It wouldn't have surprised me if it was true. Some serious damage control is needed right about now.

It may not be EA directly, it could be the PR/Marketing firm they work with. But then again EA is big enough to have those department.

I don't buy this. Real Chinese spammers do not write English that well :)

but they may have pre-made list of 'good comments',
all they need to do is pick some from that list, and copy-pasting will do the rest.

Probably not,
after all, it was very likely that he was outsourced by PR company (which he thinks was 'EA representative').

The praise spams were writen quite well,
while in that 'interview' he answer with simpler structured statement.

I wouldn't be surprised at all, EA's a shell of what it once was....
I'm not going to add my original post to this, as part of it may not be fact and I'll only have to end up apologising for my mistake....

What it once was? EA has been ****ting up the industry since the 90s. They really haven't changed as a company.

Please take this back to the thread's topic. This is not a discussion about political views, Windows 8 or other Neowin members.

My eyes were getting wider and wider as the amount of red posts got larger and larger. :laugh:

On topic, it's a bit of a shame that this isn't real. It would be good for something like this to point out that EA admit they've messed up, even when they continue to say that they didn't.

I would think it was Maxis' decision, not EAs. Maxis makes craploads of money and is allowed to operate however they feel is appropriate.

I'm not sure that I agree. EA is larger and also are known for their "always on" DRM habits. Granted, it could be that the "always on" DRM worked nicely in to Maxis's plan for a Sim City MMO, but I'm not so sure.

This is kinday fishy.

That's $0.16 not $16. So $0.16 * 780 = $124.80
