E3 2017 starts with the EA Play event. 12 PM PT 3 PM ET
OK, EA let's see what ya got.
Opens with sports games.... THEY JUST DON'T LEARN You don't need to announce these games at huge events...urgh
..EA is still a company and they still need to Market those games I personally don't care for them but I'm not sure what business sense it would make to completely ignore these franchises.
You could announce them a month before launch and the sports fanatics would still buy them. They are just yearly, same old games. All this show is so far is Fifa, Madden, NBA and DLC
If they didn't, they would be 10 minutes long. But you are right, everyone knows they are coming, and those who are gonna buy it already know it. Shoulda just called this Dice's BF1 and Battlefront 2 conference.
I'd like to see other stuff but it is hard to crap on them for showing their biggest and highest selling franchises at the biggest and most watching gaming event of the year...
That's where they make their most money. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. It would be crazy for them NOT to include these games in their huge events.
@fox- why would they announce them in a completely separate event what would actually even be the point of this press conference? I'm sorry but you need to seriously take out your personal feelings from this you have this bizarre issue with trying to suggest a company do something based on personal feelings about specific properties and nothing more. I don't even play their sports games but I see no purpose of why on Earth they would fail to Market their largest selling properties at such an event. I mean you're saying they showed or they could do that but what benefit would it be to them to do such a thing? I mean can you actually even form a real argument for why this would benefit the consumer or Electronic Arts to ignore these properties at this event?
Are you guys for real YOU DON'T NEED TO SPEND LIKE 10 MINUTES ON EACH ONE Seriously guys...come on You could show them quickly one after another and move on....if this means there conference would be bare bones then guess what? That's their fault and it would show them they have a problem. We saw more sports related coverage in that then anything else. The majority of people watching these conferences live don't care for them, the people who do with just end up seeing it the next day or so by word of mouth or randomly on social media. It's seriously not needed that much. @LogicWins Holy shit...I thought you were in a coma or something. Where you been.
I agree with you however you have to keep in mind that a ton of people by those games so while it may not be exciting for you it is for them Yes they are yearly game and everyone knows they are coming. However this is the biggest show in America for gaming so they'll take what they can and show it
Foxtrot come on bro. I havent been excited for Madden game it seems like in the last decade(I'm still not) but Madden looked great, the story even looks like they put alot into it, Madden fans are no doubt super excited, same for FIFA fans. It would be the height of stupidity and terrible business acumen NOT to advertise those games at the biggest game show. Yeah fans know their coming but if EA isn't proud enough to advertise them don't you think they may lose fans due to some thinking EA hasn't worked to improve and while you or I may say "its still the same old game" as a Madden fan from the early days I can tell you those improvements you think are minor ARE very important to the fans. PLUS, they need to advertise always to new potential customers. It seems like you have tunnel vision, you only think from personal perspective, glad your just a random gamer because you would make a terrible game exec.
@Fox- buddy, stop trying to win by force, logically make your point in a way that makes sense for consumers and EA. You can't win with "come on guys" or "you don't need to" Why don't they need to market one of the best selling IPs at one of the biggest events of the year. Thats it. I'm not asking if you like their games, I'm not asking you to love EA Sports, I"m asking WHY would they NOT support their games at this event. What is in it for EA or even fans to not know or see such games that move huge units. Make your point make sense in terms of business, stop making it so damn personal based on you not liking EA. I don't play their sports games and I'm puzzled at why they would not show them at this event and what benefit it would have for them to not market their best selling IPs. "The majority of people watching these conferences live don't care for them" How do you know this for a fact? They don't care about the IPs from EA that are selling the best? ...smh. This is where I have the issue FOX, you seem to have view that is way too personal and lacks any real base. Just assumption. I don't care for them, but based on their sales....someone is watching this to look at those IPs. To not market Madden or Fifa doesn't make any sense. You legit haven't made any single point to really drive that they don't need to be at E3.
The people who play these games will be watching these interviews and videos for days. They know their audience, it's just not you.
EA makes money on sports games and that is basically their DNA, why wouldn't they show them off? It's like saying why should Microsoft show off Forza or Nintendo show off Smash Bros or Sony show off GT? If you don't like sports games then take a bathroom break. Star Wars Battlefront 2 looks so much better, so gald I didn't get sucked into buying the first one and NBA Live actually looks pretty good. Cant wait to see how Madden looks on Scorpio as they teased it.
Just to come back to this. As of right now for YouTube views: A Way Out - 398k BF1 Name of the Tsar Trailer - 894k Need For Speed Paypack - 2m FIFA 18 Gameplay Trailer - 2m FIFA 18 The Journey Trailer - 3m SWBF2 Gameplay Trailer - 4m FIFA 18 Reveal Trailer - 5m So, they are aimed at their audience, and all this talk of the 'hype' over A Way Out is just that, hype.
A Way Out looks great
yup remind me of the movie shawshank redemption.
And his name....was Andy Dufrane. Don't lie, you read that in Morgan Freeman's voice.
Looks good but I don't know if they will hurt sales by making it mandatory co-op online or splitscreen. Maybe some will try playing with two controllers at once and take it one step further than Brothers.
I got more of a Prison Break vibe.
You spelled his last name all wrong
A Way Out was game of Show. Incredibly creative design, it actually dares to TRY something. I applaud that.
I want to see NFS gameplay and SWBF 2. 1 more hour!!!
Me too! Is it me though, or is there no life at all here, like everyone was told to keep quiet. BF2 looks spectacular, and the Scorpio might be worth it just for the new sports games, but when are we gonna see Visceral's new game?
new desert strike / road rash / ssx tricky remaster
Replayed soviet strike not too long ago. A new entry would be great.
I need a lot of NFS Gameplay
Battlefront 2 is the only upcoming EA game I care about. The leaked footage is looking good though. Hopefully the stupid vehicle token system from the last one is gone.
That was announced back when it was revealed https://www.google.com/amp/...
Well thats good. I couldn't remember if the said it was gone or not.
I'm hoping for no loadouts and modifiers along with star cards but I think that's a big no
I can agree with that. Its EA though so pretty much anything they are involved with suffers in some way. Think Titan Fall 2 being sent to die. Simcity tacked on always online nonsense or the most recent causality Mass Effect Andromeda which is now on an indefinite hiatus because of poor sales. They messed up two ME games in a row now for different reasons. I want to be hopeful but there is a reason I'm not big on EA and it wasn't for Mass Effect and Star Wars I wouldn't even deal with them.
It's been replaced by a points system which is still worse than the original one of them just being on the map at the get-go.
BF2 looks good, but man they copied 2K. When will they stop wasting money on Live?
EA is usually pretty terrible with their conferences so i am glad they are on first. Hopefully they surprise today.
BF2 in 4k/60 is going to be so sick on Scorpio
I can't wait to play Spiderman on my PS4. It's going to be so sick playing all of these amazing exclusives.
So irrelevant to the topic.
Number_9# Sure because BF2 on 4k/60fps is very irrelevant
The start of the presentation, obligatory Madden, "we're making Battlefront 2," and look, Battlefield One. EA is predictably bland and lacking in their first 10 minutes. Edit: I get FIFA is EA's pride and joy of their annual sport releases, but they just spent nearly 15 minutes on it. The need for EA to have an hour main stage presentation continues to dwindle.
Let's see, dudes love sports games. We could totally go with cheerleaders doing some obnoxious chants... Nah lets go with dudes wearing Brady jerseys playing drums.
And if they did the cheerleaders all the internet would be abuzz of the SJW causing an uproar. And people like you I telling those overly sensitive haters to go F' themselves. EAs whole conference would have been lost in the craziness of the overly liberal PC cryfest.
Nah, I'd be all about them cheerleaders. No care for the SJW's brah. Go back under your bridge.
EA conference so far https://media.tenor.co/imag...
I cringed at those two idiots talking about FIFA and those two talking about Need for Speed.
Right, I get EA makes money from sports games the most, but geez don't make paint more interesting to look at.
I wish they did two conferences. One should focus on their sports games and the other is for everything else. Probably will never happen though because they know people will sit through their sport games to see Battlefront, Battlefield, etc.
A Way Out being co-op only is a major turn off for me. I prefer to play games on my own in my own time. With this game, you can only play it if someone else wants to play with you, i can see many people getting bored of that pretty quickly.
? I'm pretty positive the game probably defaults to an AI if you don't want to play with friends.
I hope you're right but the the guy on stage clearly said it had to be played co-op or online.
The guy said pretty plainly it can only be played co-op, either splitscreen couch or online. Based on the nature of the game, that means you'll want to know the person you're playing with to actually cooperate actively, and yeah, that's going to give this game a super short lifespan and general viability.
@sega-that's unfortunate but I'm still interested in the game they must have did something pretty amazing if they were unable to have a i and it had to actually only be done with 2 players. I'm ok with that. If you don't want that type of game you could simply go and play something else, I'm sorry but it's a completely moot point. That's like me saying there is a racing game and I wish there wasn't so much racing inside the game 😂😂😂
It's not a moot point, it's my opinion about the game, others will share the same view. And yeah, i will obviously just avoid it, but that doesn't mean i won't give my opinion about it.
@sega-I mean the point is moot and it, you seriously might as well go on every single article about a multiplayer game in State this , at some point you need to realize if you don't like it I don't see the point of making it sound as if this is something wrong with the game when you openly don't even like the genre in the first place. Don't like it, don't buy it
Talking rubbish as usual. I never said i didn't like the genre, i said co-op ONLY is a major turn off. In a game with a story mode you are going to want to play the game at your own pace. People will find it annoying only being able to continue the story mode as long as somebody else is available to play with them.
Also not good for me, but I think it's fine. How many forced co-op games are there? Not many. Not every game needs to be for my interests.
This is absolutely awful, stilted presenters, barely any game play! EA haven't got a clue.
Payback was very short, not enough gameplay to decide . My personal opinion : look waaaaaaay to much frostbyte Fast and the Furious scripted movie . will i buy this?? probably not if no one gameplay on YouTube can convince why i should .
I'm pretty surprised at A Way Out , it's very Shawshank Redemption and Prison Break and BioWares new intellectual property looks really interesting. So far, pretty good.
so far so good i like what i see
Could this conference be more lifeless? They need to get Tony Robins out there, or someone who gives a shit! You can.literally count the number of ppl clapping! It's pathetic!!
Arrrrgggggg, I almost cannot watch, I honestly don't remember a time when I have cringed so much. So far every presenter has been terrible, they should realise it isn't possible to fake excitement, they should stop the constant pausing to allow for non existent applause....they should just stop! Just play the fu**ing games, enough with the jumping between ropey presenters. Also, did EA not get the memo that no StarWars fan worth his salt likes Episode 1 - 3, this MP game play has left me cold.
I thought the female performer did pretty good . . :\
same. She s cooler than I thought
One of the few actresses who plays geek roles because she is one herself.
yeah I liked her personality . . it felt natural rare to find that nowadays
A Way Out looks interesting. Brothers was a good game and I enjoyed I was able to play it co-op. Battlefront 2 looks like a massive improvement over the first game.
Battlefront 2 looks like what Battlefront 1 should have been.
Did they say they gonna show gameplay on MS conference? Wow! It seems that does games will have Scorpio trietement
