    EA's Single Identity

    Post by Orango19 on Mon Mar 04, 2013 2:46 pm

    http://www.joystiq.com/2013/02/27/report-ea-completes-cross-platform-single-identity-service/

    EA has completed development of a service that will allow users to have a single identity across game platforms – including Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iPhone, Facebook, and Origin – and to play with friends across these platforms.

    Said service will let players begin a game on one platform and continue playing on another, according to Games Beat, and will allow players on different platforms to communicate with each other as well as play games with them. Establishing the service took more than 18 months and involved 1,500 engineers, and there's no word yet on when it will be integrated into EA's games.

    EA will be able to use data collected across these platforms to enhance its game recommendation and promotion systems, taking a few hours to suggest a new game to individual players rather than the current layover of a few days.

    "This will have a material effect on our costs for our digital revenues and a positive effect on our revenues," EA Chief Technology Officer Rajat Taneja tells Games Beat. "We think this will be a great differentiator for our company."


    This could be an amazing tool; both for honest players and 360 hackers wanting to troll new people. lol

    the service would cost 10$ per second were talking about the guys who forced Dead space 3 into having the apparently horrible/easily avoidable micro-transactions

    I've never liked EA before, but if this is true, then they're definitely going up on top 1 developers. This is one of the few things i've always wanted to see, so i'd be happy if it was true. If it is, i wouldn't complain if other developers followed in their footsteps. happy

    It's EA. There will probably be a subscription fee and other ways of stealing money for something that should be free, it's what they love doing best. Making money from nothing.

    Any Battlefield? Any Mass Effect? Any EA SPORTS game? Any Dead Space? Crysis 1? Any Sims game? Any Command & Conquer (except 4)? Any Need for Speed? Any Burnout? Mirror's Edge? Star Wars Old Republic? Any Medal of Honor (except the last one)? Dragon Age series?

    There are plenty of good games from EA, yeah they are a damn evil market/money-focused company, but that doesn't change the fact they have some pretty good games, people tend to give them for granted because of hate.

    1500 engineers for 18 months doesn't sound cheap. You know, my 2cent.
