Electronic Arts- The big studio now gets bigger

EA has been one of the biggest and arguably the most successful studios in console and PC gaming. It has been around for long and has produced some great titles like the FIFA series, NFL, NFS etc. EA initially started to get its hand dirty with an in house social gaming team, with games like The Sims on facebook which is infact been quite popular. The realm of social gaming has been expanding exponentially.

Last quarter EA bought out one of the biggest social and online gaming studios, PopCap Games for $750M. The acquisition is completed and now PopCap is fully owned by EA. More info can be found here.

This month, EA bought of the fastest growing facebook games company KlickNation for $35M. Details of this acquisition can be found here.
