DLC & Online In Every 2011 EA Game

Most games nowadays have some form of online and/or downloadable content but that doesn’t make it a necessity. Well apparently EA have different thoughts. Their COO, John Schappert, stated during the company’s Q3 financial earnings that “every one of EA’s releases will have an online component—both downloadable content and online play.”

With the current line-up scheduled for 2011 it probably won’t be hard for them to keep to their promise but with a few unnamed titles as of yet, it could still prove to be a bad choice. The DLC could also be an attempt to pull us away from buying games second hand. They’ve done it before with The Saboteur and Mass Effect 2, remember?
