Game Giant EA Is Up For Sale at Around £4bn

By Gary Cutlack on at

Electronic Arts, the enormous game publisher that satisfies our annual lust for football, driving and war simulations, is up for sale. It's yours if you can trade in enough old copies of FIFA to raise approximately £4billion.

The possible deal, reported by the New York Post, would see EA bought by a private equity group. Two such firms, KKR and Providence Equity Partners, are thought to have proposals on the table, with EA asking for around $20 a share in order to buy the company. It's shares are currently around the $14 mark, so there's some way to go before any formalities are concluded. [NYP via Slashgear]
