The video game market is a business of over 2 billion/year. EA games mildly hates Microsoft as believe it or not it is one of EA's competitors. Anyone who cuts into their market share is and EA is a damn competitive group buying up rights to NFL labelled games and sports games of the like.
When xbox live came out, EA didn't support it as live is an M$ controlled central network which contained all user's personal information...of which EA had no access to.
I don't think this is anywhere near right.
2 billion dollars...sir, I'd handle my grandpa's balls for 2 billion dollars.
