EA Is Trying To Pay Off Famous People To Say They Like Star Wars Battlefront

It seems like EA has been paying famous people to say they like Star Wars Battlefront. This could be due to the hatred towards the game by many gamers.

So EA would rather pay famous people to say they like Star Wars Battlefront than price the game more respectably.

It's EA, A.K.A Electronic Arseholes.

sonarus3109d ago

No surprise. EA usually wins title for worst company and they seem to revel in it. Game is worth 40 bucks tops.

Bansai3109d ago

Remember EA's old motto? "It's in the game"?

Pretty ironic now lol, "It's in the DLC"

Yi-Long3109d ago

Of course rich famous folks enjoy it; even if EA didn't provide them with a free copy (which they most likely did), they still really wouldn't really care about 50 bucks for DLC, cause that's peanuts to them.

Nobody is complaining about the game not being fun. People are complaining about the value for money, and the expensive Season Pass.

EA games "Challenge Every Wallet"

I love that nobody disagreed with you.

I bought this for my kid, and i have to admit, he loves it and i do also. But overpriced as hell. My kid immediately asked me to buy the pass. I was like hold up boy,,,daddy just paid too much for this one right now lol. I was gonna wait cause i read it was a lil short on content,,,,,but it was his bday ya know. And i just want EA to know they can go fuck themselves . And i put no blame on dice,theyre a good group of folks forced by nazi's . I know thats harsh. But EA has some great talent they own but dictate them into crap. So many great games flawed by only the fat cats. And for one whole decade ruined my now ancient hype for FOOTBALL SEASON . I was one of the best in the world 2k5 on xbl. They ripped that from me. The hate burns a lot

Sadly this is common place.

MS was notorious for doing this as well.

TheCommentator3109d ago

I get it now. EA got paid by Sony(no, this is not Sony's fault), who then advertised the game for them, then EA used their original advertising budget to try to pay famous people to say they like it. If Battlefront was worth more than it's graphics engine maybe EA wouldn't have to "force" people to say good things about it.

ZombieKiller3109d ago

I am soooo glad i didn't buy this game....im a huge Star Wars fan and a huge gamer too so everything said why not? EA pushed me away from this game by 1) BEING EA and 2) That season pass. I saw the Destiny sales model from a mile away. Blank ass game with an additional pass that unlocks everything. Screw that.

I really wish they would let someone else make Star Wars games. Someone good too like CD Projekt Red or Naughty Dog, maybe even Rockstar. Not some bullshit dev like Ninja Theory (STILL hurting over here Capcom) or someone like EA.
I'd love to see an adventure game based on travel and exploration to different planets. maybe play as a jedi on a multi-planet/location quest.

Lets just say Mos Eisley spaceport could get REALLY interesting.

You would think that SOMEONE over at Disney would have seen the fans complaining about Battlefield 4 and it's mess.

@IAmLee

I heard the E in EA stands for evil. ;-)

Aeery3109d ago (Edited 3109d ago )

This guy is a douchebag a full attention whore.

I don't care if EA really tried to "bribe" him (I don't like them), I don't care at all, but this guy is very disrespectful.

Why insult so much a game that millions of people are enjoying ?
He just insult the game, not the EA and that is very different.

So, what can I say ?

Fuck off idiot.

Retroman3109d ago (Edited 3109d ago )

This is ( Nothing ) new MS done this waaaaay to often at E3 each year.
what else is new?? America was built on fabrication and lies.
celebrities no more than puppets to manipulate blind consumers (Suckers) to buy said product .
we must decide what is right and best for our time and entertainment not illuminati puppets .

So what if they are...gamers are such drame queens and fit about everything.

Just play games and stop worrying about other things that shouldn't really matter to you.

Magnes3109d ago

It's really starting to become clear to me what all the fan boy hate stuff is really about. Fear and desire to shape the industry into the mold that fits your ideas. If you don't like a game/company/hardware and it sells a lot you hit the inter webz and slam it to the inth degree. With the exception of payed exclusives that deliberately withhold things from a particular group what's the point if you don't like it don't buy it easy. Oh that's right not that easy others aren't allowed to like it because you don't, egocentrism.

kenshiro1003109d ago

If you have to pay famous people to say they like your game, then you done goofed up.

Don't support this disgusting company please.

mogwaii3109d ago

Keep supporting scumbags if you like, who needs integrity, just spend spend spend!

Gh05t3109d ago

@Kenshiro

I find it hard pressed to find any major company who hasn't paid a celebrity to say they like their company.

I would have to stop buying cars, shoes, clothing, makeup, razors, cell phones, I cant believe its not butter, pizza, and countless other products or services.

Paid endorsement is nothing new, and if you buy a product because some singer/songwriter says he liked it than you are as shallow as someone who takes money to support a product they don't really like.

kenshiro1003109d ago

Its the way EA went about it. I stand by my original comment.

Dirtnapstor3109d ago

@Gho5t

Agreed.
Anyone who thinks differently is a dolt and could be clearly defined as a sheep ironically enough considering they state the same for those who actually purchased and enjoy this game.

Battlefront is a great game. If you don't like the cost, pass on it or wait until it drops in price reasonable to your expectations. Not a hard concept to live by really.

Notellin3109d ago

One of the worst comments I've ever read. If the public doesn't like something they have to voice their concern or else the big corporations push further and further.

abstractel3109d ago

I really do feel it should have had a proper single player campaign but the game is still a lot of fun and I feel it's worth my $60.

rocketpanda3109d ago

Right, because being paid off for positive reviews and comments are so great! Let's pay off some well knowns so they can influence their fans to pick up a mediocre game. You got to wonder why EA keeps getting ranked in the worst company poll.

Wouldn't it be better to spend said money on actually making the game better, oh wait that's what the $50 season pass is for.

Name Last Name3109d ago

Hey Fin I would love to "Just play games and stop worrying..." but I can't when they're trying to squeeze every penny I have.
