You may remember a story from a couple days ago that detailed about how EA were caught trying to manipulate Battlefield 3 review scores. Well it seems that this was actually a load of rubbish as the websites in question deny that EA tried any such shenanigans.
On the 18th we reported that EA had tried to manipulate review scores by denying review copies of the game to those that shoe signs that they don’t love the franchise after an intense questionnaire. It would however seem that this is simply not true.
BlueNews has reported that GameReactor wrote to the stating: â€œWe would like to have our name removed from the article, we have received a preview code and have not had any problems with EA. We have had nothing to do with the ‘shenanigans’. It seems to be a matter between EA Norway and a major newspaper, why dedicated gaming media are mentioned also must be a misunderstanding.â€
Then shortly after Gamer.no stated: â€œThis is not true. EA have never refused to give Gamer.no access to a early review copy, and we did not need to answer any leading questions from EA to obtain it either. In fact our copy is shipped already, and should be in our hands tomorrow. There have never been any disagreements between EA and Gamer.no on this case.â€
A curious turn of events for sure. Why would was this story originally brought up?
