Activision: EA is Struggling, Smothering Devs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2490 days, 14 hours, 50 minutes ago
Wednesday, September 29, 2010 5:56:45 AM GMT
Recently Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick said that other publishers would need to play "catch up" in regards to online gaming, citing Facebook as is only real competitor. Now he's spoken out against EA directly, saying that the competitor has struggled for a very long time, and may even be suffocating its studios. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2490 days, 14 hours, 52 minutes ago
Wednesday, September 29, 2010 5:54:46 AM GMT
Last week Shaun Himmerick of Netherrealm Studios revealed that Sony's rumored PSP2 was indeed real, and that the developer actually had a working prototype in-house. Himmerick made the surprising revelation during an interview with Industry Gamers after he was asked if the new Mortal Kombat would make its way to Nintendo's 3DS or Sony's current PSP. (more)

Dead Space Extraction PS3 preview: Rescue operation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2499 days, 13 hours, 42 minutes ago
Monday, September 20, 2010 7:04:51 AM GMT
EA is sending in the experts to salvage Dead Space Extraction, left adrift in retail space last year. Although Extraction impressed critics with its threatening environments and frantic action, it never quite found the audience it deserved on the Wii. The on-rails shooter was an essential component of EA's harsh sci-fi universe, trading engineer Isaac Clarke's high-pressure exploration for a briskly paced series of intense standoffs -- that 480p resolution certainly didn't stop it from being it a Dead S...

EA won't bow to Medal of Honor controversy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2525 days, 14 hours, 13 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:34:05 AM GMT
Allow gamers to take up the mantle of the Taliban in your game and you're bound to receive some ire. EA is learning all about that with Medal of Honor, as the mainstream media and the British government have vocalized concerns. British Defence Secretary Liam Fox has actually called for a countrywide ban of the game outright, stating that it's "shocking that someone would think it acceptable to recreate the acts of the Taliban against British soldiers," even though you don't actually kill any British troo...

The Old Republic's 'tunnel shooter' space combat explained

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2539 days, 12 hours, 21 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:25:41 AM GMT
Specifics about the recently announced space combat mechanics in LucasArts and BioWare's upcoming MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, have been awfully hard to come by. Rumors have circulated claiming the game's aerial component would resemble an on-rails shooter, while others say it would give players full control over their ship's movement. The real answer, as revealed by the October edition of PC Gamer, falls somewhere in between. (more)

Wednesday, August 11, 2010 8:18:46 AM GMT
Sports is the ultimate common ground for the common man. From the salt-of-the-earth mechanic to the high-powered Wall Street exec, sports has always broken social barriers and given all (well, most) of us something to relate to each other with. Sports games, on the other hand: not so much. (more)

FIFA 11 for Wii to include street soccer mode

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2553 days, 13 hours, 28 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 28, 2010 7:18:58 AM GMT
Those planning on signing up for the Wii version of EA's FIFA 11 will find an exclusive game mode in the package: street soccer. It takes players to the streets of major cities around the world for less official games of footy, in places like Brazil, France and London. The mode will allow players to "use the wall to jump past defenders or bank passes to teammates" and select from a set of different match types, like First to Score, Tug of War and Timed games.

Friday, July 23, 2010 8:49:50 AM GMT
There aren't many options out there for the modern-day Napoleon on the go. When your skills revolve around conquering and dominating everything around you, there just aren't many ways to apply your practice while you're commuting to work or standing in line at the coffee shop, waiting for your half-caf double mocha frap. But now that EA has released Risk: The Official Game on the iPhone and iPod Touch, hopefully you can get some relief. (more)

Report: EA selling a 15% stake in Ubisoft

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2564 days, 11 hours, 30 minutes ago
Saturday, July 17, 2010 9:17:09 AM GMT
EA has been sitting on a good chunk of Ubisoft stock for a few years now. It looks like the company is planning to unload some of those shares (perhaps a result of some recent losses?). Bloomberg reports that EA is preparing to offload a 15% stake in Ubisoft -- last we heard, EA was holding onto nearly 25% of voting shares in the French publisher. The company currently holds the single largest stake in Ubisoft shares, Bloomberg says. (more)

Thursday, July 15, 2010 8:46:17 AM GMT
A lot of games these days get special editions. It's a way for the publisher to raise the average selling price of its game as well as give fans and collectors something extra if they want it. Crysis 2 will be a big thing with its splash onto consoles, and with it will come one massive special edition, if a leak is to be believed. (more)

We know Dead Space-dev Visceral Games has had its eye on the downloadable space -- along with the rest of EA -- for some time now with the oft-rumored Jack the Ripper title and something else. Well, that something else is Dead Space Ignition, "the first of many exciting game extensions we have planned for the launch of Dead Space 2," says Dead Space franchise exec producer Steve Papoutsis.

Sales of Madden NFL 11 are set to kick off on August 10, and leading up to the title's launch, EA plans to release a series of videos highlighting the different divisions of the NFL. This week, we've got preview videos for the AFC East and AFC West, which you can find huddled up past the break. The team to beat in the AFC East is undoubtedly The Jets, who fell just shy of the AFC Championship game last year -- but don't discount The Patriots, who've still got plenty of weapons at their disposal.

What's that? The Maloof Money Cup DLC from early last month for Skate 3 wasn't enough to quench your desire for more skateboard-based hooliganery? Well perhaps the addition of a new skater (Danny Way) in a new locale (Hawaii) with 24 new challenges will help? Have a first look at Skate 3's "Hawaiian Dream" content pack just after the break.

You weren't going to be that guy. Your friends could fall in line all they wanted, but you were going to be strong. You didn't need an iPad, after all, you had your iPhone! Besides, the thing can't even make calls, what's the point? But then, your friends started coming around, magically flipping through USA Today with a swipe of their fingers like news genies, and you cracked, guiltily sliding your last $500 bill across the Genius Bar and walking out of the Apple Store defeated, but one iPad richer.

John Riccitiello: I think mostly what we're going to try to do is introduce 10 great products. So, but I think the message behind all the products is that -- and we feel very proud that we've got what I think is the best industry lineup. We'll talk about that, I'm sure, on the call. And then, increasingly, what we're doing is driving transformation where there's just a whole lot more to these products than a simple package goods.
