Not going to happen. They will come out and say that the PS2 version of Fifa 14 can not run on the Wii U.

I'm actually REALLY curious too.

They removed the online pass in upcoming games specifically because of XB One's policies, are they going to bring that back in?


EA cant do shit. MS and Sony have major pull when it comes to these things. Don't for a second think that the publishers forced this onto the platform manufacturers. Most of EA's profit comes from console sales. They won't risk that relationship.

Numbers don't lie.

Was this the news you were hearing yesterday? and the likely drastic difference in pre-orders is the final push for MS to change.

Signature goes here!

Around the Network

These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray. 

 

DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

Wow. Was the difference that big O_O

Props to MS for changing course i guess? But i get the feeling this is ony because of the numbers and not out of response to the consumers. Do you think the damage is done though?

BenV you need to keep us updated on preorder numbers!!

Partially.

The other part neither side will ever talk about.
