“The average consumer tie-ratio was about three pieces of software per console”
At the UBS Global Technology Conference, Blake Jorgenson, the CFO of Electronic Arts revealed that as far as the average PS4 gamer goes, they are buying three games per console, and one third of those games happen to be titles from EA.
“This is a much smoother transition for them and it looks like Microsoft’s will be similar. We had a great weekend relative to the console. It looks like the average consumer tie-ratio was about three pieces of software per console, which is exactly what we [projected]… And it looks like one out of every three pieces of software was coming out of Electronic Arts,” Jorgensen said.
“The biggest concern now is making sure there’s enough product in the stores because obviously consumers want to buy software to go with the new boxes.”
One should not be really surprised given that EA has the biggest and the largest gaming franchises like Battlefield, Madden NFL, FIFA and Need for Speed, all of which are releasing on the PS4 and Xbox One.
