It's been less than two months since John Riccitiello resigned as CEO of Electronic Arts. In that time, much has changed for the publisher as it gears up for the next generation.

Riccitiello shared his thoughts on what Sony and Microsoft need to do in the next generation to ensure that it isn't the last cycle of living room gaming hardware. In the piece published by Kotaku, the former executive discusses DRM, the importance of a healthy supply of hardware at launch, the need to focus on games, and the price of entry.

He pointedly urges Sony and Microsoft to not forget "who brought them to the dance in the first place. Gamers." It's a fascinating read, and one that might change some consumers' perspectives on a man who has been much maligned by the average customer.
