A part of me just died a little inside as I doubt we'll ever see EAW 2.

On the flipside, at least we know KoToR 3 has a chance of being made and by Bioware! :rolleyes:

Imma just copy over what I did from Facebook.

"According to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau, three studios are already working on Star Wars games: Battlefield developer DICE, Dead Space developer Visceral and Mass Effect developer BioWare."

I freaking love that guy right now. If anything is to go from this, it hopefully means DICE would be doing work on something like... wait for it... a new Battlefront. All three of these studios have a proven track record of amazing games and I think are the right choice for EA to start out with this new deal. Visceral's Dead Space series has been amazing, I'd love to see them maybe take over 1313. And then there is Bioware in general. Even though TOR didnt live up to its hype, its still a really good game, with some really good indepth stories for the classes.

I actually think this is good news. A lot of people hate EA but they do put out a lot of quality titles. This kind of makes me think Battlefront 3 is a possibility, it's too popular of a franchise and EA doesn't ignore popularity (except when it comes to their own =p).

[COLOR=RoyalBlue]Or more to the point, they USED TO put out good titles, like Medal of honor, The Sims, and the like. As of recent, DRM, DRM, and more DRM. Sure, I would LOVE to finally have a KotOR III, and a Battlefront 3, but if it is made by EA, then I may not have much reason to trust it. I am not going to install EA spyware onto my computer just so I can run the game, and I certainly am not going to install something that requires a constant internet connection to play.

If it was made by Ubisoft, then I would have a good chance of buying. They actually listened to all the complaint letters, and decided to remove DRM on their games, and to take DRM off the games they already released with it.

tl;dr version: EA = don't buy it. [/COLOR]

Im sorry Lindale, but I really cant do anything but be angry with what you just said (Not you mind you, just what you said..). EVERY news story I have read about this recent announcement, all I have seen is almost every single person focusing on the negatives of this, the bad things EA has done the Bad things they think they are going to do, and it just makes me angry.

Yes EA is not really a good company with some of its recent decisions, but this can really give us nothing but good. It means MORE Star Wars games, more games we want. EA's part of the deal is they focus on the Core gaming audience, not stupid Social Media games, iPad games, those things, but proper PC, Xbox and PS3 games. And to boot they announced that 3 of the BEST developers out there currently are the ones behind their new game efforts.

We know NOTHING about these games yet, at all, yet all everyone seems to be focusing on is things that have happened IN THE PAST. This is the future, we dont know whats going to be in the games, whether it be Micro Transactions or DRM. But who cares, because we DONT KNOW. Stick to judging the games when we know stuff about them.

tl: DR version? Dont judge it until details are announced, dont make arbitrary decisions on a good thing just because it seems bad.

/end rant

Sorry... it just pisses me off, everyone judging this thus far on the past.

I will admit EA has made some bad decisions in the past. And that yes, Battlefield 3 had 5 DLC packs. But look at those DLC packs. All of them added more guns, game modes, maps. All were well worth the value IMHO.

5 years ago they would've been included as part of the base game.

5 years ago, it probably would have been an expansion not part of the base game. Look at Battlefield 2. It had what.. 4-5 expansions?
