Unfortunately no, it wasn't all lifted from Wiki.

So far all signs are pointing toward that being another classic EA failure - but time will tell.
I'm also a fan of the MMO genre and Warhammer is definitely getting it's share of hype within the MMO community; from what I've read, most people on MMO-themed forums have said that they're more excited about Warhammer than they are about Age of Conan or the next WOW expansion. I'd expect EA to really heat-up the advertising campaign when this game nears its release.

I also view the delay of Warhammer as a good thing because it indicates to me that EA isn't rushing Mythic to get the game out of the door before it's ready...But as you said, time will tell.

Yea I'm with you on the delay part. I've heard they increased the amount of people working on the game, and release that to gain some market share from games like WoW you need to come out strong. I've also read from one major publisher that it would take like a $1 billion initial investment to really compete with WoW, which is crazy to think about.

There's no reason not to use Wiki... but if you're going to lift it, at least cite it.
I honestly didn't use that Wiki page so I don't know what else to say there. I did use some Wiki pages as well as other sites etc but just didn't source them within the article because it was an accumulation and pick and pull more than a direct thing and plus it's common public knowledge.

If you'd like I can pull up a bunch of the sites. Do you want me to post them in here?

Re: Take-Two Wouldn't Be EA's First Acquisition

Actually just yea, here's some of the links. I used the CVG piece below as a primer of sorts and went from there. Looking back using the EA Wiki page probably would have been a lot easier I'm surprised I didn't think of it. I don't claim this is the meatiest or freshest piece, I simply tried to add a bit more to the acquisitions where applicable.
