EA COO Clarifies ‘Offline Games’ Comment

IGN: Peter Moore has clarified his comments from earlier this week, when he stated “we don't ship a game at EA that is offline.”

The story is too old to be commented.

Just keep digging that hole.

I'm sick of video game companies these days. They're so out of touch with customers its unbelievable the industry hasn't collapsed yet.

Ol_G1239d ago

Oh just you wait these company's like EA will make sure the industry collapses you can count on that

Almost every game today ships with some type of online component to it. Since EA outright stated they won't ship a game without there's a problem?

Are you sure they're out of touch? I can't find a single top selling game that didn't have multiplayer or an online component. Of course...COD being at the top.

Uncharted, Heavy Rain, The Walking Dead, Skyrim, Fallout, Mirrors edge, infamous, Ratchet and clank, Sly cooper and many others all sold in the millions

None of those are at the top of sells this gen. The brochure for Infamous 3 has indicated multiplayer...a new Skyrim MMO is releasing...Uncharted also has mulitplayer.

Online is there more than it isn't.

Its EA. They will keep digging until their money starts taking a hit. Then they will say sorry and start digging again.

It's companies like this that nearly destroyed the industry before, they will do it again.

i stop supporting them by deleting my BF4 preorder if people do the same we can see some change , but what i'm saying is a far dream and it's impossible to reach it because people don't realise after stop sopporting them we can see a better gaming world :) like the ol'days

Only problem with that is yes EA is a horrible company, but the same can't be said for DICE. I personally have nothing but respect for them and the work they put into each of there BF's they make. True innovation compared to companies such as Activision and IW/Treyarch

A monkey could have understood what he meant. As usual, completely exaggerated and unnecessary blowback to a common sense statement.

Do "offline games" even exist anymore? Even the most dedicated single-player experiences are subject to constant updates.

Just give me my next-gen consoles so that I can tune you all out for 8+ years.

That comment was the last straw for EA. They're dead to me, I couldn't care less about their franchises now tbh. Mirror's Edge yea, but Ubisoft is rising in popularity for me.

BitbyDeath1238d ago

Dying light looks like a better alternate to Mirrors edge

twinspectre1238d ago

i hope Ubisoft doesn't screw everything

Here's a quote that doesn't need clarification
"I don't buy EA games PERIOD" "...well except for battlefront"

Sounds like he just joined Microsoft.
