Reuters: Comcast To Sell EA Games Through Cable Boxes

on Monday, May. 5th

Put another nail in the coffin of the console business. Reuters is reporting that the cable and ISP giant is close to making a deal with Electronic Arts to sell that company’s games directly through cable boxes:

Comcast Corp may soon allow customers using its cloud-connected X1 cable box system to buy games from Electronic Arts Inc through their televisions, according to five sources briefed on the plans.

Put a solid version of Madden in every Comcast-using American household and how badly do you wound Microsoft and Sony?

By Neil deGrasse Tyson’s mustache! These set-top box wars are brutal.
