EA To Adopt A "Customer-First" Stance For Future Used Games
The used game debate continues to rage, and Electronic Arts is aware of its importance.
During an E3 analyst call, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said they're currently working on a "gamer-first" used game policy for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles.
He acknowledges that it has been a major topic of discussion this week, and his company is looking to formulate a strategy based on information released by Sony and Microsoft. It's all about putting the customer first, though, as EA wants to continue to have a relationship with used games that "is a very positive experience" for everyone involved. Microsoft has allowed publishers to choose whether or not used games will be allowed, while Sony announced that the PS4 will have "no gating restrictions."
The latter earned the biggest cheer of the night, by the way.
