Forums - Gaming Discussion - EA is not doing a press conference at EA Play this year, games will be shown on live streams instead

Good move, in my opinion.

Conferenes tend to be very tricky and and it's very easy to bore your audience unless done well, and EA didn't do it well enough the other years. Replacing it with trailers and live streams is a change in the good direction from them.



Please excuse my bad English.

Yeah, what they said about the Titanfall game made me think that it is not Titanfall 3, but something much smaller, maybe a VR game.

As for Jedi- Fallen Order, it is actually a singleplayer game. It was directed by Stig Asmussen, the director of God of War 3, and written by Chris Avellone, the writer of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Fallout: New Vegas. 

Just you wait, this single player SW game will eventually become a multiplayer-first game in one way or another to justify the microtransactions. It's the how that we don't know yet.

Most likely they will just pull an Ubisoft and release some singleplayer microtransactions, rather than trying to shoehorn a MP mode into it, I would think. Could have MP in addition the the singleplayer though, who knows, might even be good, we haven't had a multiplayer game/mode with proper lightsaber combat since Jedi Academy way back in 2003. 



Please spend the money $$$ on game-development, or give them the proper time needed. Make Games Great Again...please.

Actually, we do now...a closer is brought in to tear the game down into a minimum viable product.

Here's the video explaining the process...credit goes to another VGChartz member for sharing the info.  [will have to remember them and add, edit here, sorry for now]

Very informative and educational.  Worth the watch.



One less conference, not that I'm eager for this year E3. New gen is coming but won't be show this year.

The only thing they possibly have that interests me is the C&C remaster and even then I'm looking at another year or two of waiting. I don't trust EA with the SW license and with Apex legends, I don't really see Respawn crafting a fully fledged SP campaign in such short time.



They can show also games at MS/Nintendo direct etc :).






So can we consolidate the schedule down to one less day then? Nintendo on Sunday instead of Monday, perhaps?

Would be nice if Nintendo aired their direct on Monday in Sony's night slot or in Microsoft's old Monday morning slot, and then ran their usual treehouse on Tuesday. But I doubt they will. 



But of course, there is no E3 anymore.
