    Wii Friend Code: $post[field5]


    now wii.qj.net is reporting that "If" microsoft does buyout EA it wouldn't make sense, heres the headline

    Always quick with a comment, Michael Pachter has weighed in on the rumor about Microsoft buying Electronic Arts. As far as the Wedbush Morgan analyst is concerned, the rumor doesn't hold any water at all.

    In an email to Industry Gamers, Pachter said,

    [It makes] no sense at all. One platform exclusives would likely nullify NFL exclusivity, could kill off all sports and other licenses. EA's value on one platform is probably half its value to a multi-platform buyer (such as a media company).

    Pachter's opinion also got support from other analysts. Reuters, who first broke the rumor yesterday, also updated its own story with this comment from Trip Chowdhry, an analyst at Global Equities Research:

    Our contacts just don't see Microsoft buying Electronic Arts, no synergies whatsoever, and also not Microsoft's corporate primary focus right now.
