EA wins "Worst Company in America" Again

Quote:
EA Named ‘Worst Company in America’ Again
Second “victory” in a row.
by Andrew Goldfarb APRIL 9, 2013

EA has been named the “Worst Company in America” by Consumerist for the second year in a row. The publisher beat Bank of America with 78% of the vote to claim the title, which Consumerist refers to as the Golden Poo.

“Following last year’s surprise Worst Company In America victory by Electronic Arts, there was hope that the video game giant would get the message,” Consumerist posted. “Stop treating your customers like human piggy banks, and don’t put out so many incomplete and/or broken games with the intent of getting your customers to pay extra for what they should have received in the first place. And yet, here we are again, with EA becoming the first company to ever win a second Golden Poo from Consumerist readers.”


Last week, EA COO Peter Moore commented on the poll, asking “Are we really the ‘Worst Company in America?’ I’ll be the first to admit that we’ve made plenty of mistakes. These include server shut downs too early, games that didn’t meet expectations, missteps on new pricing models and most recently, severely fumbling the launch of SimCity. We owe gamers better performance than this.” Despite that, he noted that other complaints about the company “just don’t hold water.”

Peter Moore is an idiot. The fact that he just ignores what people say and denies it is disgusting. That alone can make a company bad.

I am happy i took the time to read this. Very interesting guys. I have said all along, the only way to make this problem better, is to refuse to buy the product. The sad thing is that the EA sports games are an example of the games that are still done well. Kinda sheds light on just how bad the problem is imo.
