Peter Moore to replace John Riccitiello as EA CEO?

Are you in the mood for a whopper of a rumor? Let's hope, because we've got one here for you: anonymous sources tell Game Front that Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello is about to be let go, and that current EA Sports boss Peter Moore will step in to take his place. It goes without saying that you should probably take this with a grain of salt (or five), but if this is true, it could mean huge things for Electronic Arts, which has been experiencing some stock price woes recently.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: May 9, 2012

Happy Wednesday, everyone. Well, CTIA is starting to coming to a close but we had plenty of stuff to cover today. To start things off, there's actually some bad news - Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD for AT&T cancelled. Moving right along, here's something that is pretty cool - Google Maps for Android gets indoor walking directions.

Zynga paid too much for OMGPOP says EA CEO

Zynga paid too much for OMGPOP says EA CEO

Sometimes in life we all make impulse buys that we regret. But not often does it involve a $180 million purchase. As such, Zynga doesn't have a lot of company to console itself if it ever has buyer's remorse when it comes to OMGPOP, the one-trick pony that developed the incredibly popular mobile game Draw Something. The only problem is that Draw Something is starting to fizzle out just a matter of weeks after the acquisition happened.

Minecraft developer says EA is “methodically destroying” gaming

Minecraft developer says EA is “methodically destroying” gaming

If you were inclined to feel pity for international megacorporations, you might just set your sympathetic gaze on Electronic Arts - because at the moment, no one else is. After EA released a new batch of "indie" games on the PC gaming distribution network Steam, the developer of the incredibly popular Minecraft series had some choice words for the multi-billion-dollar company. Markus "Notch" Persson has become something of a gaming demagogue since Minecraft exploded onto the independent scene, and he made it clear in no uncertain terms that EA was pushing into an area where it doesn't belong.

Today the folks at Electronic Arts have sent out a message to all iOS users of the app Rock Band saying they'll not be able to play the game at all after May 31st. This not only proves EA is as The Consumerist said it was in their last annual awards show: the Worst Company in America, it shows the fragility of the app universe as a whole. What EA has revealed to millions of unsuspecting app downloaders around the world is this: when you pay for an application in the mobile world, you don't actually own the app itself, you just own the license for the app - and your ownership is not indefinite.

EA’s Mass Effect 3 online multiplayer events barred on PS3

The online component of EA and Bioware smash hit Mass Effect 3 is a little bit muddled on the PS3. To help keep things interesting in the online multiplayer world, developer Bioware has been running numerous promotions, such as the ability to gain extra XP or receiving bonuses for completing various tasks. However, perhaps unknown to those playing the game on the Xbox 360 or PC, none of this stuff has been making its way to the PS3 version of the game.
