    Sounds like he was haxzored rather than EA just deleting his games for funsies. They say they got a deletion request, perhaps after certain things were transferred. EA should definitely have records and ways to recover an account though, that's B.S. I lost my Steam account for a hot minute and got it restored with credit card numbers.

    Like the paid mods fiasco, this is 20 years too late and burns goodwill for no reason. Digital releases with limited collector edition physical copies make this a non issue.

    I suppose it could be a major problem down the road for preservation's sake when digital inevitably dies or changes too much so you need physical copies, but PC never really had a re-sales problem. How much do you even get for console game re-sales that everyone always makes a big deal out of it, anyway? It also generally seems to be in-store credit.

    There's still enough stuff getting released to not warrant giving these sh*tstains a single penny.
    $10k on micro transactions for FIFA? You'd have to be insane and/or addicted.

    They were decent once - lots of picks on that list up to 2005 or so, from all kinds of genres.
    I'm pretty sure the last game I bought would've been Battlefield 2.
    The quality takes a complete nose dive not long after. Mostly annual sport (re)releases and licensed games.
    Dungeon Keeper mobile was a farce as is most of the garbage they churn out.

    Instant avoid now along with Zenimax, Paradox, etc.
    Few of the old dev/publishers left and of the ones still going there's really only Nintendo, 1C and a few others that knock out remotely interesting.

    Is that the same Söderlund who shut down Visceral and Project Ragtag and then a month later shelled out $500m to acquire Respawn?

    EA can't catch a break from bad shit. Some retard lost a game at madden tournament and decided that the best thing to do is go and shoot people at the tournament.

    Here is a metokur reporting,at least it is a tad bit funnier than journos retardation.

    That's true, if your customer base consists of creatures capable of critical thinking.
    But this is video games.

    The analyst consensus is still overwhelmingly in favor of EA (22 Buy, 0 Sell ratings).

    Unheard if you don't care about games and/or finances. Those guys are the biggest game company in the world.

    It is more surprising to me that pokemon go is still a thing.

    This is the way the video game industry crashes
    Not with a bang but a whimper

    I'm pretty sure most people at least heard the name by now.
