Electronic Arts Says PS4 and Xbox One ‘Nowhere Near’ Peaking in this Cycle

EA’s CFO Is bullish on both consoles.

Posted By | On 19th, Nov. 2015 Under News


There have been a number of reports about how well both the Xbox One and PS4 have been selling over the last few months and while some people have been really impressed with those numbers, Electronic Arts says the two consoles haven’t even hit their peak. One of the reasons the consoles have such a bright future ahead of them is because they are willing to adapt and change, without rolling out a brand new console.

Chief Financial Officer of EA Blake Jorgensen recently gave a talk at the USB Global Tech Conference when he talked about how well the companies are doing. “There are new consoles out with more storage space and so you’ll see that as a way of driving additional console sales. I think you will see a lot more bundling over the next couple of years because it’s always been a popular way to drive consoles. We feel like there is plenty of growth to go in the cycle. We’re nowhere near the peak in the console cycle at all,” he said.

Among the examples as to how the Xbox One and the PS4 are adapting is the backwards compatibility of Microsoft’s console. While the PS4 has avoided doing that in the strictest sense of the world, Sony has been using PlayStation Now in order to allow people to play PS3 games that they loved. There is likely about two more years, at the very least in this particular generation of console. It will be interesting to see what the two companies have up their sleeves over that time.

    no where near peeking lmao battlefront 720p/900p thats hardly a good sign of a lot of power left

    • Cypher-Unknown

      I think he’s talking about console sales rather than their power.

    • Psionicinversion

      Yeah realised that after but still true on both counts though

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Poor programming and old game engine we are told that caused that.

    • Psionicinversion

      Pathetic hardware caused that and the games are only going to get heavier and heavier graphically and with no increase in power your console is scrap metal. I get 1080p ultra 60fps with a lowly 280x

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      No it’s not, did we asked for them to use DX12?
      We didn’t and they never used it

    • Psionicinversion

      Good job there not using dx12 because pc would embarrass your consoles even more

  • Riggerto

    Surely there is way more than 2 more years in this console gen.
    Maybe another 4… even 5?

    • Psionicinversion

      I don’t know will be 2018 at the earliest though probably more like 2019/20 though

  • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

    There is more than 2. Maybe the game station only has 2.
    But we have asked for the Xbox One to be a 10 year console life span.
    There Layers that have yet to be unlocked from what our research teams have told us.

  • Mr Xrat

    The Dudbox certainly has.

    • Truth™

      So has the 900PS4

      Blops 3 is dynamic rez
      Battlefront is 900P
      Uncharted 4 is 900P
      Horizon will be 900P with how it went 0 at 1080P on stage
      PS2 emulation is 720P
      PSVR is 720P

      What a failure of a “Next Gen” console. Losing an “exclusive” every week to the PC and providing such weak content

      The tears of sony marketers grow more salty every day as the PC destroys it and Nintendo will end them
