EA lays off further staff, but promises "extremely bright fu

"Extremely bright future" except for all those people who are presumably wondering how to provide for their families I'm sure.

And the funny thing is that EA still wonders why it wins worst company in America when it comes out with statements like this.

Sounds like the wrong people got "Downsized" if you ask me.

How are they failing? They've just had a massive increase in year on year profits and produce some of the highest grossing games on the market.

If that's failing can I fail please?

Well something must be going wrong because otherwise the downsizing is just needlessly cruel....oh wait, EA the Great Satan, makes sense now.

Is it wrong for me to want bad things to happen to EA executives, especially Peter Moore?

I love it when I read silly posts from people "refusing to buy games from*insert evil conglomerate here*....."

Honestly, as long as a game is of interest to me, I couldn't care less if it was made personally by Kim Jong-un!
I don't care if a game is "the same every year." So is pizza. Stop buying the bad pizza. Buy the good pizza.

It would be slightly less funny if said profits from the game go into funding his nuclear weapons program and we all end up dead.

What is funny is when they say they're going to boycott a company but then continue to buy said product, but when people actually go through with it, you've got to admire them, at least they have the courage of their convictions.

I'd love EA to go down because the only product of theirs that I really have any true interest in is Mass Effect...and Dragon Age I suppose but given that Bioware would end up picked up by someone else anyway I'm not that worried.

You liked 'Glorious Korea Make Win World Rule' too?

I'm never going to buy an aston martin. Not because I can't afford one but I heard once someone in a factory making them was sad because his puppy had died and his boss didn't give him the day off work for it.

Sorry, it wasn't meant to be a scathing criticism, or even all that serious an observation, anyway a game by Kim Jong-un would probably suck. Now his dad, I'm betting he could have turned up a half decent shooter or something. :lol:
