EA Games stock market share value continues to slide downward

While a number of financial withdrawals of support have taken place (both scheduled and unexpected), as well as consumer backlash leading to a general lack of interest in upcoming titles, the value of EA Games in the stock market has been taking a continual dip. While most journalists and gamers may not have noticed, EA Games has been steadily sliding in a downward spiral as the lack of hype around their games produces a chilling effect on investor confidence.

Origin Tracks What You Do On Your Computer, EA “is investigating the issue” – Claims “Origin is not spyware”

EA illuminati electronic arts

Although an Electronic Arts spokesperson has released a statement claiming that “Origin is not spyware, and there should be no privacy snooping operations of any type” in response to today’s claims, they are backed up with visual evidence of the Origin software checking up on what gamers do on their computer (specifically what applications they run, when they were installed, and when they were last run).

Take a look at the image below which also points out that the tracked activity log of this Origin user even has the application names scrambled, likely in an attempt to confuse the user and make them think that these are merely system files Origin needs to track for its functionality.

EA Origin Tracking User Activity

Of course, it is also a fact that Origin does state in the terms of service that it reserves the right to collect information (with a vague ambiguity leaving users open to actions like this, with potentially no legal recourse). That being said, it is also likely that this is not being done to try and individually punish anybody – but rather as most digital spying is used, it is probably meant to generate statistical data about a broad range of a large group of people. Think of this as a way for EA to keep track of the latest computer gaming trends.

Sony And EA Want ‘PlayStation 5’ Release Five Years From Now

PlayStation 5 - RealGamerNewz - Sony

For those who think this article is going to head into one particular direction – let me stop you at the gate. Honestly the PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 generation lasted way too long. And if PC Gaming as well as Console Gaming throughout the past decade and a half has taught you anything it’s that it’s not always easy buying new hardware right when it comes out. That being said, Sony reached some controversy when it announced PS5 (or rather that a fifth PlayStation design (PS5) was being thought of starting around the time of the PS4 Launch). Some want these console generations to go as long as humanly possible, to get the most value out of their machine which whether you’re talking low/mid-range gaming PC or next-generation consoles in their first few years of release – you’re looking at some amount of hundreds of dollars.

Back in the old days it was a little different. The games were so expensive on the cartridge format, and players spent so much time playing through a single title that they would make modern day Achievement hunters look like ‘noobs’ at the game’s they’d ‘100% Completed’. So making available over 3,800 games like PlayStation 2 developers managed to do simply wasn’t necessary (by comparison PlayStation 3 currently has 795 games available and thanks to cloud computing (PlayStation NOW) and digital distribution (PlayStation Network / PlayStation Plus) the PS3 will likely be forwards-compatible with many games that are developed for the PlayStation 4 as a lead platform. This means a level of post-mortem support that game consoles have never seen before, and the Xbox 360 will likely hang around longer than expected this time around due to the presence of their digital Xbox LIVE infrastructure as well.

But for gamers to ask for console manufacturers not to release a ‘PlayStation 5’ or next-next-generation Xbox console is a dangerous and slippery slope in my opinion. By the time 5 years has passed the next-gen consoles we see today will likely have been host to so many optimizations in console game development code, especially as they are now more in-line with PC game development architecture, that they will be in the prime of their lives. At the same time, if you spend double on a PC what you would on a PS4 right now, you’re already there at a higher level of experience (granted you use the right kind of display, and not a television designed for console gaming). Five years from now the PC Gaming sector will be very far advanced beyond console gaming once again and with an increasing embrace to Steam and PC Gaming in general players should expect a ‘PlayStation 5’ – type of system to emerge again with updated specs and renewed focus on emerging network trends from the internet world in order to keep the console experience feeling luxurious.

As I said at the start of the topic, I believe the PS3 / 360 generation lasted way too long. The industry shouldn’t wait that long to refresh, because it holds developers of console games back. The games can’t innovate without the hardware specs increase – not just in terms of graphics, but more importantly gameworld and gameplay elements can be evolved as well. And although this source may be questionable, Electronic Arts EVP Patrick Söderlund seems to agree with the precedent Sony is putting forward with the ‘PlayStation 5”s scheduling, even going as far as to say that the PS3 / 360 generation took too long which is something I’m often lambasted for saying myself due to the bargain effect people seem to be going for with these consoles.

Currently, sales of the PlayStation 4 are skyrocketing (beyond 6 Million and rising), so many may begin to disagree with my notion that Sony is right to aim for a 5 year away ‘PlayStation 5’-style launch. But if their first party studios can manage to produce all of the projects they are currently planning – that’s a lot of incredible gaming material coming down the line including new IPs and existing IPs such as The Order: 1886, a currently untitled Uncharted 4 (in addition to The Last Of Us 2 and a New IP by Naughty Dog), Drive Club, Infamous: Second Son (followed by a New IP by Sucker Punch), a currently untitled Open World RPG by Guerrilla Games, and this is just to name a few coming soon or less soon. Essentially it seems each PS4 first party developer is engaged in at least one existing IP project and one New IP project. Keep in mind there’s also third party exclusives being developed for Xbox ONE and PlayStation 4 this generation such as Dead Rising 3 for XO and Deep Down for PS4 (both published by Capcom).

This generation might be less about entertaining you for another decade and more about packing a punch for what consumers are considering a high asking price to engage in next-generation console gaming. For a final word on the subject from the executive point-of-view, take a look at this Sony UK Interview.

LSD King Timothy Leary’s Previously Unreleased Video Games See the Light of Day

Neuromancer

The late Timothy Leary best known for his LSD promotion, philosophical insights, and support for a cybernetic world as well as finding inner-peace through one’s self, has been discovered to have developed a number of video games which until now have never been seen by the public. Although it is on public record that at least one commercially published title (Mind Mirror published by Electronic Arts to sell 65K Units) was designed / developed by Leary, we now know of many more.

The image above shows a game called Neuromancer Mind Movie (based on the book Neuromancer by William Gibson) which was being worked on. Many other titles were available for viewing (and some are even playable) as the New York Public Library opened an archive including emulators that allowed the titles to be seen in their original form.

Check out another screenshot below from SKIPI (Super Knowledge Information Processing Interface) which was perhaps a conceptual design of Inter-Com, another work-in-progress game by Leary which much like his other projects focused on self-improvement and discovery of one’s own personality through interactive media.

EA Games Getting Ready to Drop PS3-Quality Games on Tablets

EA Games

Electronic Arts, the maker of many, many, many games (is that enough many’s?) has announced today that not only are the next-generation tablets we are about to see debut on the mainstream market capable of great things, but they will already have catalogs of games prepared for them before they arrive. Next-generation tablets EA Games currently has early access to and is developing games for are being compared to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in terms of graphical and processing power.

This, EA Games says, will open the door for a whole new wave of re-imagined existing AAA franchises and new games as well. In addition to this, many PS3 / 360 game engines will now be able to run on mobile platforms, especially tablets. This opens up the doors for the booming mobile gaming industry to grow even larger in 2014 and beyond.

Are you a mobile gamer? Are you ready for a “next-gen” to occur in that market? Let us know and we’ll tell EA Games what you think, raw and uncensored, RealGamerNewz style.
