EA Sports favouring the PS3

Well it seems like things are being shaken up over at EA Sports by the ex-head of the Xbox 360 department, Peter Moore.

Previously EA Sports quite blatantly favoured the Xbox 360 with the games easily performing better on the Microsoft hardware and the PS3 versions being shoddy ports.. however that seems to be changing.

The upcoming Madden 2009 Press Conference is going to be displaying the game exclusively on PlayStation hardware, much like the previous NCAA Football press conference.

So it will be interesting to see which version of Madden, which is idiotically popular in America, will be the winner this year. If the PS3 version out performs the 360 version it will be a huge blow for Microsoft in their home country…

I wonder if Peter left Microsoft on worse terms than previously stated….

    Strange though that they would do that switch? Also it seems that the madden series is going down lately since EA got the NFL exclusive.

    It makes their job of porting to other formats harder 😉

    Check out Hi-Fi Corp if you are looking to buy games this weekend. There’s a massive gaming, music and dvd sale going on 😛

  • I don’t think it’s a switch per se, I think it’s just a big “I love you too” to make up for the last 2 years. PS3 and 360 versions will be exactly the same, there’s no ways they can afford to jilt those American fans who want to play their American football, on their democratic gun loving American console 😉

    I gotta say I told you so Dobbi (the creepy thing from harry potter), after the announcement of ps3 ingame adverts I said this was coming!

  • Yeah theres still nothing to say that 360 owners will be getting a worse game, this just means that after 2 years playstation owners may actually get EA sports games (specifically madden) that actually run as well as their 360 counterparts.
