if this is accurate EA Sports is no more!
OK it could just be their London operations and not the whole company but the former staff of EA Sports London were pretty sure it was the whole company.
Again, if this is accurate and not just hearsay, it's a shame - I remember buying my first Megadrive game which was EA Sports!
I have asked EA Sports for a comment so I'll let you know the veracity of what I've heard
Update: OK it looks likely that the closure is UK-based. I haven't heard anything back from EA Sports but for such a big games company, if it had filed in the States, would have been noticed by now.
