The Borg Back in the News

EA’s Corporate Headquarters

EA has been back in the news this month, most recently in this article in the Chicago Tribune, which talks about recent acquisitions and even quotes Ubisoft representatives as calling EA’s purchase of its shares “hostile.” Of course the big news this month is the purchase of the ESPN name – EA now has exclusive rights to use “ESPN” in its game titles for the next 15 years. (Sorry Sega). The Tribune article also suggests that tabloid king Rupert Murdoch is eyeing the game market. Fine by us, Rupert, but if you start a newspaper in Second Life we will tear you another asshole!
