No Joke Comes To Mind: Meier on EA/Take 2

Newsweek's N'Gai Croal writes that he managed to ask Firaxis' Sid Meier about the possible EA take-over of their owner Take 2. To which Sid responds...

"We worked with Electronic Arts ten years ago. We respect them highly as a company. They're a great company. We enjoy working with Take-Two. We'll let them sort that out [laughs]. Take-Two has been very good about giving us the creative freedom to do the best games that we can, and I think what Electronic Arts is saying is really along the same directions. That's really our priority, to really be able make the best games that we can. And both those publishers would give us that opportunity. We'll let them work that out."

He also talks about thinking EA does have a commitment to great games, and that's the important thing. Whole thing can be read here. N'Gai, continuing to embarrass us by doing proper big-boy journalism while we're busy writing about Wuthering Heights being nifty, also talked to EA about Take 2 and Take 2 about EA.
