Game budgets have peaked, says EA

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2552 days, 16 hours, 46 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:11:02 AM GMT
EA Partners' boss David DeMartini, speaking with GamesIndustry.biz at gamescom, expressed his belief that "budgets for games have actually peaked and are starting to move in the reverse direction again." "I don’t think there’s any one right budget for any game," he explained. "It kind of depends on how big the idea is and what the team needs to be able to make a 90 percent-rated game with the idea that they’re working on. You just need to make sure that you pick a path that’s going to get you there." (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2575 days, 13 hours, 48 minutes ago
Monday, August 02, 2010 9:08:59 AM GMT
NBA Jam is itself an NBA classic, so it's only fitting that the revamped Wii version brings back some classic players. A new trailer posted by MTV Multiplayer unveils six NBA stars who will return in big-headed glory: Clyde Drexler, Kevin MacHale, Dennis Rodman, Hakeem Olajuwan, Detlef Schrempf, and James Worthy. They'll join the previously confirmed Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. See the trailer after the break. (more)

Risk now waging war on the iPhone

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)

Preview: Darkspore

The basis for much of my opinion on Spore comes, unfortunately, from its spin-off games for consoles and handhelds. While the original title was something which captured my interest, my inability to commit to a life of PC gaming by upgrading this ancient computer prevented me from actually playing it. I'd like to do that someday because I want to know for myself if this is a series that can justify the marketing push which has foisted so many mediocre or worse titles on an unsuspecting public.

Report: EA selling a 15% stake in Ubisoft

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2591 days, 13 hours, 40 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)

Dead Space Ignition is a downloadable Dead Space 2 prequel, for XBLA and PSN

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2600 days, 14 hours, 22 minutes ago
Thursday, July 08, 2010 8:35:13 AM GMT
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.

Madden NFL 11 videos preview AFC East and AFC West

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2604 days, 13 hours, 59 minutes ago
Sunday, July 04, 2010 8:58:00 AM GMT
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.

Wow, has it already been a year since DICE's freemium version of its popular Battlefield FPS series, Battlefield Heroes, launched on the PC?

The Sims 3 hits the 'Fast Lane' this fall

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2608 days, 14 hours, 30 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 30, 2010 8:27:45 AM GMT
Even though The Sims 3 is gearing up to give console gamers the chance to live vicariously through its virtual, incoherent inhabitants in October, it doesn't mean EA has ceased support for the PC version of the game. In fact, there's a new expansion coming this fall, titled "The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff" pack. This new content pack gives players the choice between four different lifestyle options: racing; intrigue; rockabilly; and classic luxury. Each option provides your Sim with custom furniture, outfit... (more)

Interview: Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello talks E3

Monday, June 14, 2010 6:50:41 AM GMT
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. There's a full series of services and benefits and post release contents. T... (more)

Excited about Crysis 2 but can't wait until the game arrives later this year? You could probably don a Nano Muscle Suit and spend the summer looking like a psychotic person -- or you could go over to the MyCrysis community page and sign up for an account, granting you a chance at early access to the beta. "What beta?" you say? Yep, turns out that Crytek is working on giving fans early access to its upcoming sequel. (more)

E3 10: Early convention center impressions

Sunday, June 13, 2010 9:27:35 AM GMT
By now you've probably seen some of the interesting bits of news to come from the LA Convention Center. A rather gruesome return to the roots of the Mortal Kombat franchise, as well as a peek at a promo poster for MvC3 chilling outside, these are just a taste of what is to come with next week's convention. But there's more! We've got a massive banner for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood rocking the broad front of the center, and Sony has the ballsy quote of "This changes everything" wrapping around the bui... (more)

Friday, June 11, 2010 5:35:31 AM GMT
Specifics have been few and far between for Medal of Honor's multiplayer component, which is unfortunate. I'm eager to see what DICE will be packing this time around, and on that note, many of us are dying to hear more about the upcoming beta. We know it's on the way, and little else. According to a retailer listing for Medal of Honor over at Play.com, we can expect the multiplayer beta to go from July 5 to the 17th for those who pre-order. If I had to make a guess here, it'd be that -- as per the norm ... (more)

Mega64 gets the lowdown on Rock Band 3's new logo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2628 days, 14 hours, 38 minutes ago
Thursday, June 10, 2010 8:19:55 AM GMT
Oh, Mega64, is there any code you can't crack? First it was the mysterious Kojima teaser last year and now, the comedy troupe ponders on that mysterious new keyboard-like icon in the Rock Band 3 logo. They even find some similarities between Rock Band 3 and F3AR -- er, sorry, FEAR 3. It's some very high-brow deductive reasoning, as indicated in the classy image above. Head past the break to check out the video courtesy of IGN -- "solved 4 good," indeed. (more)

Gibson's Rock Band lawsuit ends in settlement, one way or another

Thursday, June 10, 2010 7:34:46 AM GMT
Back in 2008, Gibson Guitar hoped to cash in on the Rock Band craze with a slate of patent infringement lawsuits of dubious quality, and though the firm lost to Activision a year later, its suits against Harmonix, Electronic Arts, Viacom, and six major retailers stirred something in Nashville's rock gods. Though exact terms weren't disclosed, the parties reached a settlement in a Tennessee federal court this week, and plan to bring the lawsuit to an end by June 14th. Meanwhile, we hear Harmonix v.

Science: EA Sports Active is a real workout

Think the peripheral-equipped EA Sports Active provides nothing more than a wussy, girly-man workout? You might be right, but at least it's a wussy, girly-man doctor-approved workout. So says a new study conducted by a researcher from the University of Wisconsin, who found that EA's exer-game meets the requirements set up by the American College of Sports Medicine for "a healthy, active lifestyle."
