No. No. A thousand times no. As bad as EA can be, we don't need microsoft moving all of EA's games to xbox.*

Re: Could Microsoft Buy EA?

As much as I enjoy The Show and much prefer the PS4 over XB1 (preferred 360 to PS3), if it means potentially a return of MVP and or NCAA, I'm all in...

I really think this is a reaction to that Sony commercial about CFB. IMO that was a cryptic tell about bringing CFB back... “Gamebreaker?” If Sony does bring back CFB they’d create an even bigger gap in the market share especially in the US. I think Microsoft realizes that and is going to try and combat that by trying to corner the market with the exclusive licenses they have with games like Madden. With NCAA kinda up for grabs I think Sony took a chance and got a license from the NCAA to market their product as the game itself (playoffs and all) with generic players. *Paying players is the only thing that seems to be keeping the game away. That’s why I think coaches like Harbaugh, and Meyer and former players *Bosa, Henry, and Watson help advertise the game. I think they have the finger on the pulse of what people want... Greatness awaits!

I agree 100% with this statement, as we already have Forza Motorsport and Horizon and MLB The Show being dedicated to only 1 gaming system we don't need a whole bunch of games like NBA Live, UFC, and FIFA being moved to be XBOX and Microsoft Exclusives

Yet, everyday I read about how Microsoft needs more exclusives. So when they potentially rectify that, now it’s not fair.

Business is never about playing fair.

If that means sports games on PC then yes, do it! NHL, MLB, NFL games should finally come where they belong.

Ya I’m torn. Kiss madden goodbye on PS4? That would be a nuclear bomb drop on Sony and honestly not good for gaming. I would however love to get more pc sports games.

EA seems to have a pretty good relationship with Microsoft *with the whole EA access exclusivity thing so maybe this will happen.*
