It is inevitable.
Now you realise why Nintendo's slow evolution in technology benefits ALL developers. If its too expensive to make the games, well this is what happens. The real fear is competition right now because, if Konami and Capcom don't merge, who the hell can compete with EA?
But having said all this, rumours of EA's Take Two take over have existed for years, since right after GTA4's release, so who knows if the market itself even believes this shit anymore.
“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
