I'd buy EA close then build it making it up of good game studios and indie devs and try to structure it similar to google or valve.

If EA does crash and burn (regardless of whether or not it is sold) I for one will certainly shed no tears.

My Stock Market take on this...

Sounds like the usual Pump and Dump rumors that usually occur when insider information gets leaked. People reacting to this should realize, if it's public, it is already too late to make money on this and you are on the wrong side of it ... You will get burned. devil.gif

I liken it to the quote from the Rounders movie during the opening scene. Matt Damon narrates as he is on his way to a Poker table, "Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in your first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker."

Oh well, they charge € 15 for BF3 DLC ... The fact they bring them out in intervals is only to keep up appearances.

You seen EA's stock for the past year? Good companies that make "easy" money usually don't have a %50 drop in price (Nov-11 to Jul-12 high/low).

This is an equity firm. If the deal goes through it's not like they'll do a complete overhaul of the company, in fact I doubt management will change at all. The firm will simply own a large percentage of the business, say 80-90%

I can only hope that there will be a large restructuring and turn EA in to video game company again. I would like to see them and their devs bring out great quality titles like they did eons ago.
