Eric Hirshberg has addressed EA's boss "rot from the core" comment.
"Rot from the core" Sounds like the COD franchise right there.
Who else here agrees with John Riccitiello and wants COD/Act to rot from the core? Agree/yes Disagree/no I'll cast my vote. Yes!
So you want a big publisher to rot that make a lot of games for us to play and also provides competition to companies like Ubisoft and EA so we get the best possible games? That sounds smart doesn't it /s
Yes. And here you dropped this 's'.
We get this very classy response from Activision while EA has been nasty this entire time, yet just look at the agrees and comments above. By all means support EA and their policies that: a) introduced online pass to the industry b) deletes your digital games purchased and your entire account if you are inactive on Origin c) prevents you from accesing your games on Origin if you get banned from any of EA's site d) has utter nasty DRM, remember Spore and number of times you could install a game. Heck, this was true of what is now Origin a short while back .. and to those who hate Activision e) EA essentially introduced annual game releases f) and also cut out competing sports game brands with their exclusive deals Out from the lions den right into the dragons lair! Enjoy EA people, because as far as I can tell, Activision so far is the lesser of two evils, but I'm sure we will have great days ahead of us with our saviour EA at the helm.
I don't and never cared for EA and their practices (shutting down online game servers for awesome games mere months after release), some of their developers are awesome. DICE and Criterion for example. Just sucks that they had to be under EA.
Hey it's Harry Flynn.... Oh wait it's not
Nah, just a statue of his mom.
Well said, although it seems like a typical statement to gain the trust of the crowd. I bet inside him Eric was mad :P
Of course, they're pretending to take the high ground.
Glad i'm not the only one who thought that :P
What's there to say about thier game??That all we do is milk it and all our loyal sheep buy it every year??Lmfao.
Haha, so funnyyyyyyy. lmfaolmfaolmfao
hahaha, owned, but he totaly just taking advantage, once again, smart.
Now children, play nice.
That is an old comment..
It is old, and in his speech he said that he's been asked many times to respond to it and he didn't until now.
EA are a$$es
They really are.... so far EA has been nasty this entire generation and I'm not just talking about in what they say, but what they do as a business practice.
While i'd like to agree with him,but it is coming from the mouth of the very Same company that has been milking the same series over and over,getting unimaginable sales and limiting those of other games (that release in the same period of time,mostly) when they are better deserving of that money because of how more they pack, how much effort was put into them,and for them not being rehashes of the same game that came before. So in the end,i support EA's childish comment rather than Activision's
And EA doesn't do the same exact shit? Madden every fucking year? They bought the exclusive rights to NFL games, killing the superior NFL 2K series, screw them. I stopped buying sports games many years ago after a comment a buddy made to me. Why am I buying the same EXACT game, year after year? I can deal with NFL 2K5 being 20 bucks, so I bought it, but charging full price for roster changes, they can kiss my ass. EA= the pot calling the kettle black.
That the thing. It is cool to hate on Activision. EA produce sports games every year with little improvement and Ubisoft are starting the trend of repeat Assassins Creed every year (brotherhood had a big multiplayer but the single player was AC2.5). It is the done thing know and it isn't Activision fault it is the gamers fault for buying the games every year making them profitable.
While I am not a fan of Acti or COD I think EA should only worry about EA instead of always trashing the competition. It makes them sound like a jealous school girl or something, at least to me.
True, I am starting to like activision more than EA because activision is not doing any online pass and they dont trash talk.
All companies are evil, just face it. Both suck. But EA at least puts some decent work into all their games. And he's just saying he encourages more games to succeed to be protected when CoD gets destroyed and lets BF3 crap all over it. heh. ;D
EA must be really scared... All this time they have been throwing shots at Activision while they have been just quietly listening. All this talk for a game that will be outsold 2 to 1. Get real...
