While EA may have stepped towards Microsoft this generation with DLC exclusivity deals, and into the next, allowing Microsoft to package a copy of FIFA 14 in with every “Day One” version of the Xbox One, EA president Frank Gibeau has moved to assure PlayStation fans that they’re behind Sony’s next console, which releases next month.
“We’re not tilting Microsoft’s way,” said Gibeau when asked about the FIFA 14 Xbox One bundle in the latest edition of Edge magazine. “We are firm longterm supporters of Sony.”
He also announced plans to balance this currently skewed support, saying “I’m sure you’ll see tactical programmes between us and Sony in the future that we haven’t announced, but will make things much more balanced.”
It’s good to see that EA are confident in Sony. While they may have faltered with the launch of the PS3, it’s clear that Sony have a good approach to the next generation. In the end, it’s all about the support, so it will be interesting to see what the next few years could bring.
