EA To Support Android Gaming

According to EA’s chief financial officer Eric Brown, Electronic Arts has decided to push the Android platform in addition to the iPhone. Citing his own market projections, Brown said that they expect “a lot to happen” in Android’s future.

Talking to investors at the Deutsche Bank 2010 Technology Conference, he mentioned that EA expects Android to have 25 per cent of the market in 2014, compared to 11 per cent for the iPhone.

There’s a lot to happen in the future in Android, and we’re trying to position our mobile business to take advantage of that trend.

However, then he went on to say that Android needs “the deployment of an [Apple]App Store equivalent for the Android operating system” for this to happen, even while Android already has an Apple-style app store. Then he added that the transition from dumbphones to iPhone and Android is like “like going through a PS2 to PS3 transition”.

I think he really meant from PlayStation to PS2. Or maybe we don’t have to pay much attention to Mr Brown. [Pocketgamer]
