EA: Our Relationship With Sony Is "Very Good"

Posted on Friday, August 23 @ 05:36:05 PST 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.
