The world ends. Razz

But seriously, I think EA would just reject that offer since they are so big.

No I don't think Microsoft will ever completely buy out EA, they don't have the spare cash for it and EA are too big of a publisher.

It would create a monopoly of sorts. Not going to happen.


Battlefield series
Burnout series
Command & Conquer series
FIFA series
Fight Night series
Madden NFL series
NHL series
Medal of Honor series
NBA Live series
Need for Speed series
Rock Band series
The Sims series
Mass Effect series

Imagine those series being exclusive to the next Xbox, no chance.

Well MS probably could afford EA seeing as how rich they are(they make 1 billion alone with xbl each year) but I doubt they would want to spend the money for it.

Guys, this isn't about if M$ can buy EA. It's about what would happen if they did.

What's the point of thinking about a impossible hypothetical situation. If Microsoft did, they would rule the gaming industry.

If you're a 360 gamer, it's hard to find the bad side in that.

No a monopoly is always bad, regardless of who the monopolist is.

EA is stubborn though
