What Else is EA Planning? A Console? Speculates that EA may enter the console arena in 2010. They're waiting to see if PS3 sales pick up first.

Hmm, I could definitely see the EA console happening if they acquire TT2. Xbox 2.0 ? wonder what that is. Ouch at the Crisis Core scores but am still picking it up though.

sonarus3395d ago

wow i really didn't see rainbow 6 getting such high scores a second time. Wonder if other reviews will be as high

fenderputty3395d ago

I would NEVER buy a console from EA. They're about as innovative as brick.

Gorgon3395d ago

An EA console coudn't be worse than a MS console.

riskibusiness3395d ago

Microsoft still wants to commoditize the console business. It will be an xbox 720 with an EA tag on it, "EA games powered by XBOX720". Could be a basic unit that just plays games. In order to get into the Japanese market, Panasonic, Hitachi, Samsung, and other may do the same with little tags "Powered by Xbox720" logos.

Keowrath3394d ago

it'd be called the X-Station or Play-Box

Micrsoft will just buy EA's gaming division. I THINK IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN. Microsoft and EA want to take out Sony. They can't win. Cowards.

If what you said is true,say goodbye to your lovely $ony and Nintendo

by Then , Wii will be recycled to a plastic bags and PS3 sold as blu-ray players, Lol

Jump in before you get owned by M$

Massacre3395d ago

Great LO score. Definitely enjoying that game. PEACE

rainbow 6 vegas is gettin good scores. loved the 1st one and this one doesnt seem to be bad from the reviews so far and i hope it stays that way.

and xbox live 2.0? hmm its an april issue so i wonder if this is true, if its true then i cant wait to see what its going to do. hopefully itll have something to do with dedicated servers

ps3 sales are definitly gonna increase by alot this year. hd-dvd is dead and the ps3 is a cheap blu-ray alternative to the standalone players AND it can play games, what more could u want out of the $500 price tag? its definitly a sweet deal

wow4u3395d ago

It never fails to amaze why people want to give MSFT casual advice on networking and resource managment. WTF do you think you're talking about when you say "dedicated servers"? Care to elaborate or just repeat FUD?

I've played on Xbox LIVE, and their is no problems at all.

iNcRiMiNaTi3395d ago (Edited 3395d ago )

yea ur playing xbox live games with no problems but its because there are limits on the amount of people that can play on the games we play over live. look at frontlines [with dedicated servers] and how theres up to 50 people and compare that to halo 3 [non-dedicated] which only has 18 players max. any game we play online runs thru a server [or host] made by the developers for their game to support everyone or sometimes when people create rooms to play against other people but dedicated servers are separate hosts [or a room] and its only purpose is to host the game which is why its able to support more people.

hows that for repeating FUD? maybe u should do some research next time so u wont look dumb tryin to accuse me of bashing MS

King20083395d ago

Condemned...final fantasy..and R6V2.

BeaArthur3395d ago
