Bloomberg has a video report on the possibility that Nexon is preparing to make a bid to purchase Electronic Arts. Here is what the report says: "Shares of game make Electronic Arts are trading up more than six percent right now according to a South Korean newspaper. The online gaming company Nexon Japan has contacted EA about making an offer." The report states they do not now how EA would respond, and Eurogamer has a response from Nexon saying its "policy is to never comment on rumors."

It's sad to see games going down the same corporate road that everything else has. Pretty soon it's going to be a few huge mammoth companies controlling all studios.

Actually, it's starting to do the opposite. Since digital distribution has taken off, more and more indie companies have been amazingly successful. A day or three on the Steam top 10 list can cover development costs and then get some profit. With Kickstarter, some companies are forgoing the publisher entirely.

It's akin to the music industry when people realized the big music publishers weren't necessary anymore once digital came around. Of course, huge 100+ million dollar games will still require publisher funding, but a lot of good, cheap games can still be made indie and make a lot of money.
