Bad Company 2 vs. Zombies - Four reasons why EA bought PopCap

Okay. Everyone knows that EA today announced that it's to buy PopCap. But why? Here are four very good reasons. Bad Company 2 vs. Zombies anyone?

The story is too old to be commented.

What reasons do you need??
Popcap are pretty damn successful with what they do.
EA buys successful companies and makes them their b*tches.
That is, if a) they are successful enough and b) they somehow fit into EA's vision of a rape-worthy company.

Happened before in the past, will likely happen again in the future.

That made me chuckle, have a bubble.

I was just wondering, in the event of a nuclear holocaust which cockroach would be most likely to survive: Activision or EA?

Not funny.
Not useful.
Not, I hope, serious.

What kind of article is it?

hmm yeah, it seems more opinionated than an article

Yea I may be too serious but the joke was lost on me. This article was a waste of time and tried too hard to connect the companies with their respective IP.

.
Just another sign that casual gaming is becoming a BIG threat to fully featured games. Look how much investment ( READ: MONEY ) these little garbage games are attracting.

This shows that the profit margin is astronomical on these useless time wasters. No story, no mo-cap NO ANYTHING.

I understand Disney spending big in this area as their entire demographic lives in an APP world but when you see a company as big as EA dropped almost a BILLION dollars on one company/dev...0_o...then you know what's up.

Worth mentioning is now you will have to sign your life over to EA to play one of these " apps "
