Or as GT reported yesterday
But yeah, I see this as nothing but a bad thing. I can't imagine why anybody would want to get involved in the Katamari ball that EA is.
Oh, and as far as "EA's commitment to the online market" goes:
Ultima Online - Still running after almost 7 years, with 5 expansions
Ultima Online 2 - CANCELLED
Motor City Online - Released and CANCELLED
Earth & Beyond - Released and CANCELLED
Privateer Online - CANCELLED
BattleTech 3025 - Hit beta and CANCELLED
The Sims Online - All but dead
Yeah, a true commitment to the online market, eh?
