EA CEO John Riccitiello Talks E3, Online Pass, 3D Gaming and More

On Friday, IndustryGamers was given the opportunity to have a lengthy pre-E3 phone conversation with EA CEO John Riccitiello. We picked JR's brain on next week's big Expo, how the publisher is evolving its strategy, the Online Pass, EA's thoughts on 3D gaming and much more. As you might expect, the EA boss was incredibly enthusiastic about his own company's portfolio and what they'll have on display at E3. Check out the full Q&A below.

IndustryGamers: With E3 right around the corner, I wanted to start with a couple of questions there. Obviously, I don’t expect you to divulge all the plans, but I’m assuming that the big three console makers probably have shared a lot of their information with the leading publishers such as EA in advance. I guess from a more general perspective, what are you most looking forward to at E3? Is there something that particularly excites you from Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo? How do you see it?

"IG: Yeah, so are you guys looking at other independent developers out there to sign to deals? Like maybe Quantic Dream? Heavy Rain made a pretty big splash. Or maybe the guys at Sucker Punch, who are working on Infamous 2 now? Is there an active outreach to some of these guys to sign to exclusive EA deals?" - this journalist sounds like an xbot, if you want those games play them on PS3, you dont need EA to publisher, o wait you do, since you want those type of games on 3girl

he lost the (little) trust I had in EA the day he said the 10€ pass was good for customer and improving services.


i can understand the pass from there point of view but i completly agree with you, i certainly wont be getting it and what does this mean for hiring games?
