Electronic Arts will pay more than $800 million to buy two video game studios from the private equity firm that purchased them two years ago. EA, the largest publisher of video games worldwide, will acquire VG Holding from Elevation Partners. VG consists of BioWare and Pandemic Studios, each of which Elevation acquired at fire-sale prices in 2005. The purchase significantly beefs up EA's product portfolio and development assets in key areas, including action adventure and role-playing games.
