EA turn Dead Space 3 into generic manshooter because research says “the series is too scary”on July 20th, 2012 at 5:14 pm
Yep you read the title right.
EA are turning Dead Space 3 into another dull, unimaginative, brown manshooter because according to EA Games’ marketing boss Laura Miele the games are too scary and that the change of tone is a reaction to “product research.”
“We were doing research coming out of Dead Space 1 and 2 and we’re really proud of those products. We received feedback to understand how we can take the game out to even more consumers,” she stated.
“We were hearing feedback that they love the thriller game, but it was pretty scary, and the obvious next step was that they wanted to play with someone. So we introduced co-op into the game.
“Personally, I would rather go to scary movie with my husband rather than sit at home with the lights out watching one on my own. We’re looking for that to reach out to consumers that perhaps were not open to Dead Space 1 and 2.”
What absolute bollocks.
With Battlefield 4 already announced by EA for PS4 and Xbox720, the next generation is going to be a borefest of epic proportions – which is why I’ve no intention of investing. At all. Ever.
