EA Exec Frank Gibeau: Betting On Next-Gen Consoles, Mobile, And Doing Right By Consumers

VentureBeat: ''Electronic Arts is betting everything on a successful transition to the next generation of video games. And the man who has to make that happen without any major ambushes, car crashes, fumbles, or train wrecks is the guy in charge of EA’s major game studios.'' (Frank Gibeau, Industry, Medal of Honor, Mobile, PC, PS3, PS4, SimCity, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Doing right by consumers, yet charging £55 for next-gen games. Stay classy, EA.

They're just going for "Worst Company in America" 3 years in a row.

Make it happen EA. Three-peat!!

EA isn't all bad.

Battlefield series is legit and they give you tons of content with DLC. The games are solid and fun.

Fifa - This series is almost always good and it's the one game they are consistent with.

They are crappy for some other choices but not for BF & Fifa.

Even the NCAA games are solid most of the time.

"Doing Right By Consumers"
That price increase to $85 for new EA games says otherwise...

"...People don't realise the amount of work we are putting into the development of next-gen games, and I'm convinced that when they do, they'll have no problem paying up to $100 or even more for a game that reaches the high quality of standards we are set to achieve..."

Oh really? Wanna bet?!

Microsoft did everyone a favor by screwing up so badly with consumer trust. Now all the misguided execs are trying to jump on the goodwill bandwagon that Sony created yet they just don't get it.
