GameZone: "It’s widely believed that the Electronic Arts 2014 Press Conference was a bit of a letdown, but when it comes to their 2014 releases, it’s hard to think of a word to aptly describe how bad things are."
They will do fine: The Sims 4 FIFA 15 Battlefield: Hardline Dragon Age: Inquisition
With those they will do fine, sims 4 begins a whole new cycle of cash grabbing dlc and expansions, good times ahead for them.
And Madden 15, and NHL 15. I hear they will even be selling 'Ultimate Team' editions for an extra $10. I think EA will do fine.
I was apart of the Battlefield: Hardline beta that ends today and that game sucks Payday 1 was a better bank robbery game they should have stuck with the warzone stuff.
You are comparing a beta with 1 map and 2 modes to a fully fleshed out game. Payday 2 is amazing, but give Dice a chance to release all their modes first :)
EA has FIFA - that's all they really need...
How many titles did they have out each of the last several years? Couldn't have been much more if at all..
Great partnership with MS they will support them.
EA is never doomed ;(
Wouldn't say deep trouble, but I wouldn't expect them to make a profit this financial year. Their sports games will make them as much money as always and The Sims 4 should sell well, but Hardline so far is underwhelming. EA did quite some damage to the BF brand with the launch of BF4 and they continue doing it with a game that's more like an expansion pack and not a full priced game. They make a lot of money from the premium membership as well so if they sell less copies they loose double.
There were a lot of people that did damage to the Battlefield brand. I've played BF Hardline beta and it's a game that shouldn't even be part of the franchise. The game they should be working on is the next Dead Space or even Battlefield Bad Company 3. Do the fans a service and give them what they've been asking for, BF:BC3. At this point, I've lost all interest in the Battlefield franchise.
Could not agree more, BF:BC3 would sell a ton and from what I have read it seems that is what gamers want. But will EA listen is the question?
DA:I is my 2nd most anticipated game this year but I've got a bad feeling its going to be delayed :'(
Have you seen how much they make from Fifa alone. The FUT makes crazy money, they will be fine.
They have Fifa on world cup year, no they are not in trouble
Dragon Age is a must buy for me. But other than that, Star Wars Battlefront 3, only if it has bots. If it is another BF4, no thanks!
I dunno after da2 I would wait and see, da2 was crap and all we have seen of 3 is some screenshots. I wouldn't put any EA game on a must buy list.
I like DA2, not as much as 1, but DA2 was good. I beat both, so that's say something there :)
I hope things get even more dire for that worthless company! Until they put equal value on their customers vs. their shareholders, I will continue to boycott the brand! At the very least they could quit LYING to customers (SimCity CAN'T run offline) or repackaging DLC as a full game (Battlefield)...or maybe just ensure that a game actually, you know, WORKS before shipping it! (Battlefield again)
This whole gaming crash doesnt seem so far fetched all of a sudden.
Whatever.. Looking forwards to hard line and both PGA and star wars games in 2015 (I hope)
It's time foe EA to go away now....the yearly rehashes are very stale at this point, The game industry doesnt even respect them anymore. They are two years running as worst company of the year...just go in your whole and die already!
