    Brilliant. So they partner with the publisher who has just announced they will be putting micro transactions into all their games of the future (but you can bet they won't reduce the game price).

    I don't like where this gen is heading already

    And a 69.99$ price tag... Quite possibly online passes as well. Partnership might just mean TIMED exclusives or exclusive DLC. I very much doubt they will go one console only, this is EA we are talking about (unless MS gave them nice incentive$)

    All in all, I don't think their "partnership" means anything more than "yes we will support nextbox as well"


    Next Gen top picks:
    PS4: Infamous SS, DriveClub
    One: Project spark, Forza 5
    Multi: Watchdogs, The crew, FFXV, KHIII

    Yeah it will be a timed exclusives or DLC exclusives. I agree. It definitely won't be "only develop for the xbox"

    At their investors conference yesterday. They said early games might be priced at $69.99 in order to make up for transitional costs into next-gen.

    Probably can play used games on the 360 but not on the next xbox due to watermark disks.

    I remember E.A saying something about their games being download only. So i will throw this out there

    If the rumours are true about online only XBOX720, then this means E.A. have the edge on download only games and this will suck

    But this also could be old E.A games being released on the new Xbox live for the 720

    The new deal may involve Battlefield4 and Respawn.

    the online pass system, the micro-transactions that are to come in effect are the main reasons as to why the only game i get from EA is FIFA.

    It's either going to be exclusive DLC for games like Battlefield 4 or it's going to be an exclusive new IP.

    I doubt Battlefield 4 would be timed exclusive. EA wants that game to be bigger than COD, and delaying the PS4/PS3 release would not help.

    Usually when a new console comes out the games are dearer, Games for the 360 on release were mostly 45-50 which after 5 or 6 months came under the 40 mark.

    Especially as BF3 has twice as many players on PS3 as 360

    Honestly this isn't very surprising. Considering EA wasn't at the Sony reveal and not to mention Moore is head of EA Sports. It only makes sense. EA isn't going xbox exclusive though. They would lose so many sales that way. Exclusive DLC/Timed is probably where this is headed.

    Never Fear!!

    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    It may not be but people will get excited seeing battlefield 4 or mirrors edge 2 running on next gen xbox with the frostbite 2 engine.
