How Star Wars Battlefront 2 Highlights Everything Wrong With EA

On this episode of Transition, regulars Rishi Alwani and Mikhail Madnani join host Pranay Parab to talk about Star Wars Battlefront 2, Ashes Cricket, Xbox One X, Super Mario Odyssey, and Far Cry 5. The discussion begins with Star Wars Battlefront 2 and the controversy surrounding the game. EA once again has gone too far in trying to make the game make money. EA’s response to the issue has been ridiculed as much as any company's response in the history of gaming. We talk about the negative publicity around the game and wonder whether it will ever recover from this. There's also mention of the single-player campaign and EA’s history of aggressive monetisation.

Then we talk about Ashes Cricket, its release date and pricing, and everything you need to know. We discuss why Big Ant possibly chose Ashes licence and whether its strategy makes sense. Then we talk about the market for cricket games and whether the pricing is likely to turn a profit for the developers. What we expect in terms of sales for this game rounds off our discussion.

Next up, Xbox One X and all the things you need to know about Microsoft's latest gaming console. We answer questions around the quality of the console, the 4K utopia that Microsoft wants to sell, the games available on the console, and the biggest question - download sizes. We also make note of the dealbreakers that you should be aware of before making this purchase. Finally, we talk about Far Cry 5, which is going to be playable at a gaming expo right here in India.

We wrap up this episode of Transition by talking about the games we’ve been playing this week, such as Super Mario OdysseyStar Wars Battlefront 2Halo 5 Guardians, and Doom on Nintendo Switch.
