tilly Posted February 28, 2008 Share Posted February 28, 2008 In a conference call about the deal with EA and Take 2, Jon Riccitiel, EA CEO, explained what his intentions were for the deal with take two. First of note for gamers is that Riccitiello said “I wouldn’t change a line of code in ‘BioShock‘ nor would I in ‘GTA‘ or ‘Max Payne‘… what we would do is sell more of it.” He said EA’s distribution network could get those games in places Take-Two doesn’t reach.He also said the purchase was enticing for EA because his current company is “underrepresented in M-rated content.” Getting the creators of “GTA,” he noted, would suddenly give EA the top M-rated content in the world. He also went on to talk about how Rockstar Games was an "inspiration for EAs current structural divison." Link: MTV Games I personally don't believe Jon's proposition, being that EA is seemingly all about money and sequels, instead of gamers and feel.
