Now he's at EA promoting multiplatforms. Doesn't mean anything.

in short, he has betrayed MS. EA is BFFs with Sony now.

Damn Peter! The reason the PlayStation doesn't have X Game Chat, lol.

Ah-ha... the trojan horse arrives!

@Nwetype... EA are BFF's with anyone who will make them money! They'll put their games wherever they fit... even some places they don"t!

Umm...EA began backing the PS3 back when the PS3 wasn't exactly doing so well sales wise (though it was doing better than some people would've have you believe).

CEO huh? They're probably trusting him to escalate and keep the share values of the company in the black. Too bad marketing alone doesn't cut it. You may sell some products in the short run, but to truly be a success, you have to sell things over a long time. And to do that, you have to make great games.

Great. FF with even less quality and a more aggressive marketing campaign.

And Sony CEO Howard Stringer was the former president of CBS.

It's a global marketplace. Companies want to make a profit, and people who excell at business are always valuable. Nothing strange here.
