EA SPORTSAnnual FIFA games could be a thing of the past
In the interview, EA chief Andrew Wilson suggested the idea that in the future, EA might instead turn Federation Internationale de Football Association and Madden into a "365-day, live service", where players might pay either a subscription fee, or purchase DLC updates, to keep their version of the game relevant and up-to-date.
What do you think of Electronic Arts dropping yearly releases of FIFA, Madden NFL, and MaddenNHL and offer Games as service by streaming them through monthly or yearly subscriptions?
The video-game industry has been shifting from sales of physical discs to online delivery over the past few years.
Would you prefer a subscription-based service or do you like get a yearly release of FIFA, Madden and National Hockey League. This also includes selling additional content, which usually involves new gear, campaigns, levels, accessories and other in-game purchases.

The buyers included a mix of foreign and domestic institutional investors, said another source who did not wish to be named. The block trade by Three Pillars was priced at Rs 481 per share, 6.4 per cent lower than Tuesday's closing value.
"There, every four years we release a new big code drop, and we offer incremental change over time". "We can really think about those games as a 365-day, live service". Instead, they might only have to pay a regular fee in order to download and start playing new content.
Now, there could be plenty reasons for why EA Sports would ditch annual releases and opt for a subscription service. Wilson didn't mention pricing or a launch date for the planned subscription service for its sports games, as pointed out by Engadget.
"The greatest disrupter to the consumption of entertainment media in the last five years has been the combination of streaming plus subscription", Wilson said.
Wilson didn't lay out a road map for how this change might be implemented, but I'm sure many sports fans would be interested in purchasing a full-priced game once and adding to it with roster updates and Story Mode expansions in future seasons.
"How does a Madden game that exists in the cloud manifest on your mobile phone, one minute at a time?"
