You've Spent Too Much Time Playing PS4 Games Already

Posted by Sammy Barker

Take a break

Sony’s next generation console has only been out for a few days, but that hasn’t stopped you from logging an incredible 2.3 million hours of gameplay in various EA titles. Yesterday, an executive at the North American publisher pointed out that one-third of launch games purchased for the PlayStation 4 were developed by the company, and now it’s followed up with the impressive statistic above.

While the number may look extraordinary on the surface, it can be explained quite easily. Sony announced over the weekend that it had sold one million shiny new consoles in North America, meaning that the average player has invested a much more reasonable total of 2.3 hours into Battlefield 4, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, and Need for Speed: Rivals over the past few days.

The company added that it has logged more than five million game sessions on the brand new console so far, an impressive statistic considering DICE’s flagship first-person shooter is supposedly in a bit of a state on the futuristic format. Perhaps people are bumping up their playtime by staring at loading screens and network error messages.

Still waiting for my local game store to have one on exhibition, just want to try it out at least once T_T

By my (admittedly dodgy) calculations, that's approximately 96,000 days worth of gameplay. That's lots of days.

Awesome to see gamers continue to support the truly terrific company that is EA and its great, non-halfassed games.

Yeah, the "average" person...I know at least three PS4 owners (including myself) who don't have ANY EA games yet, so you can be darned sure there are people putting in a LOT more time than 2.3 hours.

Is EA spying on us when we play its games online even if we are in single player mode?



Grockumus said:

@belmont It's calculated by player statistics. Leader boards must sum up all the game time hours from each player. At least, I think so...

I'll give you Battlefield and NFS. Its sports games, however, which is where EA makes most of its money, are the most half-a$$sed pieces of sh*t on the market today.
