Heh, I knew this was going to be what you were talking about as soon as I saw the topic subject. They got Pandemic too, for what it's worth, though I'm not as familiar with them as I am with Bioware.
I agree that the only way this will end well is if EA simply gives them money and otherwise leaves them alone. However, there is a lot of precedent of EA buying awesome companies, screwing them around for a few years, and then simply closing them down. Westwood Studios, Bullfrog Productions, or Origin Systems, anyone? I really hope EA doesn't screw up again. They've been doing kinda sorta okay with Maxis, though, so hopefully EA will give them at least
that much respect.
