posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2191 days, 12 minutes ago
Monday, November 21, 2011 8:59:22 AM GMT
Remember how EA originally planned to include a free copy of Battlefield 1943 with every new PS3 copy of Battlefield 3? So do a lot of other people, and they're so upset over EA's replacement "bonus" that they've filed a class-action lawsuit against the publisher, according to Kotaku. (more)

Nvidia: Console Software Sales Flat, PC on the Rise

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2250 days, 7 hours, 49 minutes ago
Friday, September 23, 2011 1:21:47 AM GMT
I'm not quite sure how it happened, but PC gaming seems to have gotten a bad rap over the last several years. It isn't from journalists like me, and it's certainly not coming from sites like Tom's Hardware; but at some point "they" decided that the PC should play second fiddle to the Xbox and PlayStation, instead of the other way around...or at the very least, seeing every player in the gaming space as equal.

Hands-on: Battlefield 3 single-player campaign

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2255 days, 23 hours, 37 minutes ago
Saturday, September 17, 2011 9:34:07 AM GMT
I am no stranger to the Battlefield series, at least not the console iterations. After sinking hours of my time into both Bad Company games and even convincing family and friends to buy the game so that we could spend countless evenings going online and 'squadding up' in both Rush and Conquest modes, I gradually weaned myself off.

Need For Speed: The Run trailer shows off the Limited Edition's Porche 911 Carrera S

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2264 days, 57 minutes ago
Friday, September 09, 2011 8:13:45 AM GMT
Previous news about Need For Speed: The Run has made a big deal about the fact you can get out of the car, but let's face it, being in the car will get you across the country much faster, and heck, it's just plain more fun. And when you're in a car, you could do a lot worse than a Porsche 911 Carrera S, which you can see in action in the video above. (more)

Friday, September 09, 2011 8:13:02 AM GMT
You may know EA as simply a company that creates and publishes games, but we're pretty sure the company is full of wizards. How else can you explain conjuring up between $10 and $15 million dollars? That's what the Online Pass has helped the company do, CFO Eric Brown revealed (via Gamasutra). (more)

FIFA 12 cover athletes revealed, screaming tradition continues

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2292 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes ago
Thursday, August 11, 2011 10:17:28 AM GMT
A screaming man and two dudes who look -- well, they look just like we'd imagine two guys standing next to a screaming man would look: uncomfortable. Then again, they're probably not surprised, as the loudmouth on the cover of FIFA Soccer 12 is just the latest in a string of scream-centric pieces of EA Sports cover art. (more)

Rumor: A Mirror's Edge sequel could get cooler with Frostbite 2 engine

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2303 days, 1 hour, 16 minutes ago
Monday, August 01, 2011 7:54:43 AM GMT
The Mirror's Edge and Battlefield franchises are related through more than developer-publisher relations -- they're poised to share digital DNA. If it is made, a sequel to Mirror's Edge may use Battlefield 3's Frostbite 2 engine, according to Official PlayStation Magazine, which writes, "The Frostbite 2 engine will pave the way for Mirror's Edge to make a free-running return."

For years, when confronted with Mass Effect marketing materials, you've been asking yourself, "Who is that dude?" Trailers, toys, boxart ... he's everywhere.
