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

Goldby332d ago (Edited 332d ago )

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

indyman7777332d 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.

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

Malphite333d ago

Hopefully in better designed games.

indyman7777332d ago

Hopefully in no micro transactions.

shaenoide332d ago

No it's Pandora's lootbox ^^

nommers332d ago (Edited 332d 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.

Ashlen333d 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.

BLow333d 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".

DJStotty332d 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

shaggy2303332d ago

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

DJStotty332d ago (Edited 332d ago )

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

They will miss every penny

Godmars290332d ago

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

Fist4achin332d ago

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

Relientk77333d ago

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

Apocalypse Shadow333d ago (Edited 333d 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
