    Xbox 720 could see timed-exclusivity of EA titles and DLC going into the next generation, sources have claimed. A deal is expected to be announced between both parties at Microsoft’s console reveal event, currently rumoured for April 26th.

    The rumoured event will allegedly see a deal announced between EA and Microsoft, that could give Xbox 720 / Durango first dibs on all EA titles for a while.
    CVG’s sources have told the site that the terms of the deal are not concrete, but given EA’s approach of launching games across all formats the deal will likely amount to timed exclusives, rather than Xbox 720-only titles. Timed-exclusive DLC could also be on the cards.
    We now know that both the EA-published IP from Respawn Entertainment will appear at E3 2013and that Battlefield 4 has gone next-gen. Could these games launch as timed Xbox 720 exclusives?
    We’ll keep our ears to the ground on this one, but I did find it odd that EA didn’t appear at Sony’sPS4 announcement last week, given its track record of appearing at every showcase under the sun.

    Where did you find this mate? Seems quite interesting. Not too sure that it will happen though as EA won't be making any profit releasing the games earlier on Xbox than PS3

    Oh god, Microsoft why EA? :cry:

    I don't like EA because of their micro transaction bullshit.
