Microsoft and EA have an unprecedented partnership

It's a great deal for sports fans. I honestly only play ME when it comes to EA, so it wouldn't be much of a deal for me.

Where is this misguided notion that the xbox division has access to all M$ money come from? M$ investors are already calling for the xbox brand to be sold or spun off as it is losing money, M$ is primarily a pc software and OS making company no a dedicated video gaming company, no way the higher up's at M$ would sanction a multi billion dollar deal to buy EA, and after loss in sales for titanfall, no way EA are going to publish games only for xbox

EA is slowly dying. look what happend with NBA Live and the recent BF4 plus the overhyped Titanfall that failed to lived on its hype. lol

This again been a while one investor wanted that but it has already been squashed since the majority owner wants to keep it

EA would never develop exclusively for a single platform.

I would be surprised if this service doesn't eventually reach PS4 and PC depending on its success here.


And the day it does I will say that it is crap and overrated but until that day I will say that it's the greatest thing ever, and it shows Microsoft cares about us.

P.S. Effective August 19th: Plants VS Zombies Garden Warfare is crap and overrated.

Not changing signature until Hideo Kojima retires or gets fired.

I imagine this is something EA will be bringing to other platforms eventually. I think Microsoft probably just worked with them to make it happen similar to how Netflix hit the 360 before everything else.


I think this will depend on Sony and how much they are willing to adjust pricing of their current programs. It is going to be really interesting to see how this all ends up and what precedent it has set for others.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Both are the top most hated company in the world. They fit just fine.
