EA Support: 80% for Wii60, 20% for PS3

EA's corporate communications VP Jeff Brown commented at EA's summer showcase event, "This is not a business plan, but there are a lot of people at EA who are walking around whispering: 40 / 40 / 20 per cent". (Industry, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Inaccurate
[ This is not a business plan, but there are a lot of people at EA who are walking around whispering: "40 / 40 / 20 per cent." The last time out, it was 65-70 per cent PlayStation, and everybody else divided up the 30 per cent that was left. Microsoft obviously took a big piece. Now it looks like 40 / 40 / 20 - Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo - and that is good for us, and it's good for people who like games. ]

This is the original quote from the original interview. Nice try.

Wow, they approved this story...
XGamer  +   3034d ago
Yeah but where does the 80% Wii come from........
Ummm Iron Wolf, I think you made a tally error. Was it on purpose? 4/40/20 doesnt equal 80% Wii:))
bung tickler  +   3034d ago
the title is 80% for Wii60 as in Wii and X360.
XGamer  +   3034d ago
Yeah I know, I just dont like that way of blending
Wii60 isn't a good blend of the Wii and the XBOX 360. Let's try....WiiX360 or Wii360, much better than Wii60.
Also, those sony boy's who like to say, XBOX 1.5, lol, I mean if you think about it, 1.5 is half of 3, not 360, if they wanted to say half, they'd say 180 or 1.8 or....

Ok, I'll stop nit picking, lol. It all just makes me laugh and we all need a good laugh sometimes.

BTW sony sucks:)) Ahhhh, much better:))

What were we talking about again?

That should be 40% PS3, 40% XO, 20% Wii.
Someone is missing something!
specialguest  +   3034d ago
even if it's a lower percentage for PS3, im sure the big titles will be on multiple consoles. unless you plan on buying every title EA releases, then it's not a major issue.
USMChardcharger  +   3034d ago
i own a 360 and that will be all...(not rich, so it is one console for me). but EA has said that as time goes their support of the PS will be more than the others.
let's be realistic...they have always done more for sony than anyone else...EA might as well buy Sony or at least marry it. (you can already hear wedding bells) neutral my a$$
Marriot VP  +   3034d ago
yah me too, one console and only a few top choice games for my 360. I'm not rich just a college boy. I could care less about a high def. drive on the 360 or PS3. DVD upscaled is incredible enough. I made the right choice game and xbox live, and system wise.

There will be other Sport Game Developer
If EA is being soft on Sony PS3 games. Trust me some other developer will that a full advantage of PS3. EA will not lead if they got some good competitors.
EA has been doing a good job so dont mess it up. Its the saying Your Loss My Gain.

They should reconsider PS3 50/ xboxx60 30/ wii 20.

PS3 is WORLD WIDE!!!

I'm going PSWii so makes no difference to me...
andy capps  +   3034d ago
Agreed, and as mentioned above. Wii will be later for me though. The article is incorrect, the correct quote was 40% PS3, 40% 360, and 20% Wii.
bizzy12  +   3034d ago
but 360 is here now and it has a big fan base already ps3 is hard to develope for and cost more to xna help every body out and one thing ps3 cost 600 alot of people is not shelling out 600 dollars for a console for christmas and get other stuff in the process to the encomy is down a lot of people is losing there jobs while prices on food rent and gas and gas and electric going up ea is not dumb with there choice 40 40 20 becouse wii 60 cost the same as a ps3
achira  +   3034d ago
i ask myself, how can someone twist the truth in such a manner. #1 said it right, 40 ms, 40 sony, 20 wii. there is nothing what can be interpretated false. at least if you are not a extreme brainwashed fanboy.
TheMART  +   3034d ago
So actually PS3 won't be on top as you always say but be about just as large in sales as the 360. Interesting with 360 having a head start of 10 million in nov. That'll mean at the end of the 360's life cycle it'll still be on top and afterwards PS3 can try to catch up!
shoota33  +   3034d ago
the mart
You really are an idiot.ps3 is the king here not xflop 1.5 MS will have sold maybe 7 million consoles by the time ps3 comes out.ps3 is going to past xflop 1.5 in sales in 2007 and there is nothing gears of war or halo can do about it.
blindrocket  +   3034d ago
Oh brother, yet more misinformation posted up
The 40/40/20 that Brown referenced was 40% 360, 40% PS3, and 20% Wii, NOT 80% Wii60. The Wii is getting the SMALLEST percentage while Playstation at this point is on EQUAL ground with the 360.
Whoever wrote the original source article is either an idiot, or a Wii60 tool, which would make them an idiot as well.
Talk about only half quoting a source to push your own agenda!
