That's it. And likely in order. Stop talking about IP. What IP do you think they have that has value?

Not necessarily an IP, but E. A. Sports.

It's in the game!

And do NOT try and tell me Mass Effect isn't a full-blooded IP, or even Dead Space. There are Mass Effect novels, a Mass Effect movie supposedly in the works, and there was that Dead Space anime.

And don't forget the Mass Effect cartoon!

But how much would Mass Effect be worth? You're Activision, or Ubisoft. How much would you pay for Mass Effect?

$20 million? $50 million?

The argument people are making is that the worth of EA is primarily IP. EA is valued at $6 billion. How many Mass Effects do you need to add up to $6 billion?

Well, Mass Effect isn't their only big IP. I dunno if they have enough IP to add up to 6 billion, but probably half that or more. People DO line up for call of duty. And everyone has a sibling who goes gaga for the sims.
