EA believes launch titles were much higher quality on the Xbox One and PS4

New PC style architecture a major factor

EA's new CEO Andrew Wilson believes that the quality of the launch titles on the new generation of consoles is far better than on previous generations.

Wilson explained to the Credit Suisse Annual Technology Conference that the simplified PC-style architecture of the PS4 and Xbox One have allowed them to create far better launch titles that before.

"One of the nuances here is that this transition, so this console cycle,” Wilson stated. “both Sony and Microsoft platforms have simplified their architecture and simplified their tool sets." EA believes launch titles were much higher quality on the Xbox One and PS4

He continued, "In the last transition we [spent] the first two to three years actually just trying to figure out how to get the most out of the boxes, and particularly because the two boxes were very different. So the good news now is I think that we have reached the level of quality at launch that we didn't get through last time. And our teams are already starting to think about investment in new innovation for the future."
