    Biggest thing EA and Gameloft have in common is their inability to release a game the quality of Chillingo. Developer/Publisher stuff aside... Why didn't EA buy Gameloft? They would have been perfect together.

    EA releases = Lots of love and lots of hate.
    Gameloft releases = Lots of love and lots of hate.

    Chillingo releases = LOTS OF LOVE!



    Cool story, bro! :D

    If EA and Gameloft merging, game prices are crazy. We got no choices/selections - still will buy the games, OMG

    EA vs Gameloft benefits the gamers.

    Gameloft is a big enough company to stand firmly on its own. If EA were to acquire Gameloft they would have to pay a heftier price than $20 million, the supposed price offered to take over Chillingo. Besides, as the user above me stated, the competition between the two companies will result in better games being created. Take a look at some of the older games from both EA and Gameloft and work your way up to the ones most recently released. Notice a nice change in quality, content, and overall experience?

    I would refute these claims, but you did maths to prove it

    I love maths!

    EA can buy Gameloft and then some. Competition? EA has original games, but they could care less about updating them. Gameloft rips-off other games, but updates them with no real fixes, mostly ads to promote more. And I have not noticed any change in quality, content or overall experience.

    Sorry, I'm a little slow... Having a hard time understanding you. :confused:

    Gameloft is part of Ubisoft. The bosses of both are brothers if I'm not mistaken.

    Yeah I just heard this yesterday. Makes sense... I remember some years ago EA was moving to possibly (hostile) takeover Ubi as well, I believe, but did not happen. I always figured Ubi + GL were linked 'cause you know.. French..

    Although up till now for some reason my gut said that Chillingo would have sided with Activision, so I was surprised to see this result instead. Activision will do something I am sure, but for now just sitting back.
