Oh My God, NO!
The world grows darker with this news as we have now all officially lived to see the death of all things good.
This is... this is just horrible
news for gamers everywhere..... gah. You better damn well believe that EA is going to make them churn games out fast and furious now. It would seem Mass Effect may be their crowning and final achievement. Really the only way I see this working out is if Bioware employees give the two finger salute to EA and jump ship for Obsidian.
