EA's still fresh CEO Andrew Wilson has talked about the potential for virtual reality, where he has talked about using VR as a possible fourth "modality" of gaming.
Wilson notes three types of play styles right now: "Lean Back" experiences, where a player is using a home entertainment system. "Lean In" is where the player is using either a console or PC for first-person shooters, where they're physically leaning in and concentrating on the game, and "Lean Over" which is where the player is using either a smartphone or tablet.
Wilson sees VR as the "fourth" way of playing, citing it as "Get In", where a gamer would use headsets or "some hologram that evolves out of your living room floor." This isn't a full confirmation that EA is supporting VR in any form, but it's great to see them talking about it. We've seen Oculus VR secure EA's former Senior VP as its new Head of Worldwide Publishing.
