    EA CEO on Westwood, Bullfrog and Origin purchases: we "blew it"

    Just caught this on Firingsquad; the original Wired article is here. Anyway, I think it's interesting that EA have fronted up to this now and together with the way Riccitiello was reported to have championed the Bioware purchase against some internal EA resistance seems to point to a...

    Conflict of interest?

    While scanning through my usual round of tech and gaming websites this evening I came across this seemingly odd remark in an article titled, "What's Killing Game Development" from the usually quite authoritative Jakub at Firingsquad (emphasis added): Not wanting to dredge up any buried...

    DailyTech is reporting that Microsoft have increased the game size limit for XBLA games from 50MB to 150MB: What are the likely implications for Arena? Was Gaia Industries anticipating a bigger limit and designing Arena around that or if not, will they be able to exploit the additional...
