EA Love Everyone.


With FIFA 14 being bundled free with the XBox One in Europe, Titanfall’s exclusivity to Microsoft’s console and the news that the first Battlefield 4 DLC will appear on XOne before the PS4 it’s unsurprising to hear that growing number of gamers feel EA have already chosen a side for the new generation and that side is Microsoft’s. However according to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau this is merely a misconception.
“One of the things that struck me this week is how a tactical deal with one of our platform partners has been blown out and perceived as strategic tilt – that’s a messaging error on our part, there is no strategic tilt. The Sony platform and the Xbox platform are both very important to us. If you look at the previous generation we did tactical deals with both Sony and Microsoft throughout the cycle. Titanfall is different, it’s an EA Partners game – everything else is platform agnostic. Sony has been executing exceptionally well on the next-gen transition. Their hardware’s hot, they’re clear and disciplined and consistent with their policies, they are showing some amazing things with indies, so overall I couldn’t be more pleased with how they’re executing.” Mr. Gibeau said before reminding Sony fans that…
“It’s a long cycle, and certainly there’s potential with Sony exclusivity deals too.”

EA Love Everyone.
