Has EA Shot Itself In The Foot?

Quote: "You know, for a very long time [redacted] have defended Electronic Arts and their practices, sometimes opting to look the other way in favour of all the good they’ve done for gaming. (You may laugh now.) Then a few things occurred to [redacted], a few more transgressions were made that were slightly less forgivable, and of course, a certain statement about DRM was made, and [redacted] finally gave up trying.

Like the bad parts of a person you have feelings for, sometimes it’s difficult to see them or admit to them being there. But once you do, then the floodgates open and suddenly everything they do begins to irritate or annoy and nothing is ever the same any more.

Hi Electronic Arts.

You broke [redacted] heart. "

EA needs to shoot itself in the face.

Shall we start a kickstart fund for the funeral costs?

Dark_Overlord1090d ago

I'd rather a kickstarter to buy every EA hater a shovel, that way we could dig a hole straight to hell and hand them over personally :)

yugovega1090d ago

no. they have the money flooding in cause "gamers" are crazy enough to keep dishing it out.

famoussasjohn1090d ago

Well, the games that I want are sometimes published by them. I can't control that. I need my fix man! There's only about 2-3 games that I'd consider buying under EA though, so they aren't getting much from me.

Nice article, though I don't think I'm as optimistic about their future policy changes as you are. Gamers have a tendency to become very accepting of bs policies like these as time goes by, and the way EA has been PR'ing these little "scandals" suggests that's what they're banking on.

Well why would they change their strategy?

All they need to do when something goes wrong is hunker down, wait out the rage for around a month, and once everyone's forgotten about it, and stops reporting on it, claim that most people weren't bothered by the problem of the day.

It's worked pretty well so far, gamers have short memories and loose wallets.

Well the problem is EA has been slowly going downhill for years. You're right about gamers, but PR isn't their only problem.
