It looks like EA is next in line for the consolidation train.
The good thing is most of their sports titles will remain multiplatform due to licensing agreements. Although I hope it pushes Sony to pursue another sports license outside of MLB. Imagine SIE building a studio from the ground up to make a new Madden IP? Or expanding San Diego Studios so they can reboot NBA The Show?
You know, I'm surprised Sony doesn't try to push Hot Shots Golf + Tennis into the multiplatform stage. The IP does nothing to move consoles imho, and I think with licensing (or not) there's the potential to make them both worthwhile sports titles.
Decent list but I hope we get more down the line. (At least more often than what Nintendo does with their service or what Sony did few years back to PS2 to PS4 classics).
I recall hearing how trophy support really made PS2 to PS4 adoption difficult. I wonder if the process has been made easier.
Nonetheless I think trophies shouldn't be mandatory, but patchable if publishers choose to do it at a later stage. Unless trophy implementation is easier.
Also, Sony needs to push for as much of their catalogue to be present on the service. This should be the bare minimum imho
