  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 14 Flaunts Its Consistency with Lengthy Spell at Summit

    Top of the league

    There’s not an ounce of Manchester United in EA Sports' soccer simulation FIFA 14 – after all, the multiformat release actually seems capable of stringing a couple of good results together. Yet again, the footy favourite has dribbled to the top of the UK sales charts, mocking the competition like a freshly converted Arsenal...

  • News Battlefield 4 Is Finally Getting Tuned Up on PS4

    Let's hope this works

    If you've been affected by Battlefield 4's rather unstable multiplayer on PlayStation 4, you'll be happy to know that a patch is marching your way to provide support. The update, which includes a number of stability and balance fixes, will hopefully put an end to some of the crippling bugs and glitches that have been plaguing...

    Review Need for Speed: Rivals

    Cops 'n' racers

    Need for Speed: Rivals rarely wants you to take your foot off the accelerator. Swedish upstart Ghost Games’ debut arcade racer fuses the fast-paced police chases popularised by Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit with the open world pandemonium of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and serves up an emergent online experience that ensures that...

  • News Battlefield 4's PS4 Problems Put DICE's Future Projects on Ice

    Got to have Faith

    You know that you’ve got it bad when you have to put all of your upcoming projects on hold because the one that you initially released last month doesn’t actually work. Battlefield 4 is a top-notch first-person shooter on the PlayStation 4, but it’s currently riddled with technical issues that are affecting the majority of...

  • News EA CEO Thinks the PS4 Will Face Some 'Fairly Stiff Competition'

    EAsy does it

    The PlayStation 4 has sold phenomenally well, this much we know – but recently appointed EA CEO Andrew Wilson isn't certain that the console's continued dominance is a sure thing. Speaking at the Credit Suisse 2013 Technology Conference, Wilson noted that the living room is flooded with competitors. "Our market is evolving at a...

  • News PS4 UK Digital Prices Slashed Ever So Slightly by EA

    Still extortionate, though

    EA Games’ generosity knows no bounds. Following a backlash over the weekend regarding the eye-watering price points attached to the digital versions of its PlayStation 4 launch titles, the mega publisher has reduced the cost of its catalogue of next generation blockbusters by £3.00 ($4.85) apiece. Now purchasing the...

    Review Battlefield 4

    'Til it goes click

    While narratives have never really been DICE's strong suit, Battlefield 4, the next entry in its popular series of shooters, at least takes things in the right direction. While Battlefield 3 delivered an incredibly boring campaign that bordered on dreadful at times, the new entry at least seems like it tried. The story is not...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit

    Back of the net

    Unsurprisingly, this week’s UK sales chart is dominated by a certain non-Sony next generation console. With the Xbox One launching in Britain last Friday, a large chunk of this week’s top titles were sold on the Microsoft manufactured machine. That includes FIFA 14, which shot straight to the top of the league after seeing a...

  • News PS4's UK Digital Prices Will Stretch Your Wallet Pretty Wide

    Shop around

    The price of PlayStation 4 titles in the UK is a topic that hasn’t really been touched on a whole lot in the lead up to launch. We’ve avoided the subject largely because we expected things to settle down shortly before release, but it looks like that’s not going to be the case, and we’re going to be charged a hefty premium at...

  • News You've Spent Too Much Time Playing PS4 Games Already

    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

  • News Don't Worry, It's Just the First Titanfall That's Not Coming to PS4

    Well, unless Microsoft opens its cheque book again

    For a game that so few seem to be able to coherently explain why it's so fun, Titanfall sure has rocketed in importance since it was announced earlier in the year. Originally thought to be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, publisher EA Games recently an

  • News Whoa, One Third of PS4 Games Sold Are Developed by EA

    Slam dunk

    We all know that the PlayStation 4 is selling like hotcakes, but a recent report from Electronic Arts' chief financial officer Blake J. Jorgensen reveals that the AAA publisher hasn't done too badly itself. "We had a great weekend of sales relative to the console that looks like the average consumer tie ratio is about three pieces of...

    Passing the buck

    PlayStation 4 problems appear to be escalating as we approach the end of the system's first full day on the market. Connection issues aside, some users are now complaining of crashes in certain software. Earlier today, EA Games uploaded a support page blaming this on the next generation syst

    Boom! Shake, shake, shake the room

    Almost every event that you're a part of in Battlefield 4 is punctuated by some sort of demolition or explosion. Pursued by a helicopter? It'll blow up sooner or later. Running up a flight of stairs? They probably won't be there on the way back down. Need to get past an armoured vehicle? Better blast it to bits...

  • News Current Sales of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4 Are Dead in the Water

    Next-gen may not be to blame

    It should come as no surprise that the current-gen versions of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4 are not selling as well as previous entries. After all, who wants to buy a game on an ageing console when they can wait a few weeks for the superior next-gen version? But a recent report from MCV reveals that...

    EA may have given the impression that it’s jumped out of camp PlayStation over the past six months, but that couldn’t be further from the truth according to SCEE president Jim Ryan. While the North American giant has partnered with Microsoft and the Xbox One for virtually the entirety of its upcoming portfolio, that...

    Those fine folks at Criterion rarely get a break, do they? The critically acclaimed Guildford-based studio’s only just wrapped up the excellent Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and now it’s apparently already working on a reboot of 2003's Need for Speed: Underground.

    The threat of stagnation with annual sports titles is something that EA faces with a large chunk of its catalogue.

For everyone else,...

  • News EA's Peter Moore: We've Made Plenty of Mistakes, But We Will Do Better

    Executive promises improvements at under fire publisher

    EA’s not exactly having the best of times – the recent departure of CEO John Riccitiello is evidence of that. But while the publisher’s managed to badly bungle the launch of SimCity and produce some below-par games, we can probably all agree that it doesn’t deserve the ‘Worst...

    The last thing we expected from Battlefield 4’s first trailer was a blast of Bonnie Tyler, but that’s exactly how this 17 minute gameplay demo opens. Lead protagonist Recker finds himself trapped inside a sinking vehicle with three of his squadmates – sadly, one of them has to be sacrificed in...

  • News Battlefield 4 Screenshots Take Flight Ahead of Full Reveal

    Deployed early

    Developers should know not to upload screenshots prior to a big announcement – someone will always find them. These shots of Battlefield 4 were discovered by a slew of NeoGAF users on the series' official website. We’re guessing that they weren’t supposed to trickle free just yet. Whoops. In truth, there’s not a whole lot...

    The brute power of the PlayStation 4 may allow Battlefield 4 to seriously up the ante, as a report regarding the soon-to-be-revealed shooter has hinted at the return of 64 player maps. While the PC version of Battlefield 3 already boasted similarly sized arenas, PS3 players were forced to settle for significantly...

  • Rumour Dead Space 4 Dismembered Following Dismal Sales

    Marker of the times

    It sounds like the legs of Visceral Games’ likeable Dead Space series have been targeted by a well aimed Plasma Cutter shot by EA executives. According to a report on VideoGamer.com, a fourth entry in the horror series was in development, but has been cancelled following the poor sales of Dead Space 3. The

    BioWare has unsurprisingly released the trailer for Mass Effect 3: Citadel, the trilogy’s final slice of DLC. It’s looking to be the biggest add-on that the series has ever received, and the trailer is suitably packed full of teasers. It would seem that BioWare weren’t exaggerating when they said that protagonist Commander...

    Publisher speaks out about its absence from last week's PlayStation Meeting

    EA did not play a part in last week’s big PlayStation 4 unveiling. There was no sign of John Riccitiello, no quips from Peter Moore, and not even a logo for FIFA, Battlefield, or Madden. Considering the cosy relationship between the third-party and Sony in the past, the...

  • News Dead Space 3's Launch Trailer Murders a Classic

    Oh lord

    Forget the Necromorphs, the scariest thing about this Dead Space 3 launch trailer is the awful Phil Collins cover.

We’re guessing that that big centipede thing isn’t popping up to play tag. All will be...
