PC Is Becoming EA’s Biggest Platform

Contrary to the mainstream belief that "piracy is killing PC gaming" and console games outsell their PC counterparts, EA Games president Frank Gibeau suggested that it might be the most important platform for the company's future.

"The user base is gigantic," he explained. "PC retail may be a big problem, but PC downloads are awesome."

"The margins are much better and we don't have any rules in terms of first party approvals. From our perspective, it's an extremely healthy platform. It's totally conceivable it will become our biggest platform."

Consoles are not immune...

This ding dong's only sayin' this bullshit now because he's finally realizing that piracy runs as rampant on any console as it does on the PC & he thinks DLGs are the answer. It's only the answer if you knock off the bullshit $50 price tags for single playthrough, 10-15 hour content that the player doesn't even own. I bought ME2 @ Wal-Mart for $20. I'd hardly call it "Game of the Year" but the Mass Effect "interactive space opera movies" provide lots of entertainment for $20, but not for $60. It's just a shitty port of a shitty console version, but still worth $20. Stop Jewing people on all platforms & they'll stop screwing you.

lol

HAve you heard that a guy got blocked from using his Dragon Age 2 copy because he was harsh on their forums?

Check it out... [url removed]

Still, they make this game thinking on consoles, not on pcs... We've seen very poor ports from console to pc and when they take an original pc game, they make a very nice port, in fact, a pc game thought for the console.. of course, the DA origins community got angry for such a back stab.
