EA’s on a roll this week! First there was the thing where it banned a user from its forums for (rather politely, actually, at least in forum terms) pointing out that, in his opinion, Dragon Age 2 was shit; the ban extended to his EA account and suddenly the dude was locked out of all EA games he owned. After public vilification the company backtracked, claiming a “mistake.”
Then they refused a refund to a guy who bought a copy of Battlefield 1943 for his 9-year-old son. While admittedly that action could be called “Portrait of a Retarded Father,” it’s really not EA’s place to judge his absent parenting skills. (it’s my place).
Then EA PR wog Tiffany Steckler went crying to CNN because NPD’s numbers don’t show what EA wants them to show since digital distribution isn’t included. Never mind that everyone knows digital distribution isn’t included because it’s impossible to get reliable numbers, and no one hates that fact more than NPD.
Next: EA announced plans to boil a kitten on its YouTube channel. I may have made that one up. But they might! Given what we’ve seen so far!
