EA used to be a cool company. They published my first game, Imperium and we worked with them on a bunch of games at IG. Everyone I met there was whip-smart and passionate about making great games. Now they are just another big dumb corporation that puts out press releases with frankenquotes like this:
“This is an important inflection point in our business because it allows us to accelerate our commitment to enhance premium online services to the entire robust EA SPORTS online community.” – Peter Moore, President of EA SPORTS
(Belated hat tip: Signal vs. Noise)
Corporations of the world, fire your PR companies! You have nothing to lose but your crappy press releases.
