It's anything but difficult to stay here as a recreations author or rocker intellectual and rail against the act of distributers requesting more cash from gamers who have effectively burned through $60 on another title. Be that as it may, hello, turns out a lot of individuals love doing it (and are doing it), particularly with regards to EA Sports' defining moments.

Despite titles like FIFA and Madden releasing as full-price games, some of their biggest draws in recent years have been their “Ultimate” modes, where players can purchase decks of fake cards to bolster the rosters of their personal, Ultimate team.

EA revealed this week (via GI.biz) that they make $1.3 billion on “extra content” a year, which is all extra digital stuff, like DLC, season passes, etc. Around half of that figure, though—$650 million—comes just from EA Sports’ Ultimate Team.

God  that is a lot of money on top of the money people have already spent on the game.
