Rumor: Microsoft Looking At Electronic Arts As Possible Acquisition Target
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/...onic-arts-as-possible-acquisition-target.aspx
I really dont think this would ever happen. Of course I would love for it to happen as I can't stand EA. I will say that if Microsoft wanted to lay the smack down on sony they would do this. You make Madden, Fifa, mass effect, drago age, anthem... xbox only and you win. Microsoft has the pockets to do it.

Bioware is really in a tough spot right now, their future is cloudy.
Yea I don't think they are in too much trouble. Mass effect andromeda while it did have some animation issues in the beginning, the core gameplay was very good. The game suffered a lot from the ME3 ending fiasco. Dragon age inquisition was very good and very well received. I'll be curious how Anthem turns out. Even if its not that great I would be very surprised if they shut it down. EA specifically bought them to have an RPG studio.

Could someone school me on PS Plus or Now or whatever it's called?
I got a PS4 for Christmas with SWBF2. Awesome game.
I wanted to get SW The Force Unleashed but apparently it's only available via PS Plus?
So could I just get a one month subscription, dl the game and then let the subscription expire?
Plz help.
Thx.

PS Plus is Sony's version of Xbox Live, where you can play multiplayer and stuff like that. Also no, once it expires the game goes with it, the only way to keep the game in your library is to continue using PS+. PS Now is something different.

Thx for the info.
Can you explain PS Now?
Sorry, I haven't had a gaming system since the PS2 and I'm not up to speed on the whole online thing.

Thx again for the info.
Call me old school but I prefer to own the game even if it's digital form.
I'm quickly finding out that owning a PS4 and trying to play older games is just not going to happen without a continuous flow of money every month.
I just would like to play games like The Force Unleashed on my PS4. Doesn't look like Sony is going to let me unless I chain my bank account to theirs.
Does Xbox provide emulators to allow backward compatibility?
