Peter Moore, the president of EA Sports, predicts a future in which the standout FIFA series transitions from annual disc-based releases to a more persistent online game.

Moore, speaking to MCV, said that EA Sports' FIFA title needs to provide a persistent world reflecting the year-round quality of international football. "This year there was, what, a 15 day off-season? And even then we were thinking about it and reading about it," Moore said. "That's the space football occupies in our lives and that's how we've got to look at it."

Moore did not completely envision the end of retail discs in this future, saying he believes there still will be disc-based games going on five years from now. Still, "We need to provide that persistent world, maybe sometimes powered by discs, maybe on social networks, or the cloud or whatever," he said.

DISCUSSION

Maybe I'm oldschool, but I don't like online gaming. I buy FIFA every year (Since I jumped ship from PES) and I play it everyday for at least an hour until the next game in the series comes out. In all that time I must have played 3 games online (Won 2 lost 1) I really don't enjoy it.
