Rival gaming systems should make way for a single open platform, according to Gerhard Florin, senior executive at Electronic Arts, and head of international publishing.

"We want an open, standard platform which is much easier than having five which are not compatible. We're platform agnostic and we definitely don't want to have one platform which is a walled garden."

EA currently produces titles for more than 14 different gaming systems, including consoles, portable devices and PCs.

"I am not sure how long we will have dedicated consoles - but we could be talking up to 15 years," Mr Florin added.
