Electronic Arts ups stake in Ubisoft

by: Chuck -
It looks like Electronic Arts has increased their ownership of Ubisoft from 20% to 25%.  This isn't much of a surprise as EA has indicated in the past that they intended to increase their position in Ubisoft.  It's a good financial move by EA as Ubisoft had a decent showing at E3 this year.

As far as the game industry goes it is a bit of a concern as EA goes ahead and buys out Ubisoft they would own an even bigger share of the marketplace and it's never really a good thing when one company owns that much marketshare.
