Angry Birds being bought out?

Rumors are going around the internet today that Electronic Arts (EA) is going to buy Chillingo (company who made Angry Birds which is one of today's most popular iphone/ itouch games) for under $20 million in cash plus other undisclosed considerations. An EA spokesperson said that they had confirmed the deal, but did not disclose the financial terms. Even though EA has a good line up of mobile games including: Sims 3, EA Sports MMA, Madden NFL 11, and many many more; they are in the pursuit of buying out the most popular mobile games do to the fact that mobile video games are the top selling games in the video game industry at the moment. So even though EA is only buying out the company who made Angry Birds, the developers of Angry Birds is still going to own the game but will just be published as an EA game.
