Ty Dunitz, of TECHi points out this BusinessWeek article which reports that Zynga, makers of Farmville, have surpassed EA in worth, growing to 5.51 billion, next to EA's 5.22 billion.

As Ty Dunitz so eloquently puts it, "EA is a gaming GIANT, arguably the most prolific, holding some of the world's most legendary franchises (The Sims alone is the best selling PC game of all time), and Zynga has been able to surpass it all by selling pictures of wheat and cows to bored housewives".

The dull masses have spoken.
