Just heard this on invisible Walls, Microsoft is interested in aquiring E.A and all its games.

Imagine, Fight Night, Madden, Fifa, all Xbox360 exclusives, ahh

they should do it, i know they wont want to spend that much, but you'r right, the PS3 would be crushed into oblivion, and it'd pay in the long run.

this is wrong man they need to stop favoritizing Xbox, people who buy PS3's are loyal game fans too they shouldn't be forced to purchasing a 360 to play their favorite games, this is ****ing wrong man they can't do this yo games like Fight Night and Live have to be multi platform games, they can't be just brought down to 1 console because the PS3is a top game system too. 1st with the Grand Theft Auto games and now with the EA company Xbox is just on a real mission to **** us over

Well EA is the king of screwing people with games. Ever since they licensed the NFL, no more NFL 2k something. Just Madden.

As for the TS. I don't really think they would, but I agree with Vers that the PS would be screwed.

Sony and the PS3 will be in major trouble if Microsoft buys EA. This is not going to help gaming at all.

this **** can't stick man it just can't you'll see, if they do this they will cause too much of an uproar, EA can't do this yo they get a lot of revenue from the Playstation community, there has been millions of loyal fans across the world to EA Sports from the Playstation community, to just dead Sony like that will be suicide for EA, it'll be the wrong move to make and honestly you really can't Compare EA cutting out another company with a game series to EA completely cutting off a entire game system, like literally no more PS3 releases, it would be truly a shame..

Microsoft already said that they have no plans to buy EA. Why would they want to buy a massive company and then destroy its earnings by making the games Microsoft exclusives? Not going to happen.

Lots of revenue or a huge cut right off the top. Once they get it EA gets a big cut. For all those games that are not even sold for the PS3 yet. Ppl would jump on board to play Madden and other sports games. That's just a given.

The logic of it is obvious, it would be a move that would pretty much Bury the PS3, then its a two horse race, between the Wii, which is in decline and the 360.

It would be a stupid business decision to buy a company and the destroy it's earnings, EA is probably worth more than the 360. They would gain a lot of gamers but would that make up for the huge loss of money they paid for EA? They could just pay EA for exclusives rights for the best selling games and achieve the same affect.

rofl at the xbots :lol1:..........microsoft has the money to do it..........but its not worth it for them at all....makes no bussiness sense......their gaming division is probably worth less than EA......now EA releasing its own console?that would be a kick in the butt for xbots and ps3.....

It would cut the sales of games down by about half because PS3 users wouldn't be able to buy their games anymore.
On the other hand it might just force people to buy 360's. But why would everyone shed out all that money just to play a couple of sports games on an inferior console?
