EA ønsker at blive en streaming-tjeneste ligesom Netflix


Electronic Arts har længe haft tjenesterne EA Access samt Origin Acces på PC samt Xbox One, men nu har spilgiganten udtalt at de ønsker at gå et skridt længere. Ved dette års Deutsche Bank Technology-konference udtalte Chris Evenden, at de arbejder på at udgive en streaming-tjeneste:

"We've been building an infrastructure both from a product and a marketing perspective so we can move our slate across to new platforms, and we can move with our games across to new platforms as well," Evenden said. "So all of these things, we've been working on for five or more years now, actually. But I think it's inevitable that the gaming entertainment world will move in much the same way that the music and video entertainment worlds have already moved, in the sense that people have moved from an ownership model to an access model. And you'll see that in gaming, just as you've seen it with Spotify and Netflix in other media businesses."

Udvikleren er dog i stand til at se de problemer der følger med, da langt fra alle lande har en god nok internet struktur til at det kunne virke problemfrit:

"That infrastructure barrier is still there, but it's shrinking very rapidly, and we think in the next couple of years, you'll see some major technological announcements that will prove to be commercially significant in the next three to five years."

Streaming-tjenesten ville kunne blive brugt på et Smart TV, så i stedet for at skulle købe både en konsol samt spil vil det være muligt at spille FIFA 18, Star Wars Battlefront II samt de øvrige EA-spil direkte fra sit fjernsyn for kun 9,99 euro om måneden.

Er det en model du er interesseret i, eller foretrækker du en fysisk platform?
