EA Sports Division Has Hosted Over Billion Online Games
With the major success of the addictive online components of EA’s sports games, it’s no surprise to see the franchise reach such a high landmark. A few examples of where the success has come from is FIFA 10 alone, which has already passed the 40 million games played online mark.
Riccitiello had this to say:
“This year alone, in just the package goods business of EA Sports, one part of our company, we’ve hosted over a billion online games. A billion online games. That’s a staggering number,”
This amount of activity could be equated with that of a country.
These are where people playing an hour, two hours, three hours: it’s the productivity of a small nation, just wrapped up in EA Sports online.
