Disney Wants EA

EA were in the takeover news most of this year due to their many failed bids to acquire Take Two Interactive. Howveer there are now rumours spreading round in the Wall Street Journel saying that Disney would be prepared to make a bid for EA. The rumours began after a Disney spokesperson claimed that an attractive and strategic purchase would be better for the company rather than developing more in house games. Due to EA's stock being so low at the moment people instantly begin to reach the conclusion that EA would be the target.

But what would this mean for the games industry, could Disney truly understand the way main stream gaming worked to continue the success EA have had?

However this is just speculation and maybe something will come of it or maybe it will just fade away.
