EA Gets Perfect Score On Corporate Equality Index

Twinfinite writes, "So remember when a bunch of people got together last year and decided that EA was the worst company in America; worse than Bank of America, Wal Mart, etc.? Well, lo and behold it turns out that evaluating a company entirely based on whether it charges for on-disc DLC or has launch issues with its games might not be the greatest metric to use."

Well then... let us applaud thee!

great.. now go make some more games :)

Elwenil1993d ago

Or better yet, how about making the games they already sold worth the money we paid for them?

Loadedklip1993d ago

Agree ... good to hear. Congrats to EA.

But please now get to work on getting these games out in working order. Thanks.

What everyone else says. Now they need to get Beta Field, out of Beta.- But I'm not expecting the bugs to be fixed, till next year.. and the squad up / load out -pre game, never to be fixed/.

Stupid article, who cares how EA feels about the gay community. That isn't the metric to judge them by either, idiot author. They're still a horrible company when it comes to what business they are in.

Exactly. They were voted for based on how they treated the CUSTOMERS, not who they hired. I don't care if they have 100 homosexual black little persons or are a company of 100% white straight males. Their policies are still atrocious.

They're legally obligated not to turn people down for their race, sexuality, etc. Praise labor laws for that, not EA.

Ea probably offered a raise if everyone voted for perfect equality score.

It's not a vote, it's a survey given to HR directors:

Dudes, big companies have different divisions which do different things. Their HR department obviously deserves a round of applause for doing what many big companies out there aren't even thinking of doing, and that applause doesn't need to be directed at... oh... the rest of that entire company.

However! I have an issue with this author:

"Well, lo and behold it turns out that evaluating a company entirely based on whether it charges for on-disc DLC or has launch issues with its games might not be the greatest metric to use."

Um, no. Not at all. On-disc DLC is mostly Capcom's jam. What we've despised about EA in the past year is how higher-ups (whether Maxis wants to admit it or not) influenced creators to integrate the concept of account authentication into their games, thereby forcing people to be online at all times and compromising creative ideas from within those studios. It's DRM, but they sell it as a feature, as if we're stupid enough to believe it.

And *then* the launch bungle happened - after all that posturing, they couldn't even hold up their end of the anti-piracy deal and *let* people authenticate on day one (or two, or three...) without issues. The repairs, the constant server maintenance, the downgrading just to fit EA's capabilities online - was it even worth it to worry about piracy? It looks like they're learning with The Sims, but still, there's some creepy Origin stuff going on, and Simcity looks like it'll never really be fixed by them.
