Will Apple Gobble Up Electronic Arts?

CNBC’s Guy Adami said on CNBC’s Fast Money TV show that there’s talk that Apple may try to take over video game goliath Electronic Arts.

Such a merger could have colossal implications for gamers. An Apple-controlled EA could tip the handheld game market toward the favor of the iPhone/iTouch, keeping its handheld titles off its rivals, Nintendo’s DS and Sony’s PSP. Apple could shut Microsoft out of Xbox 360 exclusives. Steve Jobs could name himself the next Madden cover athlete.

Time will tell if Apple’s bite matches Adami’s bark.
