Wow, thought someone would have posted this already but I don't see a topic of it as it would be spammed the whole time but w/e.

By the way, what are your takes on this? And do you think the quality of popular franchises from Ubisoft like Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, or Prince of Persia be affected (for better or for worst)?

All Ubi said was that they would be willing to sell if the price was high enough. The title of the article is misleading though. A better title would've been "Ubi wouldn't stop EA takeover".

But their games are more complete, so most of them dont really need patching. I personally cant wait.

I think that a shift in ownership of these franchises can result in a discrepency of quality... and if they fudged up on the next PoP game... hell will be unleashed, and I can even garantee it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif.

In case I hadn't made it clear, Ubi is NOT being bought by EA.

However, if they were bought, everyone's going to realize that EA is just as bad as Ubi. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Not yet, but Guillemot said, and I quote, "We are not safe from a hostile action from Electronic Arts, which it would be difficult to block if they make a genuinely interesting offer," and I don't think EA bought 40% of the stocks only to loose the company to someone else. My guess is that they will act REAL soon.

Ubi = better games but bad service
EA = good games and good service...

But i still think Sc will never be the same again if Ea buys Ubi

EA buy everything. Lets hope if this goes through the extra $$$ EA has will make the SvM of everybodys dreams. One thing...doesnt Tom Clancy own the rights to SC on some level?

I have nothing against EA. And yes, they DO patch their games. Battlefield 2 and C&C Generals are both from EA, they are good games and they are still being patched. SC wouldn't make no exeption, as it is a big name, and it's getting more and more popular. If EA took control, the game is likely going to be only better.

UBI does long on patching because they spent more time in it.
And to fix every bug they need to work hard and that takes time so they release small patches that fix some bugs.

and indeed the "EA games challange everything blablabla" is stupid i like the ubi one =)

i hope ubi wont sell SC because EA make more games in little time
all games (ecxept BF 2 and C&C series) are just stupid no story lines no gamesoul....

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gifso ubi dont sell, we (the community) wont call names again about you we will be sweet but dont sell it!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

If EA buys ubi that will be for good and for bad. The game support patches etc will rise in quality, however EA have the habbit of squeesing all of the drops from a original game, take the Fifa series for example. That means that "Splinter cell 18- Revenge of Lambert" may become reallity.

i think things are going to get better if EA buys UBI, cause i have some EA games(like bf2) and they got patched and did solved some problems...

I think it's true that CT will never be the same if EA buys UBI, but hey... isn't that kinda what we all want? SvM has been the same game for 2 years now. I personally don't care, at all.

i dont care either, but i hate having to register my ea game just to play online...and then it ****s up on me like, battle for middle earth, and wont let me register my game cause "the cd-key has already been used".
But i hate getting disconneted from ubi.com aswell, so like i said i could care less.

They have a new one its called C & C Generals Zero Hour http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif came out like last year. THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THESE KINDS OF POSTS!!! I've already said EA isnt perfect and neither is UBI and for those who hate EA with all of their guts you shouldnt hate anything and EA does make good games and has good service Ive said this at other posts. Refer to the other ones before making new ones.

EA is power hungry. they whip out sequels faster than a cake disapears at a weight-watchers program. Burnout 4 was crappy (for the most part), the crashbreaker in races-come on, the ability to race the entire time without seeing anyone- and still have people pass you, and the faster speed has ruined my mojo in takedowns. They need to be stopped.
