It's reasons like what we're about to talk about why it's truly sad to see Nintendo struggling so much in the console market, because it seems to care a lot more about its customers than the other guys.

We love a good gameplay trailer around here, and the latest one from EA showing off Battlefield 4’s multiplayer play looks fantastic.

A couple of weeks ago, EA did something truly atypical to its usual business plan: it got rid of something that made it money.

John Riccitiello is the former CEO of EA, and after all the recent chaos that led to him leaving his post, you’d think he’d keep a low profile for a while.

At this point, after its CEO resigned in the aftermath of a launch fiasco, a couple of rounds of worker layoffs, and being voted “Worst Company in America”, Electronic Arts is probably in “screw it” mode.

Battlefield 4 isn’t going to be available until this fall, but EA is throwing us a bone (or does this count as teasing?) by posting a 17-minute video of the game’s “Fishing in Baku” mission. There’s a healthy mix of scripted scenes and more open gameplay, but in both cases the action moves very quickly. The visuals... Read more...
EA CEO John Riccitiello has resigned from his post after six years as the top man and the previous seven as COO. In all, Riccitiello has been with the company since 1997, but he’s leaving under a cloud.
