Game Changing News

Microsoft is looking to pick up EA!  Of course, this is all rumor and speculation at this point, but think of what that would mean.  Imagine a world where EA holds the only NFL license, and Microsoft owns EA.  MADDEN COULD POSSIBLY ONLY COME OUT FOR MICROSOFT SYSTEMS.  Rock Band, Dead Space, Bioware games (The Old Republic!), Spore, The SIMS!

If that happens, I guess the balance of power in the gaming industry will shift totally over to Microsoft.  What would Sony do?  Sony has it's own exclusives, but without EA, what's their endgame?  Nintendo would still be fine, since their system sells on the power of their own games, but Sony could be taken completely out of the picture.

This is a game changer, folks.  I'm keeping my eyes on this one.
