Sony Corp's PlayStation 3 game console is now priced at the right level to meet the company's fiscal-year sales target of 11 million units, said John Riccitiello, chief executive officer of video game maker Electronic Arts.
lower price, everybody is happy. Developers are coming back.
well i hope that means better games from EA from now on
your hopes up. Its EA remember.
i hope you're wrong. and you need some bubbles kazama san. edit: @beoulve, does Micheal jackson ring any bells??? hey anything is possible
I dont remmember kazama jin is a black dude and I don't recall he looks like Tupac either..LOL
well EA is only happy cause its cheaper to develop for them and EA doesn't care about any of us except for $$$
A pig just flew by my 4th storey window, last time this happened the Flames got the the NHL Finals.
Sony backers have been doing nothing but complain about EA and what a $hit company they are...wonder how many of those complainers will run with this because it is a pro-Sony article. Business guys aren't really known for their math. They would have to almost double what they sold in the first year in about a quarter of the time. Price drop helped but not to rate they propose.
i complained about how EA has been putting out garbage on ALL systems for several years now. (in fact, i think their last truly great game was SSX3) but anyways, ps3 sales will have a bigger chance of hitting their target if EA put out better products. there's no denying that.
You're forgetting skate!
Yeah...with no help from EA at all.
And we will continue to f*ck up every game we make for it. - Love EA -
EA should just do their part to stop with the crappy ass PS3 ports now STARTING with Orange Box. Just because an exec said something positive doesn't mean all is forgotten that easily.
its april right?
end of march i think so it ends March 31st
Ea: okay you're selling... NOW we'll care about your console. We're still cool right? Remember the ps2 days =D OH you're mad about that whole first year thing, water under the bridge LOL!
that was funny.
its really sad that it is true tho when you think about it
I use to be a huge fan of EA, not anymore though.
Time to take the superior system seriously! @razor I never said EA was crap, nor did i say they are the best. Its just good to take the superior system seriously when youre the largest game company in the world. A lot of people like madden and the sports games(i dont) but its good for them that they should be getting their moneys worth. Burnout is an awesome series, black was fun, Battlefield is great... EA doesnt mess up everything. That spot as king of the screwups go to the 360's hardware designers.
We are talking about the PS3 here.. Good to see the PS3 hypocrisy in full swing! EA is the best now right??? pft..
you gotta give razor credit. he really does sound like Mr.T
lol you know thi Razer guy is such a little 14 year old fat kid thats mad at his mom that he got the junkbox and now she says "no PS3 for you Johnny-boy" ... Seriously settle down douche bad you're all over every thread.... THE ONLY PERSON DEFENDINT THE XBOX 360 AND WE DON'T GIVE A SH!T. GIVE IT UP. PS3 FOREVER FOOL
Go on take you double xbox ownin,hillbillie,dungaree wearin,cheap gold ownin,mullet sportin ass outa here BOY "You should have never have came back"
razer stop dreaming!! wake up dude!! its ps3 coming from sony and ps2!!
razer no one here has said EA is the best. I like how they say ealier this week that ps3 is were they make their least money and now they say this?? I don't care, they still have to prove to me than make a good game on the ps3, I hope, really hope they start with orange box.
Will you pull out better games in terms of quality?
but they will come up short. christmas will be crucial to them. they need to sell in excess in the states and i thin k they will. last year the PS3 sold 800+ thousand in the NA alone. and about 90+ thousand in Japan. and that was at a very heafty price tag. at 400 and 500 hundred respectably, they will have a solid sell through, if they are smart they should advertize all there games more than they are, Ratchet heavenly sword and warhawk, Uncharted and the 3rd party games for the console. and the PSN. i think they will easily hit 2 million in the states and a million or so in EU and UK combined and alittle close to a million in japan, with how they've been selling. after all GT5 is hitting Japan this december, and they have DW6 and winning eleven 2008, Hot shots golf 5 and gundam mouso as there killer apps for this year and if WKS hit's the december they will sell as well. in europe they have uncharted and rachet, Lair. (lol Lair) call of duty 4, AC and GH3 and rockband. all staple titles that are selling nicely and in NA there is UT3 and Uncharted and the marketing campaign it should be great. and interesting to see. everyone is positioning their cards well for the holidays and suprises for all it should be great for everyone. i'm looking to see MS and ninty doing awesomem, even though Wii willbe in short supply.
I think they might make it but it will be close. You have to remember is only been out 9mnths in europe. Anyway hope this means better games from EA
Oh I see, now that the PS3 has ONLY by word of mouth thanks to all its loyal fanbase changed the perceptions of peoples minds without ANY help from the BIASED controlled media, now all of the sudden EA has positive things to say about it?.....CHUMPS! just like the BABOON XBOTS. Sony understood the way M$ was going to play this time around, using the media to spread negative PS3 propaganda. Mark my words people, but EA and M$ are NO GOOD!! they are out to accomplish one goal and one goal only, and that's complete control of the industry through the media using their money. Peter Moore going to EA was no accident. It was a strategic plan on both corporations part to try and sabotage Sony. First they sacrifice a few million to make crappy games for the PS3 so as to give the "Illusion" that the PS3 is not as powerful as the 36...(oh I don't even like saying it, it makes me nauseous). Than they take control of the gaming websites to rate their games with high scores (Assassins 9.0? huh?)....right. Than givin low scores to great Sony exclusives like Uncharted, and HS. Those who are in the know, understand what's happening in the Industry. But we're just called looneys. Maybe so, but at least we're not BLIND BABOONS!!...AAAHHAHAHA] By making great QUALITY games and driving the industry, Sony will make companies like EA bow to their knees and beg for mercy and make QUALITY games if they want us Sony fanboys to buy their shiety biased games. Maddens Raiders is one of the very few on here who is also in the know. Props to you bro. XBOTS,...well you know what I'm gonna say....AAAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHHHhA
a really dont care what EA say anymore
I think EA is trying to get back good with sony because of all the bad ports and because they see thats sony is starting to pick up in sells. ps. razer reminds me of this guy
lol what do ya mean that is razor,really!
....until theylearn to respect the PS3 owners. They get all lazy and develop crap because they want to release the game in time so they just port it. I hate them. I cant wait until 2K sports gets to use the nfl names and players, so I dont have to buy madden anymore.
If Sony does hit their sales goal, its no thanks to any effort on EA's part. Bunch a bums.
They're going to spend 2008 going up against titles that look and perform a LOT better. But at least the PS3 install base will be a lot bigger. It's just that PS3 owners have much higher expectations when it comes to graphics and performance. If they didn't, they'd go strictly with the 360 or Wii. They only made 17 million in revenue off of Sony's platform last quarter, and we ALL know why. Most of their games just plain sucked.
if they make Madden eqaul to what they do on the 360 i will 4give them oh yea and Fifa
Nothing like covering all the bases is there EA??
Then EA better make the PS3's version of Madden run at 60fps next year!
