Peter Moore Explains Why EA Isn't Really The Worst Company In America
Posted on Friday, April 5 @ 16:10:18 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
EA is once again in the running for the Consumerist's "Worst Company in America" award, after winning it last year thanks in part to the Mass Effect 3 ending... situation. So far, the publisher of Battlefield and Madden has defeated AT&T in early voting, but EA COO Peter Moore took to EA's site today to defend the company.
"I'll be the first to admit that we've made plenty of mistakes," Moore writes on EA's website. "These include server shut downs too early, games that didn't meet expectations, missteps on new pricing models and most recently, severely fumbling the launch of SimCity."
While Moore admits some complaints are valid, he says "others just don't hold water." Here are his rebuttals:
We can poke holes through the SimCity thing all day long (maybe Always-Online didn't start in SimCity as DRM, but when the development team brought the Always-Online idea to upper-management, I'm sure they all saw the business-side benefit), but it's pretty clear people are voting EA the worst company in America for the wrong reasons here.
As an aside, someone looks a lot better as a potential candidate for former CEO John Riccitiello's old job, no?
