This seems like a bold claim from EA and most likely highly inaccurate. I only see three reasons they would make this claim:
- The systems are going to be much more expensive than what we have seen in the past.
- They are trying to give some reasoning for soon to be increased game costs.
- They are trying to capture some of the PC gamer market.
The cynic that I am, I am fearing that it is going to be the higher game cost. Consoles have never been threatened by PC gamers and I don't think that many people would be highly surprised by a $600 system, at least not enough to warrant this type of statement from EA.
What do you think?
