you shoild be saying and hoping Mass Effect will be ported? Because We all know it isn't gonna happen because of Publishing Rights You guys really love getting great Promises and crushed hopes the very next day don't you?...... Ps3fans are the Emos of the gaming world O_o
And you xbox fans are the rat bastard d*cks that no one likes of the gaming world. Go circle jerk to Halo please. Honestly, who do you think you are inciting and generalizing like that?
coming from a PS3 fan like yourself, I could see why you might see us that way. I don't understand, however, how you could actually speak for the gaming community as a whole. You see, gaming implies that you play games. Gaming WORLD, therefore, is a community that is serious about playing games. It necessarily follows that the gaming community LOVES the 360 since its the only console that produces the most quality games. Lair? MotorStorm? Heveanly Sword? Like I said, you can't really talk for the gaming community. Just keep it to yourself. Edit: OK, I see you added "who do you think you are generalizing like that". I guess your original comment was meant to fight fire w/ fire. My mistake.
