So, even though I'm kind of disappointed, I think it would be fun to see EA's take on classic Mario and Zelda games. I also want to see what EA ends up doing with the console.

This is the article I read..

So, what are your opinions? Where does EA go from here?

Personally, I think EA ruins everything they touch. But.......

This should provide a good background for anyone not familiar with the Nintendo/EA relationship.

Better pack my boxes and live in my hole in the 90s because there's no way this can end in a positive note. Microsoft took Rare, now EA took Nintendo. I'm so disappointed in the gaming market...

I'm actually glad EA is taking over Nintendo. I hope there will EA Sports Mario games. I can't wait until there's a Mario hockey game!

There are a few Mario sports games where you can play hockey. They were horrible.

Oh you evil evil man. I curse you forever, and I curse your descendents forever. (not really)

Mario has sports, he went to the Olympics several times, he plays soccar (mario strikers charged), and he engages in fist fights with  snake (SSBB)

we did, but it's more funny to keep the joke up for others who didn't yet.
