EA says "1 of every 3 PS4 games sold is an EA game"

Electronic Arts provides one-fifth of the titles available for PS4, and leads in sales.

Peter Moore, the current chief operating officer of Electronic Arts, wrote over Twitter today that "1 of every 3 PS4 games sold is an EA game."

Of the 25 games currently available for PS4, five are from EA, including Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, NBA Live 14, and Need for Speed: Rivals.

Despite the apparent popularity of EA's lineup, users have recently criticized the online performance of many EA titles. While some problems are clearly outside the company's power to control, like the recent DDoS attack on Battlefield 4, it's unclear who is at fault for the other issues. A quickly deleted post on the Electronic Arts help site attributed the stability problems to Sony's firmware, but the post was later deleted with the statement that it was made in error.

There aren't many games out. I bought FIFA. NBA Live is something that I can't believe was released for the PS4. It's amazing how bad it is.


I really hope 2k does NFL, FIFA, and the rest in the future. I really would never buy another EA Sports game.

You know what? When I flip a coin... half the time it lands on tails... What are the odds? Where is my news story. There is 1 shelf of games out for it... Half of them are EA games. So if it's only 1 out of 3 games, it's completely obvious EA sucks.

Advice for EA: Don't piss in my ear and tell me it's raining...

With only so many PS4 games out at the moment, this really isn't impressive.

EA, fire your employees. Your programmers are shit. 2k and MLB the show creators are not only programmers but they also have a passion in sports. Don't just hire athletes and say EA Sports before the loading screen.

EA games is like the sorry ass beta dude at the bar who believes himself to be the ultimate alpha badass that actually keeps getting rejected by girls. and toward the end he is always like "she like's me! DUUUUDE!"

NO EA! nobody likes you, and btw, GO HOME YOUR'E DRUNK!

I know ea aren't exactly the brightest light in the gaming industry. But you have got to hand it to them, they have been going for ever since I can remember. you are all eventually going to buy an ea game, or have purchased one in the past. they clearly know their market and know it well, its just a shame they take advantage of us so much or they may do even better business for themselves. but I will not let the fact battlefield, battlefront, fifa and so on effect my decision that they are still some of the best game titles available and I do not care how evil the people are who get the money, because in the end they get what they want and I get what I want. I will continue to buy ea games, not because I want to support ea but because lets face it they have brilliant games.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Of course, because EA has never released a good game. I understand you don't like their DRM, but EA has some good games. Not all of their games are good, but they have some good games. I buy EA way more often than I buy Activision. The only thing I buy from Activision anymore are Blizzard games. The rest are pretty much crap. Of course, Square Enix, Ubisoft, and Take Two are all way better than both of them, but anyway. Personal taste is personal taste.

That's an impressive way of twisting statistics. The fact remains that Battlefield 4 just cannot compete with Call of Duty at this precise moment in time. Gamers in their droves went out and bought Ghosts, over 700,000 of them, while around 350,000 went and bought BF4.

FIFA hasn't taken off, neither has NFS:Rivals and the less said about Madden the better.

Well, when many early adopters of next-gen consoles are dude bros that think CoD and sports are the greatest games ever, this comes as no surprise.

@KamuiFei Given how PS fanboys talk about Sony's first party games being great, it's surprising to see Killzone and Knack not selling particularly well. Clearly those people don't believe in what they are saying, because the sales figures paints a different story.

<< LINK REMOVED >> You're assuming that every PS4 sold so far has been bought by a Sony fanboy. Killzone is a relative niche in the fps market and will always be overshadowed by Battlefield and Call of Duty. Knack on the other-hand should just be kicked in the knackers.

Of coarse 1 in 3 PS4 games sold are EA games. When they flood the market with garbage, it's hard to see the hidden gems lying underneath. But there are no gems this launch, so don't bother looking. EA are a cancer on the industry, quantity not quality. They are the exact opposite of Valve.

No **** maybe that;s slightly related to the fact that the only games available are EA games. Five of the launch titles are EA games, the rest are indie or CoD or Ubisoft or Netherrealm or just no one cares.

Another way to look at it; 2 out of 3 games are NOT EA. Spin that one, Doc.
