Finally someone steps up to EA and their attempts to monopolize the gaming industry, thank you Valve and Gabe.

Burned

EA, buying out your favorite game studios since westwood


#3

Saw this earlier. Good on ya, Valve. They already got their money grubbing penis firmly entrenched in Bioware’s ass, it’s nice to know Gabe keeps a knife handy.


#4

Yeah, Valve! Yeah SCIENCE!


#5

This won’t ever happen obviously, but if EA ever bought out valve I’m sure BM would have been shut down in a heartbeat.


#6

Oh yeah, because EA is money hungry. Damn. Now I really do appreciate Valve.


#7

Hell yeah! That’s a pretty good word, “disintegrate.” Good for Valve, shove it up EA’s asses.

I’m sure they’d ask to bring them in and have it as a payed product. If they disagree, then comes the cease and desist.

I love you right now, heh heh.


#8

…breaking bad?


#9

That’s what I thought.


#10

Fuck Off EA,


#11

This is good news…

But the future is still uncertain for many as long as EA lives.


#12

Picturing EA as Gaston and Valve as Belle now.


#13

Finally, and also, fuck EA, Valve makes more than 1 fucking billion dollars.


#14

With Newell’s networth being ~1.5 billion that’s just insulting.


#15

I was really hoping to see Valve counter-offer to purchase EA for like $200m


#16

Man, Valve knows how to shove up big, money hungry, game companies up the ass
Fuck EA, they are destined to fall


#17

It was refuse the offer or implement the bring-a-bomb-to-work day initiative.[COLOR=‘Black’] (does anyone remember who came up with that? I can only remember the quote.)
They made the right choice.


#18

If anybody were to buy them, digital distribution of games & software would suffer a decade worth of setbacks.


#19

That would solve a lot of problems, actually.


#20

I figure they just Laughed and said no. JJ Jameson style.
