The topics include The Golf Club and whether there could be more unlicensed sports games in the future, when to expect the Madden NFL 15 demo, why publishers seem to be holding back information on games until later now, and what sports game release in the past generated the most anticipation for the panelists.

    EA Access was announced yesterday and based on the reaction there appears to be quite a lot of interest in the concept of a subscription service which provides a library of older games to play and pre-release play periods for new games. Many who were aware of EA Sports Season Ticket liked what that provided too, which EA Access appears to have improved upon in several areas and offers less in others, but that program was never actively advertised by the company so it never took off. They wil...

Even more of those will posted tomorrow.

More will be posted throughout the week and the full show audio will be featured on Friday's Press Row Podcast. 1) Patches have allowed developers to continue working on games right up to and beyond release.

  • Press Row Hangout Clips: EA’s Marketing Shift and Taking On Viewer Questions
    by
    Posted July 14th, 2014 at 2:15 pm 1 Comment »
    The final two segments from the most recent Press Row Hangout relate to the apparent shift in marketing strategy from EA Sports and various topics sent in by viewers. The first video gives consideration to why EA is promoting their upcoming titles differently this year compared to how they have traditionally. Less is being talked about early, recording was not permitted at E3, and the information that is actually being distributed has been fairly low key and based in fundamentals. Is it ...
  • PES 2015 Adding Its Own Ultimate Team Mode Among Other New Features

    Posted July 3rd, 2014 at 10:00 am 2 Comments »
    PES 2015 is making its debut on the Xbox One and PS4 in addition to 360 and PS3 this fall. Today Konami released the first feature details on the game with a heavy focus on gameplay-related enhancements along with the introduction of a mode similar to that of Ultimate Team in EA Sports titles and MyTeam in NBA 2K. It's no surprise PES would add a revenue-generating mode following the success of those others. MyClub, which seems a blatant rip-off of the MyTeam name, allows players and man...

    EA Sports officially announced the Ultimate Editions of Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, and FIFA 15 this week - though the details on them had been posted three weeks earlier by retailers. For $10 over the standard price consumers will receive up to $40 in Ultimate Team content.

    The case that could change the landscape of college athletics, and was the catalyst that led to the cancellation of the NCAA Football series, has come to a conclusion. The decision in Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA is now fully in the hands of U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken who is expected to make the ruling in August. Throughout the trial observers noted the plaintiffs were dominating the proceedings, and that it seemed as though the NCAA was more concerned with cultivating arguments for appea...
