EA to Pay $680 Mil for Jamdat Mobile

EA Corporate Headquarters

Last new years I predicted that EA would shell out a billion for another game company. I’m saying that their purchase of Jamdat Mobile is close enough to count as a score. Notice I also predicted a griefer attack that took out the SL grid. I’m just wiping the floor with Cory and his wimpy predictions. Anyway, I have to ask if this is a good thing for EA. I mean they get all kinds of groovy cell phone games with this acquisition, but they DON’T GET TRINGO!!!! It will be interesting to see if they mess up cell phone games as badly as they mess up their attempts at MMORPGs.

    Except these are nearly all single player games. and only some entertainment here and there. Nothing like the scale a PC game requires.

    btw is JB still head spin doctor at EA? it’s been a long while.
