Speaking with GameIndustry International in a lengthy interview, COO (that’s Chief Operating Officer for anyone) of EA Peter Moore conceded that gamers will take longer to be convinced that new gameplay models and innovations would be beneficial. Here are some choice quotes from the interview:
“I think we’re going into almost a golden age of gaming, where it doesn’t matter where you are, at any time, any place, any price point, any amount of time, there’s a game available to you,” Moore said.
“I think the challenge sometimes is that the growth of gaming… there’s a core that doesn’t quite feel comfortable with that. Your readers, the industry in particular. I don’t get frustrated, but I scratch my head at times and say, ‘Look. These are different times.’
