Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 will no doubt be going toe-to-toe for the best games and content in the industry, but it looks like the Xbox 720 has won a round over PlayStation 4 with an alleged exclusive deal with EA.
According to a report from VG24/7 on Wednesday, the Xbox 720 is apparently going to receive a timed-exclusivity deal with EA, its titles and DLC for those games that will debut on next-generation platforms.
The deal is expected to be officially revealed at the rumored April 26th event, which supposedly is where the Xbox 720 will be unveiled.
This deal will provide the Xbox 720 with a first go at a lot of EA’s content before Sony even gets a chance to port the games out to the PS4.
EA has a long history of porting their gaming across multi-platforms, so it’s extremely unlikely that the company will not be porting games over to the PS4 at some point.
This deal will likely be a timed-exclusivity agreement, meaning Xbox 720 will be the only platform a game can be found on for the initial launch of EA’s titles, and then the PS4 will be allowed to sell them under their banner after a certain amount of time has passed.
EA has revealed that they have 15 next-generation titles currently under development, some of which have been revealed like “Dragon Age 3” and “Battlefield 4,” so if this is true, it could be a major advantage for the Xbox 720.
