lolz, that's really funny, but honestly I hate when they do stuff like this. What is the point besides hurting the consumer, this doesn't sway people as much as they think. People will wait for Andriod is not like they are going to say oh man PvZ 2 is delayed on Andriod let me get an IOS system now!!

I just want it on my Vita.

I'm pretty sure Apple is trying to create the effect that they get the games sooner than android and that can sway people.

Titanfall anyone... anyway it sucks that people are paying to keep content away from people.

That's not cool if true, but that is business.

Apple is a bag of scum, they have great products if you like being told what to like by Apple and what you can do with them.

They aren't that bad. They sell tools and software.

The tools have specific software support.. There are well informed apple customers as well as the "sheep" - id be pretty stuck without some of my apple-only hardware and software. Other people wouldn't be. Apple aren't controlling my preferences, there just aren't good alternatives for some usage scenarios.

I understand where you are coming from, "the right tool for the job" as the open source pragmatists say.

I have coworkers that have iPhones and are very happy with them, mostly, though...I have seen the generic hipster with them trying to impress each other with the latest model.

so what company is the bigger scumbags

apple offering money to ea to control the market OR
ea for taking money so that apple could control the mkt

maybe both?

1OddWorld1210d ago

Both are bad think SimCity debacle earlier this year.

madpuppy1210d ago

they are both trash, but, there is one difference between the two, a good portion of Apple owners are hipster douche bags that think they are individuals, but what they really are are mindless clones of each other that consider the purchase of an Apple product as some sort of pathetic status symbol.

I love when I resonate with a well observed comment.

Couldn't have said it better myself = )
