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 ? 


All companies are guilty of milking their top franchises, otherwise we wouldn't have Gran Turismo 6, Halo 4, and New Super Mario Bros. 2. It's what they do with those games that actually makes them better or the same iteration with every entry. I think Sony takes greater risks in regards to new IPs over the other two companies, even if the games don't become financially successful. They still look like they try (Nintendo does a good job with their existing IPs), instead of releasing the same game over and over, moreorless.

Games published by Sony in 2012-14 that are new IPs include Book of Spells, Playstation All-Stars, Sorcery, Tokyo Jungle, Journey, The Unfinished Swan, Beyond: Two Souls (even if it plays similar to Heavy Rain), Diggs Nightcrawler, The Last of Us, Puppeteer, Rain, Knack and Resogun. Granted, a lot of those aren't exactly high-class titles, but they try to be somewhat original.

Nintendo doesn't invent many new IPs (Wii series was their first one in a good while), but they tend to do pretty well with their established franchises, even if one of them might be a little milked. Microsoft doesn't seem to have a whole lot going for it, as far as original IPs are concerned, as outside of Ryse and Quantum Break, I can't think of any previously announced titles coming to the Xbox One.
