EA Sports boss and feline-faced funster Peter Moore has defended Origin after his EB Games Expo was heckled by a guy shouting, "Origin sucks." Unsurprisingly, Moore doesn't think EA's digital download service sucks, although he didn't exactly explain why it was good

"What we're doing is innovating in areas that are unusual for gamers," he said. "The heckle was about Origin, which is our platform for social, community-based interaction with our fans, delivering games directly to their computers, allowing you to see what your friends are playing at any given time and allowing you to communicate with them. 

"And like any piece of software, and I worked at Microsoft for enough years to say this, you launch software and continue to polish it, upgrade it, get feedback and make it better. That's where we are with Origin. We're only four and a half months in and already over five million people are using it on a daily basis."

He claims that first party developers already understand what Origin is doing, but that the fans who have to use it first are the ones that "get it last," implying that one day there will be a mighty revelation and we'll see that EA was wise all along. Forgive me for being cynical about that.

Last month, I did my best to tell you what EA Sports wanted to put emphasis on for its three big sports titles this year. Then, it went and undermined me by releasing videos that say exactly what I wrote. In the unfortunate ...more

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.more

Who is yelling in this Madden trailer and why, why, why

I wanted to fit a "Red Warrior is about to die" joke in this trailer for Madden's new Gauntlet mode. I got as far as "Redskins is about to die" before I started watching this video and was greeted with an over eager, discordant voice over. Bosssssss levelsssssssssssss. Who thought this was a good idea?more
