Electronic Arts Will Have a Massive 2 Hour-Long Press Conference at Gamescom; Date/Time Announced

Electronic Arts will have its own press conference this year at Gamescom, and it'll be a massive two hour-long media briefing. (EA, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Jesus, I guess with E3 they fell flat enough that they realize they need to step up their game. So 2hr presser and they already dropped the bombshell of EA Access. EA looking to redeem themselves.

Thats 2 hours of good sleep to prepare you for Sony's
inf3cted1  +   397d ago
They are having one? Oh boy, I cant wait for all the vita announcements that will surely impress me! /s
TheWackyMan  +   397d ago
I know right, I can't wait to see all the new AAA vita games!! I wonder what new cross gen games they will announce next for PS4!
dcj0524  +   397d ago
Oh good. Hope it's like 2012's with Killzone,Tearaway and Soul Sacrifice
tbone567  +   397d ago
Ubisoft and Activision will announce their own awesome partnerships with Microsoft too.
GT67  +   397d ago
now that criterion games out of the way hopefully Ghost games able to produce better quality nfs

that is all im looking forward from EA
Starbucks_Fan  +   397d ago
Hopefully some Battlefront and Mass Effect news...
Relientk77  +   397d ago
Hopefully it's better than their E3 conference, because that sucked.
Team_Litt  +   397d ago
Mass Effect Next and BFBC3 and I'm happy.
dericb11  +   397d ago
As much as we all want Bad Company 3 we really need to think about the fact the Dice would still be making the game.
Lucreto  +   397d ago
I will wait for the official announcement.

If it is 2 hours livestreamed or 1 hour livestream and 1 hour media interview time.

A few years ago it was said Sony had a 3 hour conference but turned out it was 1 hour and 2 hour media interviews.

New announcements incoming :D....
Looks like Gamescom might be better than E3 at this rate
Theyellowflash30  +   397d ago
Oh lord, EA doesn't deserve more than 10 minutes of my time. I'll pass.

EA you are not a platform holder, you do not have a console on the market. STOP F**KING acting like it.

You guys have just a bunch of rehashed sports games and Battlefield.

gamerfan0909  +   397d ago
Don't like them then don't buy their products or comment on their articles, noob.
Theyellowflash30  +   397d ago
I can comment on whatever I feel like dude. You want to try to stop me?

Its a free country where I live. If you don't like my comment, ignore it. I wasn't talking to you.

An hour and a half of Peter Moore and Phil Spencer discussing the benefits of friendship.
Ausbo  +   397d ago
Has Microsoft or Sony announced thier pressers yet?
WeAreLegion  +   397d ago
Not that I know of. Hopefully soon though.
hawkeyejonjon  +   397d ago
Sony has announced theirs back on July 17th but Microsoft hasn't announced theirs yet but i don't think they are having a press conference but i could be wrong though

I wouldn't expect to see Visceral's new Star Wars game there. They already have their hands full with Battlefield: Hardline.

Plus, they are showing more of Battlefront in the spring.

yah I guess that's right.
qzp  +   397d ago
they will talk about their gay sex with Microsoft and money
Dothraki  +   397d ago
Was there any need to include 'gay sex'? Makes you sound homophobic and ignorant.
MKDA_Scorpion  +   397d ago
Of course there was a need. That's all EA is doing with their games, less story more homosexuality promotion. Look at Mass Effect 3, Look at Dragon Age Inquisition. When will they finally realize that the "gay" audience for video games is smaller than they think.

Quit making trash, start making quality. Drop the terrible new need for speed games and battlefield and bring back the games everyone likes, otherwise just fall off and die like you're doing already.
WeAreLegion  +   397d ago
Why would he mention homosexuality if he is afraid of it?
inf3cted1  +   397d ago
You must be like "Any room for one more?"
DaleCooper  +   397d ago
This is actually a genius move. No on else holds a presser at gamescom, EA's going to get all the attention.
hawkeyejonjon  +   397d ago
Sony has one as well at Gamescom 2014 on August 12 so no EA will not get all the attention but they will get some of it.

DaleCooper  +   396d ago
Ah, That's awesome news! Thanks for letting me know.
LAWSON72  +   397d ago
How about actual details on ME and Battlefront. Their E3 conference was easily the worst because it was full of nothing, despite Activision and Ubisoft having hugely hyped games this year and next while EA is kind of stalling when it comes to Battlefront, ME and Mirrors Edge. EA needs more than an RPG, sport games, and BF to beat the competition. I am not really the hugest fan of online focused element games like The Division but EA would be smart to tackle that type of game because the hype around them is off the charts

Seriously their e3 was the worst by FAR. Ugh sports, hey LOOK, SPORTS. OH YOU WANTED BATTLEFRONT FOOTAGE?

JeffGUNZ  +   396d ago
A lot of people like sports, brother. I am pumped for NHL 15. You can't expect them to cater to one group only all the time. Plus, the rumor is Battlefront is being pushed back to 2016 anyway.
TheTowelBoy  +   396d ago
I do agree with that sentiment. Youre right about their focus, maybe at gamescon they'll bring it around. And yeah I'm not saying I don't like sports games, I buy Madden every 3 years but it's just that conference felt very sports heavy and dude-bro-ish.

This time around I hope they don't finish the conference with smoke.
Very similar to the Nintendo conference when they finished with firework.
TRD4L1fe  +   397d ago
I can imagine how everyone is suddenly gonna love EA when battlefront is released
chikane  +   397d ago
if this is true then EA can go F themself


why would they do this to the ps family plus the ps4 which as been so successful in selling
