REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

EA: Our Relationship With Sony Is "Very Good"

Posted on Friday, August 23 @ 05:36:05 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Despite the fact that Xbox One gamers will be getting special features in FIFA 14, timed-exclusive Battlefield 4 DLC, and Titanfall early next year, Electronic Arts still has a special place in its heart for Sony... or so it says.

According to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau, the publisher's relationship with Sony is "very good."

We’re changing nothing in our policy about being platform-agnostic. One of the things that struck me this week is how a tactical deal with one of our platform partners has been blown out and perceived as strategic tilt – that’s a messaging error on our part. There is no strategic tilt.

The Sony platform and the Xbox platform are both very important to us. If you look at the previous generation we did tactical deals with both Sony and Microsoft throughout the cycle. Titanfall is different, it’s an EA Partners game – everything else is platform agnostic.

It’s a long cycle, and certainly there’s potential with Sony exclusivity deals too.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this next generation of gaming plays out. Will major publishers continue to strike exclusive deals? Will EA play both sides of the fence in the years to come? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
