GameZone: "Of all the Xbox One and PS4 games sold in the "Western World" in the fiscal fourth quarter ending March 31, 2014, 40 percent were EA titles."
Titanfall, BF4 and FIFA absolutely dominated. Those digital sales are crazy. Wish they had broken down the Digital Sales by platform, very curious to see the ratios between PC, X1 and PS4 for digital sales. PC is pretty much digital only by now so I am guessing they account for a large portion of them, but have to wonder just how much. Good for EA, now spend that money on fixing Battlefield :D
Nevermind, those digital sales are based on mobile apps it appears.
It's scary that we all hate EA, yet they control so much about what games we play.
WE don't all Hate EA. I like Still play their games occasionally, I just can't stand their lack of progression and the fact they could achieve so much more, but choose not to.
I wonder what percent of the profits went to fixing their games/servers and what percent went to the Bond villains that are running the company?
I wonder what percent of the people who voted EA worst company still bought their games.
@MysticStrummer I knew not the depths of their Evil-Arts before I experienced bf4 for myself. I wish I could go back in time so I could vote against them and not give them my money, and to warn others of what awaited them. I was a gamer starved for next-gen games, vulnerable and alone I even ignored dice's strangely absurd past failures and had false hopes that they had learned from it and cared about their work if not their players.
lol I'm actually of the opinion that anyone who voted them worst company has a very tenuous grasp on reality because there are many worse companies. I have more than a few EA titles in my collection, though none from the current gen yet.
Well, I have 5 games for XB1 and PS4 and two of them are made by EA.
One does not simply walk into an EA title. Its pretty gates are guarded by more than just bugs. There is lag there that does not sleep, and the accountability is ever missing.
That's because there aren't too many games out now frankly...and EA, like Activision, has it's hands in quite a few pots at the moment.
Yeah, that would be because their isn't shit out right now for PS4. I actually traded in Infamous and COD for MLB the Show today and I don't even like/care about baseball. I'm just craving a game to come along, BF4 was pretty fun at one time, but I haven't touched that game since I last tried the Navy DLC and the lag/rubberbanding was awful. I need NHL 15 to come out ASAP on PS4.
I played Stick it to the man today from PS+ and it seemed decent enough to eat a few hours but ya Im hoping Watchdogs is good. I enjoy watching baseball not playing it so much sadly
Even Watchdogs won't do it for my PS4 because I'll get that on computer. I need a good exclusive like the Last of Us to come as I never played that one yet.
Ahh true that not sure why I'm getting Watch Dogs for PS4 when my PC can play it better. I guess maybe comparing it with AC which I always prefer on consoles. Ahh your def in a for a treat if you haven't play TLoU yet. Hoping some surprise early releases are announced at E3
for now, since EA is like...professionals in f'ing over devs for the sake of a deadline :D
I no longer support EA after they destroyed football games and mass effect. Also, they force feed shooters to the robots
I only got BF4 because the regular PS4 bundle was sold out and it was the only one left besides the Knack one. I'd gladly be playing the game if it wasn't a broken piece of poop. That being said, I'd already trade it in if there were more games, but its early and there isn't really anything worth trading it in for.... (I have InFamous, Killzone, COD, MGS)
But, EA is the worst company in America! Looks like a lot of people love them.
Sad really. Wonder who these people are that keep defending EA and enabling them to keep up so many shady practices. Great job guys.
Sadly, EA is still a cornerstone of our industry. Love them or not, they DO have franchises that appeal to the masses. Between their sports franchises, their shooters, and the games that they managed to acquire, they have a LOT to offer. Having said that, they ARE arrogant as all get out and really seem to be in the position of not having to care about the little guy (whether that be gamers or small publishers) because those games pretty much sustain them regardless of quality. I can't say that I would want EA completely out of the industry simply because it brings in TONS of money for the industry and holds some really good IP. However, they DO need to change their attitude. If you honestly don't like them, vote with your wallet or at least be more selective about your purchases. They are by far NOT the most "evil" company around. That should be reserved for companies that are...you know...evil. Those that are selling products that are truly dangerous to us. However, in this industry, the ARE powerful and it's how they are choosing to use their power NOW that gives them that perception.
I've got the PS4 and XB1. Between the two, I have bought retail releases: Titanfall (EA), Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (EA), Assassin's Creed IV (Ubisoft), Dead Rysing 3 (Capcom) Ryse (Microsoft?), Need For Speed: Rivals (EA), Madden 25 (EA, still doesn't work right btw), and Lego Marvel (Warner). Thats 4 out of 8. I have planned on getting Killzone and Infamous, but haven't gotten around to them yet, but even with them, I would have been at %40 EA. And other than Madden, which is basically broken for us on the XB1, the other 3 were very good games that didn't have any significant issues, but were a lot of fun.
I'm not surprised..I buy lots of their games each year, especially Fifa. I used to be PES mad, but as time went on they stood still & EA took up the reigns & this next gen version is by far the best football game I've ever played. Then there's B4, which is a complete mess, especially online. EA like most companies have good & bad games, no different to any company really.
