EA Games in FARMVILLE?

Electronic Arts has hinted that at least one of the gaming behemoth’s titles is headed to Facebook.

An anonymous source says this does mean that there will be a Facebook version of “Madden NFL”, and that it will be a “simpler experience” of the original game.

It is easy to see that, if this takes off, more of EA’s titles could get a Facebook presence. And why not? FARMVILLE is really just a version of THE SIMS. As anyone into Facebook is aware, some of their most level headed friends have fallen victim to this cyber-growing game!

Late last year EA acquired PLAYFISH, one of the BIG manufacturers of social games for the Facebook platform, for about $300 million. It became the first of the gaming industry’s titans to really acknowledge the muscle of social games, and now it has a stellar Facebook game development team in its ranks.

One can only guess as to the games to come! SIMCITY MAFIA? SPOREVILLE? YOVILLE CLUE? Game on!
