Ubisoft: 'Wii Will Beat EA'

EA and France-based Ubisoft have been at odds for some time now. In December 2004, mega-publisher EA bought a 20 percent stake in Ubisoft-a move that the house of Rayman regarded as a "hostile takeover" of Sam Fisher proportions.

Ubisoft vowed to stay independent at the time, and it plans to keep it that way. "Our goal is not to sell to EA but to beat EA," said Laurent Detoc (pictured), president of Ubisoft North America in a Reuters interview this week.

coming from anyone really. The 360 is a gimik, new xbox. the ps3 is a gimik, new ps2... you know.

back to the subject EA does make the same game but guess what everyone buys em. Even you guys and you even get to use the same way to play them too. Double trouble. Ubi I do like they have wonderful franchises but fact of the matter is EA is here to stay... unless some crazy child porn thing is found in a game or something like that

ps3 is a step way way ahead of ps2....
wii is game cube with a new stick to dance with...

Really guys, I want EA to die and all but there's just one fact you might be overlooking. People buy Madden and other sports games because their there and their the newest game that no other developer can make.

Normal consumers don't realize how much EA is screwing them every year. And since EA will continue to make money they won't stop what their doing.
