Ea logo standardFiremintElectronic Arts, makers of everything from cross-platform game titles such as The Sims 3 World Adventures and MADDEN NFL 11, has just bought Firemint, the makers of the gorgeous Real Racing 2 HD. This move by perennial player EA swallowing up a newcomer iOS game developer demonstrates how important iOS has become as a gaming platform.

Melbourne, Australia based Firemint’s 55 employees will continue working down under, hopefully adding to their exciting iPad-as-controller concept iPad game titles.

James first bit into Apple when his mom and dad bought an Apple IIe in 1986. He switched to Wintel in the mid 90s when Apple was in a tailspin and back again to an iBook in 2005 when things were looking brighter. Hopefully there is no turning back to the dark side now.
