Over a quarter of one million people were surveyed to find out which company was the worst in America for 2012, and none other than EA went home with the
honor dishonor. Swiftly, the firm responded.
“We’re sure that bank presidents, oil, tobacco and weapons companies are all relieved they weren’t on the list this year. We’re going to continue making award-winning games and services played by more than 300 million people worldwide,” said John Reseburg in EA Corporate Communications.
The Consumerist conducted the survey, pointing out that even though EA had to go up against the likes of Bank Of America, the firm still managed to win 64 percent of the vote. “Readers ultimately decided that the type of greed exhibited by EA, which is supposed to be making the world a more fun place, is worse than Bank of America’s avarice, which some would argue is the entire point of operating a bank,” said the consumerist.
“To those who might sneer at something as ‘non-essential’ as a video game company winning the Worst Company In America vote: It’s that exact kind of attitude that allows people to ignore the complaints as companies like EA to nickel and dime consumers to death.”
Do yo consider EA to be the worst amongst them?
