Gee does this mean Apple might actually build Macs that are capable of playing games?

If they buy EA they're going to be shocked when they discover they have to buy and download 12 other companies afterwards to get the full EA.

Ghastly: If they buy EA they're going to be shocked when they discover they have to buy and download 12 other companies afterwards to get the full EA.


Nah, they're going to have to drop several paychecks into loot crates and hope for that "legendary" unlock.

And the people that turned EA into the shiattiest of gaming companies will walk away with 8- or 9- figure paydays.

No I assume they will just host everything and do streaming ala Nvidia, Microsoft, Amazon, and Google (though I think stadia is dead).

Microsoft is probably going to release a low end streaming stick for their gamepass this fall. They are also planning on offering a gamepass family plan. This will be a way to boost Apple TV. And still sell pc games.

I guess any of the options might make EA not suck so much...

If i was Elon or Bezos or Zuckerbot level rich, I'd buy EA. Then I'd part it out, keeping Maxis and maybe the teams that did Mass Effect. Really i dgaf about the stupid sports games or mobile games. I just want more SimCity and to not overcharge the shiat out of the Sims with those ridiculous expansions.
