EA not sure if they will increase prices yet
Some publishers have seen the next generation of consoles as an opportunity to hike game prices, but EA is not sure they will follow suit.
“I don’t really want to weigh in on that yet,” said EA COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen during an earnings call. “We’ll address that as we get closer to more games coming into the next-gen console transition.” Take-Two and Activision Blizzard have already bumped prices.
