Chief design officer Patrick Soderlund discusses EA's current thinking around monetization and its future ambitions for streaming.
How about no lootboxes EA. Crazy thought right?
It is a crazy thought as it won't go well with shareholders. It's a business after all.
Yea, sell the whole game for x amount of money used to be the business, gaming is becoming a mess, pay 60 bucks for 2/3 of a game and pay a lot more for the rest.
EA is without a doubt living in a vacuum.
If their games sell isn't that all what matters? It's the same concept many have here about blocking crossplay and cross progression, that's it's all about sales. So as long as the shareholders see growth then I guess EA can live in a vacuum as well.
It's great EA are being called out for their BS. But will Any of this hit R*? The prices online are insane.
You know EA, I'd respect you a little bit more if you just came out and said, "we just want all of the money we can suck out of your wallets." That would be nice... At least then I could say they were honest about their BS practices.
Fair is not putting loot boxes in full priced games.
I think people need a year off from buying EA products and services, just so that bubble that they are in burst and they can wake up. You see if people dont buy Star Wars Battlefront 2, EA think that the problem is that certain game, when it is the company as a whole. Sims 4 DLC every couple of months at the price of a full game, its daylight robbery.
EA being fair? Lol yeah right
