Moore: EA will abandon its Big label

Peter Moore, head of EA Sports' division, has said that the EA Big label will 'go away' in an interview with Xbox World.

The EA Sports Big label encompasses titles such as FIFA Street, NBA Street Homecourt and NFL Tour. Yet it seems EA will be abandoning that brand of games, as it doesn't fit in with their long term plans.

"EA Big will go away," he says. "It will eventually disappear and it's actually had a longer shelf life in Europe than it has over here. Big as a label is a little restricted. It's action sports, it's extreme sports - you think of SSX and the Street games. We needed a broader platform to go forward."

no big loss. SSX was the only game I bought under it and after part 1 they all sucked and sucked really bad. Oh, wait, that wasn't the games sucking it was EA.

Well if you get rid of the Big team you better continue to make the SSX franchise and not that SSX On Tour garbage, go back to SSX3 style.

Outside of Madden the EA BIG games are the only ones I buy. Well, less money from me EA because your "sim" type games suck. I am giving Madden one more chance this year and if it doesn't improve greatly over that 08 garbage I am done with EA sports games.
