Digital content is somewhat of an uncharted, and newly burgeoning territory for the big four. Steam has the game computer you can download it free. Nintendo, EA, and Ubisoft are the three big ones. Ubisoft did this, but Nintendo refused to go this path; EA (Electronic Arts) will go under with EA points this year, and a lot of consumers do not have a Wii. The big four need to figure out ways to protect and nurture their content. And with millions of people buying games on PC every day, they need all the help they can get to survive.
While some people have a Wii, others have a PlayStation 3, a PlayStation Portable, or a PC. EA left the Wii in the late fall as there was no support for new games. The PS3 was cleaned up to get ready for 60 FPS games, and the PSP is a pocket-sized powerhouse that can handle PS3 games in FHD. EA did not want to abandon PSP gamers, so an emulator was built. EA points is EA’s game card, just like a debit card.
There was a strong social component in EA’s Sports games, and EA has now built a companion service that allows users to share their EA points and game content with friends. The EA content can not only be used for the game itself, but also for saleable content (like songs and movies) and digital goods (like t-shirts and videos). Users will also have the choice of which content they can sell back, and they will also have a secure virtual wallet that lets users track their earnings.
The games they create are listed in a database that the service can search, to make finding the right game and the right game content quick and easy. There is also a currency that will allow people to buy things like songs and movies on YouTube, a store that can sell those things, and points that can be used for virtual goods. d2c66b5586
