Buying EA would also result in Disney owning game titles, such as EA Sports or Dead Space, that do not exactly fit in its family entertainment image. Do you sell those off? If so, you sell off a chunk of profitability.

A question with no opinion implied: So do you think that "Shooter" games are less appropriate to the Disney image then TV shows about high schoolers having sex and getting pregnant and having babies?

And a opinion: I wouldn't be for EA until they can show they can survive in the non-Console game market. I think while PS, XBOX and Wii try to redefine themselves for the changing market away from consoles we don't want to buy the star in yesterday's game if they aren't going to be a leader in tomorrows game.
