The OzSpot 11/09/12: EA wants to buy Valve, AAA games dying out

On this week's show we look at reports that EA has been trying to buy Valve for years, what developers think about the future of triple-A games, and more!


Assassin's Creed III
Medal of Honor: Warfighter

So it turns out EA has been trying to buy Valve for a long time…for as much as US$1 billion! That's a lot of copies of Portal. But why? Does it have something to do with criticisms that EA is not innovative enough (something that Valve is rarely accused of)?

We'll also take a look at EA's decision to include an Osama Bin Laden mission in the DLC for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, plus we'll discuss the future of triple-A games: are less games being made? Why?
