Mobile gaming helps expand the console business, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen believes.

“It’s bringing new people into the gaming business, but I don’t see a day when it takes over the console experience,” he said. “I think it will expand the console experience.”

The reason, according to Jorgensen, is that you can’t get experiences like Battlefield 4 on mobile.

“You just can’t. Mobile is a much more quick, short burst of gameplay.”

During last year’s conference, Jorgensen said EA planned to support PS3 and Xbox 360 through 2017.
