Welcome to Videogam.in, a site about videogames. Read more about this site or else pay me for the door repair charge.

As reported earlier, the aggressive domination by game publisher Electronic Arts has begun to take more malignant forms. Now, on EA's acquisition of 18.4% of Ubisoft's voting rights, the latter company has formed a bitter resistance in opposition to the takeover, and declare they "consider [the EA] operation hostile". The battle continues to rage as brave men and women lose their "lives" to the two-lettered menace, with hopes resting on the super weapon that is counter-litigation.

  2. Jeez, is there anything they won't do? I hope someone somewhere finds something to take them to court with, I'd love to see EA sued. It'd be a good victory for the smaller folk.

  3. I would say I'm pulling for the little guy, but Ubisoft isn't exactly little. Oh well, down with EA.

  4. Yup. Ubisoft has grown quite a bit. Hurrah for Ubisoft. :)

    And who knows what malignant thoughts might be crossing the minds of EA executives right now, as they pop their champagne for new year? "Let's move into RPG market now and buy some piece of Nippon Ichi. And Atlus too, for that matter."

  5. Hell, why don't we just buy all the small guys? -EA

    I fear for the small companies, EA could end up buying far too much. Isn't there some law in the U.S that prevents them from buying too much?

  6. Ask Microsoft; I'm sure they would know somethign about legal destruction of monopolization.

  7. Nephtis: No, it's perfectly legal. It's called a Hostile Takeover. If your company is a publically traded company, you have no control over who buys stock in you. Since EA buying Ubisoft wouldn't create a monopoly, there's nothing they can really do.

  8. I hope one day EA does have a monopoly, and they get into huge legal battles over it. It sucks that they are able to just buy out othe companies like that. I still fear the thought I heard once, what if Microsoft and EA merged? That's scary.
