EA Admits to botching acquisitions of Westwood, Bullfrog. Somewhere Richard Garriot Shrugs

by: Chuck -
At the D.I.C.E Summit this weekend, EA CEO John Riccitiello admitted that EA "blew it" when it acquired Bullfrog and Westwood.  It's a nice admission but he leaves out the complete mess they made out of Origin Systems when they bought them in 1992.  I know I'm a bit of an Origin fanboy but what they did to Richard Garriott and company pales to the transgressions committed to Bullfrog and Westwood.  I could go on about the greatness of the Ultima and Wing Commander series but it's just going to come off as the nattering of an bitter old school PC gamer.
