"for the love of f***ing god," get more commercial titles out on to XBLA and PSN. Like EA's BF1943.
The danger is titles getting lost in all that digital content, but there's "that danger at retail," or even car shopping. XBLA "in more danger" than PSN.
"For the love of f***ing god, put some commercial titles on XBLA. EA's the first company to really go out there and say 'Hey, we're speaking to our console consumer...' Let's think a little bit more about what the consumer wants," Jaffe said, reports .
He made the speech at this year's DICE summit at the Rock Resort in Las Vegas. Jaffe also pointed out the problem of product visibility on these digital platforms as a result of too much content, but that isn't anything new.
"There's absolutely that danger," he said. "But there's that danger at retail, or when you go to buy a car," adding that Xbox Live Arcade was "in more danger" than the PlayStation Store because of greater content available to users.
That's what marketing is for though he pointed out, to raise awareness and drown out the competition of rival brands. EA's Battlefield 1943 released on XBLA and PSN to both rave reviews and stellar sales. It's basically BF1942 but super awesome fun.
Should publishers be putting out more commerical titles on XBLA/PSN?
