Still .... we can dream can't we? Razz

And if EA owns those studios or whatever, surely a company like MS or Sony could pay EA for the exclusivity of some of the games they develop, if not every game a particular studio develops.

And even if they could buy EA, both companies would go bankrupt at the starting prices. xD

Paying them off for exclusivity would be rather difficult, since they're a multiplatform developer. You'd be paying them to withdraw a game from two platforms, which would definitely squander their profits. So if Microsoft or Sony WOULD pay for that kind of action to occur, they'd be paying out the ass.

They would have to pay more than what EA could earn on the other console. If Microsoft wanted to buy, let's say, Dead Space, they'd have to pay more than what Visceral Games could earn on every Dead Space game made on the PS3, and they'd also have to cover costs.

EA, Ubisoft, Activision, and Bethesda aren't going anywhere.
