Electronic Arts CEO Comments On The State Of Social Gaming

Electronic Arts' CEO John Riccitiello had a few things to say about the supposed declining state of social gaming.

He had some positive things to say like, "The companies that are now suffering will have another day." He also commented that among the lessons that can be learned is that “Consumers won’t pay for crap," which begs the question, if they won't buy anything, are they still considered consumers at that point?

The quotes come from a conference on Friday where Riccitiello spoke on the supposed boom of social gaming. At the conference he also said that "Great gaming starts with truly good entertainment, not viral marketing involving spamming your friends to get a shovel."
