    20 mil is better than that 400 mil article that I didn't believe.

    But man, Defender Chronicles RIP everytime I hear Chillingo...

    So let me get this straight... EA bought the publisher for those apps, but didn't get the developers?

    So this should only effect the publishing of the games, and not the development of them. Right?

    probably, I'm sure EA started a deal with the intent to pick both of those devs up, but then they dropped out. Good for them. (bad for EA)

    I always thought that Clickgamer.com published Angry Birds... In fact I just looked at the credits and there's no Chillingo on it, was clickgamer ran by Chillingo?
    EDIT: Looked at the About Us on the website and apparently it is.

    Clickgamer is a subsidy of Chillingo.

    So does this mean all the great fee updates we get aren't going to happen anymore? EA now owns the two games famous for free updates. One EA doesn't have anything "free". Two they lost the developers so new updates will be horrible anyways. Three if they offer add-ons for $$$ I hope people completely freak out on them.

    This is extremely disappointing these are two of my favorite apps.
