Saw a really interesting interview with Andy Wilson the CEO at Electronic Arts, he’s someone who I have a lot of respect for.

As you can imagine this part brought a smile to my face…

“If you think about every form of entertainment media that we have, the one thing that’s been most disruptive is streaming. Books to your Kindle, TV through Netflix, music through Spotify. It’s changed everything. Ownership, engagement, and it’s absolutely changed the enjoyment model. There are lots of things that are going to change. Scale, in a networked world, is extremely important. You are going to have to have the core digital platform, the engine, the talent. At the core, you’re going to have to have to be able to get experiences to players at any time, anywhere, on any device they own. Streaming tech is going to play a really big part in that.

Another interview:

“For many of those things, we actually think the time horizon is about five years-plus, but things like cloud and streaming we believe is in the 2-5 year time frame. When we think about subscription, we’re already seeing return from that and the combination of that with streaming in that 2-5 year time horizon could be very meaningful in terms of revenue addition for us.”
