I wish I could Curse then I would say what I really feel about EA (Eat A** ).

Goldby19d ago (Edited 19d ago )

well at the end of the day, EA is all about the green back so you could say eat A$$

indyman7719d ago

LOL.....I like your version too Goldby!

They seem to be having an abysmal week.

Wonder what they're thankful for on this day.

Since I started with my online business, I earn $35 every 15 minutes. It sounds unbelievable but you won’t forgive yourself if you don't check it out. Learn more about it here>> http://tiny.cc/-online-jobs

EA got you beat in terms of BS.

BenjaMan6421d ago

Uh oh. EA sure opened a Pandora's Box. Wonder how all this will turn out.

Malphite20d ago

Hopefully in better designed games.

indyman7720d ago

Hopefully in no micro transactions.

shaenoide20d ago

No it's Pandora's lootbox ^^

nommers20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

At least it’s not Al Gore’s lockbox

Hopefully with the end of DLC and MTs, game publishers feeling entitled to endless profits off of a single purchase, even if it means $80 games.

Ashlen21d ago

I applaud the effort but c'mon 9000 people won't even register as a slow day for EA. If you get 900,000 people to stop playing maybe EA might notice it. But I mean these people still bought the game, if you want them to feel it stop buying the game.

BLow20d ago

Didn't this game sell 1 million in Germany alone and just on PS4? 9000 seems like nothing but I guess you have to start somewhere. Like the old saying, "Rome wasn't built in a day".

DJStotty20d ago

well if those 9000 people were planning on spending £20-50 each on points.

Thats £180,000 - 450,000. Sure not millions but close to half a million. That is still alot to lose even to someone like EA.

Just think if the 9000 are the Youtubers that spend 1000s on Fifa Points for publicised pack openings? Then it starts to be a lot of money

shaggy230320d ago

When EA makes three quarters of a BILLION from Loot crates in games like FIFA, they wont miss half a million.

DJStotty20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

They dont individualise all assets. This coupled with whats happening with battlefront all adds up to accumulated losses.

They will miss every penny

Godmars29020d ago

Would likely require complaints like this to be 1/3 of total sales before EA would even start to worry.

Fist4achin20d ago

Unfortunately, youre right. 9000 is a decent amount, but hardly a blip on a game that has worldwide sales.

Relientk7721d ago

Good I hope that number grows to... Over 9000!

Apocalypse Shadow20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

I was waiting for the dragon ball reference when I saw the title. Lol!

Ding ding ding. You win... Well not really. I don't have any prizes to give out unfortunately.

Edit: okay I got something
