EA has “never been as prepared or more ready” for new consoles

EA’s body is ready for new hardware.

“At EA, we have never been as prepared or more ready for the start of a new console cycle,” EA’s chief technology officer Rajat Taneja said at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, as reported by GamesIndustry.

Taneja’s comments are complementary of colleague Blake Jorgensen’s; EA’s financial officer also spoke at the conference, saying EA has “a lot of stuff” ready to show in the next few months.

Taneja also said the new consoles have “between eight and ten times the power” of the current generation of hardware, enabling “a level of gameplay experience that is unprecedented”.

The executive said that new consoles utilise a more PC-like architecture – something heavily rumoured but as yet uncomformed for Microsoft’s new hardware – which makes it easy to port across technology like the Frostbite engine.

“What used to take months in the past will now take days to do,” he said.

    The entire gaming industry has turned to shit, this is what happens when a market becomes too big. The men in suits care nothing more than their wallets and maximizing revenue. They have absolutely no passion towards the art of making games. But most of this is the consumers fault for allowing it to happen, as long as people buy half assed games with DLC…. the corporations will continue to release what people buy.

    A corrupt infrastructure meets retarded consumers equals chopped up games to be later resold as “DLC”.
