    It's funny how people thought Blizzard taking the stage to do the same thing was so awesome just months ago. Now it means nothing that EA is doing the same...lol

    Yet except for a few people here, they still buy their games. A lot of people beat their chests and rail on EA but in the end they buy their games. EA knows that, MS knows that, pretty much everyone knows that.

    Yea, i'm aware of this and I don't agree with certain things that they do, (like the nfl license) but I get the feeling that some wouldn't be acting this way if they had stepped on sony's stage with huge news. People hate Activision too but they welcomed the great news of Destiny coming to ps4. They didn't seem to mind who the publisher was in this case.

    We don't even know all the details of MS and EA's deal yet and people IMO seem to be downplaying it. I really don't get all the EA hate. I say the best way to show them you aren't a happy customer is to not buy their products, but clearly there are people out there who don't mind what they are doing. EA is really not that different from any other publisher.

    Well he used to work for EA, then went to MS, and now is a contender for EA CEO which makes perfect sense. The bottom line is that EA is a publicly traded company with share holders. His job will be to maximize the profits of those share holders. There will be no partnership between the two companies. Maybe an timed exclusivity deal for a specific game that MS will have to pony up the money for. They (the board members) will not allow him to cut out Sony, especially when they equate for 40-50% of market share. The board members would fire him in a heartbeat. They all have to answer to the shareholders.

    Isn't that what he said? He said he didn't buy them, never said he didn't play them.

    How would he know the quality of games EA has been putting out without playing them?

    I don't see the point you are trying to make.

    EDIT

    I should probably say the point you were trying to make. Were you looking for a contradiction or trying to point out one?

    Why is it always a X vs Y mentality with you? why do you think there is always an agenda? why do you always try to steer a discussion towards that kind of thinking? It really doesn't matter but I don't understand that.

    FYI - Blizzard is only part of a Activision because of a merger. I don't think Activision has a big influence over what Blizzard does or doesn't do.

    Since you didn't say outright, I am going to ask. Why do YOU think it means nothing that EA is doing the same?

    Before you start throwing accusations about me "always" doing something you need to read the entire thread. This isn't about me and my post are on topic or relating to it. That post about Blizzard was just an observation and it does hold some truth. That was great and this is considered meaningless when we don't even know what it is yet?

    Since you didn't say outright, I am going to ask. Why do YOU think it means nothing that EA is doing the same?
    I don't think i said that the way you are making it sound.

    It doesn't matter at all. All I'm pointing out is that a large majority of gamers actually like their games because they really do put out some great games.

    Like I said, to each his own.

    Great games? Lol no, more like no other options. See what happened to nba live because of competition from the 2k series. Now imagine what woods have also happened to Madden if they didn't have the nfl license exclusive

    Singling out Madden because that's one of there greatest seeking games

    Yea, but it's not all on EA. Most of that blame should go to the NFL IMO.

    I read the conversation. I just didn't see your last response (after seeing it, I edited my post to reflect that.) I still ask you, what were you trying to point out?

    He never said in his original post that he hasn't played any EA games.

    The discussion started because the quality of EA games were being questioned and he stated that it doesn't matter to him since he hasn't bought any (people usually buy games they really like, games they consider quality to add to their collection.)

    I am not sure what you were questioning about his post. You don't need to buy games to determine quality. You just need to play them, which as you made sure to point out later, he has played them.

    You're avoiding my question. Why do you think the Blizzard announcement was great and this isn't? (Although it really hasn't been announced just yet.)

    If only Sony made a great NFL game like they do MLB, this wouldn't really matter to me.

    Otherwise then yeah it would suck.
    And Sony would be hurt/doomed. (Did I get it right?)

    Indeed. Most of my games are EA games actually. Can't live without them.

    You can say that about any of the big publishers, but I don't think any of them would be where they are if all their games lacked quality. EA is one of the best for a reason. They have a large catalouge of good ips and they continue to create new ones.

    More reason for haters to hate?

    The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced a new multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish globally new games based on Star Wars characters and storylines.

    Under the agreement, EA will develop and publish new Star Wars titles for a core gaming audience, spanning all interactive platforms and the most popular game genres, while Disney will retain certain rights to develop new titles within the mobile, social, tablet and online game categories.
