EA Sports has announced that they will have exclusive content available on Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One home entertainment media device. The games for the console will include long running titles such as Madden NFL, their NBA titles as well as their newly acquired UFC license, featuring caged fights from the biggest MMA promotion in North America. This also follows closely on the heels of EA acknowledging that FIFA 14 would be available on the Xbox One.
Electronic Arts has positioned themselves to take full advantage of Microsoft's next-generation media device, leveraging themselves next to the Xbox One's social media and network connectivity functions. This means that it's easier than ever to get into the games you want to play, share your content with friends, family members or rivals, as well as engage in the latest discussions and watch the latest media from EA Sports titles all at the convenience of the Windows 8 powered Xbox One operating system.
This news comes shortly after Electronic Arts has announced that they are not supporting the Wii U with their sports titles this year and FIFA 14 will not be available on Nintendo's home console, neither will Madden NFL 14 or any NBA titles. If you want your sports fix you'll have to buy an Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
If you're looking for something to interact with friends, Skype, chat, socialize and integrate your life into a network of tablet-style media hubs and voice activated content thanks to Kinect, then the Xbox One is probably going to be your top choice as a new generation home media device. You can access all the streaming and casual content you desire without even having to touch a button.
