Well... Their Pogo venture hasn't been going as well as people thought so I don't know if buying an established casual game company would help their bottom line mutch.
Still, Both EA and Activision seem like good fits but I would rather go with EA buying them, despite the recent controversy over the Battlefield 3 thingy.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I just hope if they sell off the games that the new owner doesnt ruin the games. Can you imagine a DLC for planets vs zombie.
Bah both EA and Activision are evil in my eyes. Popcap games are pretty good and I personally would not like either of these companies to screw them up.
I used to play popcap games on the pc years ago but they have changed quite a bit. I find games like this for mobile (epecially from itunes) they just want you to keep forking over more money to keep playing.
PCAudioLabs Rok Box MC 7xs - Intel Core i7-2600K - Cooling: PCAL Quiet Operation - Gigabyte Z68 Motherboard - 16GB DDR3-1333 - AMD Radeon HD 5450 - Power Supply: 600 Watts - SRT Drive: Intel 311 SSD (20GB) - Primary Drive: 500GB, 7200RPM, 16MB cache - Audio Drive: 1TB, 7200RPM, 32MB cache - Sample Drive: 2TB, 7200RPM, 64MB cache - OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
A bit of a risk for EA to take but with a lot of potential cash to be made playing Pop Cap mobile.There are plenty of folks to pay reasonable fees to do just that.Hopefully they will be successful... Alchemy anyone ?
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
LOL who would of guess while read the article having a big EA icon in the corner :P lol. Good luck to EA, they have their good games.
sweet that is a good deal for both sides. if EA not get them today just matter of time before they get bought by others like Active. So its best EA buys now for a little extra as they dont know full value yet. the crazy part is when you brake down the value of each game as a equal value game. i was reading on http://www.videogamepride.com/index.php? about how they have around 30 games and thats quite a bit if you brake it down for each game. seams like they paying for the name of the company. so if that is true that VGP said then popgames name will stay and they will just take over the company not change it. i personally like there games and hope EA does more good games i fear EA only allows crap games but hope i am wrong.
