EA has the same temperament as Microsoft. Their ethic is the same. Keep as much control over their product as possible and milk as many of their top IP's as possible.
@Bold And who wouldn't want to milk their top IPs ? Everybody in the industry is doing it ... If Sony had an IP that came close to call of duty they would milk the shit out of it and the same goes for Nintendo. Activision is obviously doing it. EA has sports games to milk. Ubisoft is doing this with assassin's creed. Konami is squeezing the shit out of metal gear. Capcom is taking the life out of street fighter. Square Enix is trying to dry the shit out of Final Fantasy. Sega ain't even giving that pitiful hedgehog a break. Tecmo Koei keeps pushing out more dynasty warriors.
Almost everybody is doing it STAGE, now tell us something we don't know ...
MS aren't producing nearly as many new things that stick as they are milking over and over again. EA is the same way. Nintendo hasn't created a new IP in quite a while and Sony, well Sony keeps making new risking it all on new IP's and milking ones that stick.
And what new things has others produced aside from ubisoft that actually sticked, STAGE ? Nintendo hasn't created a new IP, eh ? Then what in the hell are the WII games ? Sony is also guilty for milking shit too such as god of war.
What makes Sony different from the rest of the fellow trash publishers ?
