Proof once again that EA is fucking the devil.

Luckily Cyan is doing the next Myst ;D

But yes, this is disturbing news indeed.  Expected, but disturbing.

i'm not really suprised. most EA games i've played recently have been a big dissapointment tho. the only thing EA have going for them is the fact that they're console games have fairly good graphics, that's it. i've heard some people complaining about FIFA 2005 (which i never wish to befoul my PS2, or GC if they get around to it) saying it was just the same as 2000 with better graphics.

EA are going around in circles, all of their games are the same, just with pretty effects. All of the sports games (their allegeded forte) are the same, only the NHL games are all that's worth playing from the EA sports range (that i know of). And EA's 'real' games don't fare much better. All of the movie tie in's they've done (yes JK Rowling, i'm looking at you) are the same games, no change to graphics either!

EA's major source of income come from the annual FIFA games, the chav game. They've been fairly cunning and gone in to appeal to the greatest audience in Europe and America. Appeal to the national sports of countries. cue the stupid number of american football, football(soccer); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES ice hockey etc games around. The chav vote, the average person in a fair few countries. And it's depressing

EA have gone straight for those who don't care about gameplay, only what a game looks like. It's why, unfortunatly, games like the one Spiff's making now, albeit it looks like a great game, wouldn' t make an EA game. Graphics

Smeagol: EA don't make the games, they only publish them. All they do is make the developers rush an unpolished product to the market then plaster their logo and own advertisement all over it to make themselves shit loads of cash.

EA develops games; EALA and EA Canada(Vancouver) are both development studios. EA Seatle was one but they shut it down.

methinks that Boaz and yourself should visit EA Canada with a large bucket of kerosine, and a lighter :)

OK... Maybe I phrased it badly... A huge bulk of EA games on the market aren't developed by EA.

EA have purchased a LOT of development studios who now produce games exclusively for EA and who answer DIRECTLY to EA so thats really not exactly the case

I don't like EA, the rep that comes to visit us is scary. He's always so proud of how much EA have spent on advertising. They spend all their cash on crappy-looking display cases and paying stores to display their products all over the fucking place.

But the bigger they come the harder they fall. If EA ever crashed, they could very well bring the whole industry down with them. Remember Atari?
