  1. Electronic Arts has hinted that they are looking for a way to transition away from yearly releases like Madden and FIFA to a single title that can receive updates and would operate as a subscription service. Andrew Wilson, EA's CEO, made an appearance on Bloomberg TV to talk about the angle that EA hopes to pursue in the near future. "There’s a world where it gets easier and easier to move that code around -- where we may not have to do an annual release,” Wilson said, “We can really think about those games as a 365-day, live service. [...] The greatest disruptor to the consumption of entertainment media in the last five years has been the combination of streaming plus subscription. It’s changed the way we watch television. It’s changed the way we listen to music. It’s changed the way I read books.” This proposed vision of EA's potential future in the games-as-service model of business falls in line with their overall business decisions in recent years. EA Access has been going strong for the past three years, allowing subscribers access to a library of EA games for $5 per month. Recent titles like Star Wars Battlefront have emphasized ongoing support and microtransactions as a way of continuing to pull in money beyond an individual title's initial release. It even falls in line with the general trend of game purchases slowly moving over from physical to digital. Perhaps the proof of concept in this idea can be found in the mobile Madden game that EA released three years ago. No new version of the game has reached mobile as of yet, but that hasn't affected its longevity. In fact, the user base for mobile Madden has only grown with the game itself receiving regular updates. Wilson seems to recognize that the mobile model doesn't directly translate to console or PC gaming, but the success of the mobile title certainly put EA on the track to try designing a Madden or a FIFA for the streaming age. In the not too distant future, we may simply have one game of each franchise that receives updates and requires an EA Access or possibly a completely separate subscription. What do you think? Would that be a positive move for the sports titans that dominate the industry? Let us know in the comments! View full article

  3. Though E3 proper hasn't yet begun, the pre-E3 press conferences have! This year, we are going to be capping off each day with a podcast discussing the news of the day with the talented bunch of people we've collected to cover the year's biggest gaming trade show. Day one was limited to EA's reveals and teases, but between the ghost of Burnout races past, a promising indie that has "critical acclaim" written all over it, and a whole heap of Star Wars Battlefront II information, EA gave us more than enough to chew over. Jack Gardner, Marcus Stewart and Joe Knoop (pronounced new-p) break it all down for your listening pleasure. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the show with us! View full article

  5. EA announced details on the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 18, which is sure to give football fanatics a reason to rejoice outside of home. As expected of the Switch’s unique portability, players can bring FIFA 18 wherever they want by disconnecting it from the home dock. The game reportedly outputs at 1080p when docked and 720p when mobile. Visual performance might take a hit if you prefer to game on the field, but at least it’s nowhere close to the downgrade cross-generation ports of previous sports games entailed. Players can participate in Local Seasons mode across two Switch consoles, in addition to Kick-Off mode, Career, Online Seasons, Tournaments, Women’s International Cup and Skill games. EA also debuted a new gameplay trailer for FIFA 18, although footage largely looks to be from the PlayStation 4 edition of the game, so take any visuals with a grain of salt if you're planning on getting the Switch edition. FIFA 18 is out on September 29 for all major consoles. Where do you plan on hitting the field? View full article

  7. The sports division of EA unleashed everything they had during the press conference yesterday. Beginning by touting the new Ignite game engine which enables major improvements in AI and character model animation, EA quickly moved into discussing the games coming later this year. Kyrie Irving of the Cavaliers came on stage to promote the return of the popular NBA Live series in NBA Live 14. The biggest addition to the series, besides the obvious graphical improvements, is the addition of a unique physics engine for the ball. Also, the developer promised to have stats updated for players in less than an hour after games are played. Madden NFL 25, releasing near the 25th anniversary of the series debut, will feature improved footwork animation and control. Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings (I gotta have some hometown sports pride!) will be the face of Madden 25, appearing prominently on the cover of the game at retail. Soccer, the other football, makes its yearly return in FIFA 14. This year the selling points are the dramatically increased calculation power of the computer soccer player's AI and the "living stadium" feature that makes the crowds more believable and generates effects teams morale during home or away games. Rounding out the sports talk at the EA show, was EA Sports UFC, a game based on the popular mixed martial arts spectacle fighting that has been growing over the years. The title will feature a system called MMAi, which will allow the computer to adopt new strategies on the fly during matches. It will also feature character models that take and retain damage as fights progress. One of the UFC officials who took the stage to talk about the game declared, "This will be the greatest game about fighting ever made." Bold words. Hopefully EA Sports UFC can live up to them.
