Electronic Arts working on bringing back their Battlefield franchise to mobile devices

EA has plenty of franchises in their catalog of games for a variety of platforms but their main FPS franchise called Battlefield is one that the company has big plans for in the near future. These plans pertain to bringing the franchise to mobile but it isn’t just about bringing a port of the game over. It’s also about having it ‘inter-operate’ with the game on other platforms as well, making it a true cross-platform mobile game. This is a trend we have been seeing lately as this is at least the third game in about a week that we’ve talked about heading our way that will contain cross-platform multiplayer with its PC/console brethren.

EA CEO John Riccitiello resigns, millions of Sims begin to cry

It a rather interesting twist today, EA’s CEO John Riccitiello has officially submitted his resignation to EA’s board of directors, with his last day being March 30th, 2013. His resignation is for his position as CEO of the company as well as his spot on the board of directors, both of which will end at the end of March. Larry Probst has been appointed as executive chairman temporarily and has released a public statement.

Do EA microtransactions really push it that far?

I downloaded Real Racing 3 by game giant EA in the hopes of enjoying a bit of “real” racing. Usually every racing title I experience is cartoony or over-the-top, and I was in the mood for a game that made me feel more, I don’t know, real. The game cost nothing so I had no excuse to try it out. We’ve talked about it on the site before but I was eager to see just what all of the fuss (much of which I found out about later) was about. Being that EA had recently ran into more drama than they could possibly ever want when Sim City’s servers blew up, I was even more eager to see how they fared in the mobile market. I normally skip their games and go for Gameloft when I want a larger, shinier title.
