  1. Electronic Arts is reporting that it has published a third of all PlayStation 4 games sold so far. EA COO Peter Moore used Twitter to break the news. This seems like a pretty impressive feat at first glance, but a closer...

    I think hes really just thinking about how much many that is, not the comparison to other games xD
     
  3. Maybe the reason is because there is no other option at the moment?

    It's shocking, because gamers don't like EA due to their history. But it's a week old system and there isn't many choices. Captive audience much?

    I mean, I hate EA as much as the next guy. But isn't 4 out of 11 titles closer to a third than a half? I mean EA would have to release a title and a half to be 50% whereas any other company would have to release only 1 title for EA to be at a third.

    So, practically EA was responsible for a "third" of the launch titles and came out with a third of the sales.
     
  6. ^ 4 out of 11 is closer to a third, but the article is speaking about how many copies total, not by title...

    Golf Clap.

    Thanks EA for reminding why I don't have a PS4 now.

    Can't wait for Destiny. Damn... I need to play Infamous 2 soon.

    EA supporting new consoles from day one. Am I meant to hate them?

    Not for supporting the new consoles. For releasing beta quality though...

    EA can buy out just about any developer smaller than they are and put they're name on it, Dice and Criterion are still standalone developers, just under EA as a publisher. The ladder not so much anymore, but DICE is, hence why Battlefield is actually a game worth playing. The rinse repeat Madden and FIFA franchises are barely worth mentioning, and Need for Speed has long since had it's day in the sun, another example of EA taking over a smaller developer and ruining them.

    And for the record 4 out of 11 isn't much to be proud of, you have 4 games, 1 good game, 2 mediocre sports games and a pos racer... Yes, you brag Peter Moore.

    EA bought DICE, and EA forced DICE to release BF4 unfinished to beat CoD Ghosts.

    This simply means the PS4 is tainted

    WOW, Case and point, EA ruins good developers in the pursuit of profit. Wasn't aware it was that bad for DICE too now, I was already aware of their bullshit practices with other games, but just had a slimmer of hope BF4 wouldn't get as tainted. Looks like waiting to get it was a good idea after all, might just avoid it all together at this point, I really don't appreciate what happened to BF3 and it's server browser using my Internet browser...

    Same thing with BF4, but you get used to it.
