That is PR 101.
Too little, too late, if you ask me.
I personally cannot understand the major business ethics of EA but they're holding some of my favorite companies hostage (Bioware, Dice and Visceral). I like this because its a charity and secondly because its giving us a lot. These are games EA has definitely already profited off of and can afford to give away anyway.
I just got Battlefield, Dead Space, Mirrors Edge, Crysis 2, Dead Space 3 for much less than I could've paid on consoles, even at Gamestop. These are definitely around $200 worth of games.
My laptop is definitely far stronger than any of my current gen consoles.
I agree. I have been on an EA boycott for awhile now, but this was too good of a deal
This is the same way I feel about MS and outside of gaming industry Sony to a lesser extent. If they keep putting out the games I cannot deny them. I love my Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Halo, Battlefield and Sony exclusives.
