    This is bad news, Lionhead Studios were one of my favourite studios and made great games. i enjoyed Movies, Fable and Black and white now they are going to make whatever ea decide they want not what they want. I know they made games then sold them to EA to publish but now its Microsoft calling the shots.

    I hope they dont lose out on their creativitiy.

    Microsoft is a good company to work for. Nearly all the games by micorosoft are the best games released.

    They should do.

    What I think (that is, hope) will happen , without knowing any of the details whatsoever, is that Lionhead will carry on as usual, but obviously they will make games only for whatever system they are allowed to by Microsoft. They will keep their name, like Rare and Bungie.

    I thought they were already owned by Microsoft to be perfectly honest. They've only ever made games for PC and Xbox haven't they? Things shouldn't be too different I expect.... Without knowing any of the details whatsoever ;)
