EA pays $860 million for BioWare and Pandemic Studios
Today is a very sad day for any self-respecting gamer. EA is going to purchase BioWare and Pandemic Studios and is going to pay that hefty sum of money, shown at the topic, for them. No good has ever come out of any game company that EA purchases.
What this means is that the high standards we once held for these companies, specially BioWare, are likely to drop and the games will be rushed out the door so quickly that some of the copies will come with a programmer attached, begging you to let him finish his code. That and… when you’re playing Mass Effect, there will probably be some advertisement for a random rapper whenever you walk into a vehicle or an elevator.
Maybe I exaggerated a little with that previous sentence, but I’m certain that no good will come of this. And the titles those companies released until now may very well end up being tomorrow’s classic titles.
