Electronic Arts to be Bought by South Korean Company?

Interesting. According to a report on Bloomberg, originating from the South Korean media, MMO publisher Nexon is interested in a takeover of Electronic Arts.

While details were thin, the Bloomberg report did mention EA's shares jumped 6% on the news.

Nexon is the publisher of games like Maple Story.

Neither Nexon nor EA is willing to comment on what both companies call "rumor and speculation".
