    not sure if to put this in gameworld or....

    But everything is allowed in here, and nobody really cares.

    kinda funny read, the best is:


    5. Jumping

    Why stop at owning graphical engines? EA needs to move into licensing core game concepts. Once EA buys the exclusive rights to jumping, they'll have shut Nintendo and Sony out of their biggest moneymakers. Future platform games will have to be designed around elements such as c
    rawling under stuff.

    4. On/Off Switches
    No, not in game, I mean actual, physical on/off switches. All electronic devices have them, meaning it's an ideal market for Electronic Arts. Furthermore, it's another industry where consolidation can make a big impact. ALL of your devices have an on/off switch. What wasted resources. EA can merge them into a big switch that turns off everything. Or, they can experiment with unique new business models, such as switches that turn on for free but require a micropayment to turn off, unless you pay a monthly "all you can switch" subscription fee.
    Good idea

    According to my son EA are the source of 85% of all known evil in the universe (or something like that) He was showing me something the other day to do with sports with spoof titles for EA games. The price $99.99 (like you have a choice?)

    I take it they are not the best games company then?

    I think they should make the employees of EA and Microsoft fight to the death in the streets.
