EA's Dedication To "Quality And Innovation" Holds True

A little over two years ago, EA was as roundly chastised and despised by PlayStation 3 owners as Activision is today (well, the dislike of Activision seems to break all platform boundaries, but nonetheless). But these days, it's hard to argue with EA's productions.

We know Dead Space 2 is definitely in the works, and the original remains one of our favorite games of the generation. Mirror's Edge was another title that, while not entirely polished, it was still innovative and provided us with a fantastic foundation for the future (let's hope the sequel isn't far off). Those guys at DICE have really provided us with some great titles, and that includes the EA-published Battlefield franchise; Bad Company 2 is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated FPSs of next year. Most recently, EA handled the publishing duties for Bioware's excellent Dragon Age: Origins and in general, EA's commitment to "quality and innovation," made some time ago, has held. Companies like to make such statements for the sake of PR reasons but hey, you can't take away what they've done. Who didn't love Need for Speed: SHIFT? Hmm? And EA is quick to remind us they've made good on their promise.

During a conference call, EA COO John Schappert referenced the increasing review scores for EA games. In 2007, they only managed to ship 5 titles that held an average review score of 80% or higher, but that number increased dramatically to 13 in 2008 and in 2009, they've already shipped 17 that managed to crack the 80% average barrier. Schappert concluded by saying, "No other game company can match our track record for quality." Well, we figure they're allowed to boast a bit. They've earned it.
