EA has a market cap of $5.29 billion. Nexon has a market cap of 652 billion JPY (yen). Going rate of USD to Yen is 81 Yen : 1 USD. Therefore Nexon's market cap is roughly $8 billion. EA according to its 2011 FY financial statement has assets worth up to $4.928 billion, and equity is only $2.564 billion. Therefore, YOU in fact are wrong sir. EA doesn't have the equity to buy Nexon two times over.
Also to add to the fact, Nexon's stock keeps going up while EA's is hitting a 52 week low before today. So who's in the better position now? Of course EA's stock jumped up a bit today in rumor that they are going to be bought (in speculation of better profits?).
Please do a google search before posting stuff like that.
