With Jedi Fallen Order, it would seem that EA has finally learned the power of the single player experience, right?
Fallen Order is EA trying to make sure they get to keep the Star Wars license by avoiding controversy as it's up for renewal soon. Though Disney seems content with the arrangement anyway so I don't think the deal was in danger honestly and a new deal is all but certain to be reached. Heaven forbid it being like the old days where multiple companies were allowed to make a variety of Star Wars videogames and LucasArts would publish them.
What a weird article. They like the new Star wars game but fear EA won't change in the future? So in other words don't enjoy the game even though it's good because it's published by EA. Typical nonsense.
Makes perfect sense to me...
Tell you what, if EA continues to make SP games like this one then this article will be nonsense.
EA has let too many great franchises wither and die. Dead space, BF bad company, C & C, black,...
And my favorite... BURNOUT! :(
Kill NFS already. Bring back Burnout.
I dont think i ever spent time in a racing game more than i did with burnout, that game was so much fun
Its amazing how evil these developers are. This game is basically a phone-in title and its leagues better than the stuff that had effort seemingly put into it...
This game is fantastic. Go buy it so that we can get more of these!
The thing is, and please keep in mind me saying this doesn't mean I wan't it this way, but I'm not sure it's going to change EA. While it broke an EA record of most digital sales, that doesn't mean a whole lot without some actual numbers. We know that Battlefront sold something like 13million copies, and I'd think if it outsold Battlefront in the first month EA would be shouting that instead. And even if it does sell as many copies, it likely will not even come close to the same revenue pull in since it doesn't have MT's and we know how EA only likes to look at their bottom line. That being said, I do hope EA sees they can sell a solid SP only game and still make great sales as well as look good in the consumers eyes.
Both Battlefront games sold 33 million combined, and most people on my friends list returned to Battlefront II after Jedi Fallen Order. No matter how good this game sells, it'll never change EA's way.
This is what I'm saying. I feel like this was just a little "good will" game to possibly get the fans and industry happy about a star wars game so Disney will re-up their contract.
Yeah this bothered me too, as regardless of what happened, EA won. If it failed - EA would be "proven right" in their eyes, further giving them a reason to get away with the crap they do. If it succeeded (which it did) - EA, undeserving, receive millions of dollars and potentially keep a license they seemed to have no right having in the first place.
They don't deserve praise for giving fans what they've been begging for? How does that make any sense? People plead and beg a Publisher to listen to their demands, and they FINALLY do, but even then it's "undeserved". God, you people, there's nothing that can be done right anymore. Don't get me wrong, EA have done MANY bad things, and will likely even continue to do them. However, you simply CANNOT let goodwill go un-thanked. They at least deserve to be commended for listening. For once. Hopefully this will teach them a valuable lesson. And besides, the game is selling so well because it's a damn good game. Good on Respawn, AND EA for allowing it to exist, and not pushing any of the terrible crap people have been complaining about for so long.
bottom line is this game needs to be supported, for one its an amazing game and that alone warrants the purchase but number 2 ea does need to be shown that this generation of gamers does more then spend ridiculous amounts of money on dance moves in fortnight. im sorry but the state of ea is our fault we as a gamer culture did this, by not supporting single player games and flocking to f2p then spending thousands on dlc and microtransactions.
This is a stupid article. It's basically, "How DARE they make the game we wanted after screwing us (and themselves) over for so long! GRRRRRR!!!!"
