New online games being developed by EA.com, the online division of Electronic Arts, are becoming so interactive you not only play the game, you are a part of the game. EA.com has teamed up with AOL to provide possibly the most interactive online game of all, Majestic. To register, you enter your age, e-mail address, AOL screen name and phone number. Not only can you play the game online, but you will also receive instant messages, e-mails, faxes, and phone calls regarding this online scavenger hunt. Becoming the only game provider for AOL was an expensive deal for EA. The company will pay an $81 million minimum to AOL. However, EA's current revenue from their first online game, Ultima, will not be enough to cover the fees due to AOL. To compensate, EA will also offer other popular games such as NASCAR Racing, Tiger Woods PGA Tour Web Golf, and Knockout Kings Boxing for $4.99/month. Other games EA is developing are Sims Live a
