Looking ahead to the 2014 Christmas shopping season, gamers and studios have a lot to look forward to. Christmas spending is expected to be the highest in years, with PC gaming surging while Microsoft and Sony both promote their own game consoles.




Here is what Blake Jorgenson, EA chief financial officer, noted in a recent interview: "A year ago, there were only a handful of titles. We had five of them, so we benefited from that." The addition of "new software coming into the marketplace - our software, as well as competitors' software" should make this year different. "I think the trend is positive."


Gamers looking to purchase a Microsoft Xbox One or Sony PlayStation 4 will see lower prices and a wider selection of game titles to choose from - as retailers also show keen interest in bringing customers into their stores.
