Bioware is going to regret letting a company like Electronics Arts buy them.

Bioware didn't have much say if EA bought them or not. EA purchased the company that owned both Bioware and Pandemic.

It wouldn't surprise me if half the development team is planning on leaving and starting up their own company.

hopefully this means we will be seeing mass effect and its sequels on ps3 pretty soon, but i think its bad that EA has become too much like M$ what with trying to monopolize everything and ruin everything to make a profit
