Feedbackula - EA Online Pass Paranoia!
- May 17, 2013
EA has abandoned its online pass scheme -- a bit of news we thought you'd be delighted by. Turns out not everyone is rushing to thank EA. Johnny investigates.
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny.........you must be pretty embarrassed right now, since every naysayer was right about EA with the reveal of the Online Pass 2.0 (times one million) that is Xbox One.
Don't get me wrong - I enjoy Feedbackula. Everyone likes to see the Illiterati taken down a peg or two and I think Johnny's a witty and engaging host, but I'm puzzled by the show's redesign. What's the relevance of a Wild West theme when the name of the show is a play on the title of Bram Stoker's most famous creation (something that was reflected in the previous 'horror' Feedbackula theme)? Then there's the Mariachi music and the Día de Muertos skulls. Perhaps the title of the show could be changed. 'The Good, The Bad and Feedbackula'? 'Once Upon a Time in the Web'? 'True Shit'? I dunno.
da hell is up with this guy? EA deserves all the hate it's getting. and hell no we shouldn't be foolish enough to think they don't have another trick or 200 up their greedy sleeves.
I love the new voices. Please pick random unrelated people around the office and off the street to read the lines more in future ';,,;'
You know whats great about being a PC gamer. Is that steam takes care of us. Valve is the future... soon we will Crush EA.... its just a matter of time.
The core idea of feedbackula is for people like you to write comments, thus increasing content for Gamespots web-site... and in turn increasing or consistently maintaining Search Engine Rankings for Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Now ubisoft needs to stop their online pass crap as well, only then will the my faith in gaming companies be restored
Fuck you. EA deserved to be hated just like any company out there with malpractices and disregard for the excellency of their products. Let them be hated for eternity. Gather a lynch mob and kill them all and let them rot like a piece of shit and I hope all their children are born with horrible, disgusting and smelly face, brains, motor organs and genital diseases.
Paranoia? This show looks like it was made by request of EAs, to try to calm their COSTUMERS (angry and unhappy).
There is so much subject to be talked... Really? F. this company. Let us complain, and let them improve their behaviour, its their job and it is OUR money that supports it.
Was with ya till the sarcastic comment over EA being whores to maximize profits. There is a line where things go too far. It's not ok or acceptable just because everyone does it. Nor because there is a flaw in capitalism that people overlook because they like to picture themselves as the one benefiting from it.
Also contradictory to the over all idea that the big budgets of AAA games are hurting the industry.
haha great show. Still don't understand the west-mex theme that has been on the last couple though :\
EA took my first born son when they passed over Egypt I didn't feel like buying digital goats blood to paint on my door for $9.99... Did you know digital products are considered leased to you rather then you owning them?
Dodged that bullet.
Well they do try to change policy by taking the money they get for online passes and shelling it out to groups with certain agendas.... so... Yea they are in fact trying to change our everyday life that has nothing to do with video games...
@bigbadmamajama1 Just about every, single company does such a thing. And they have been doing so for a very long time. Influencing governmental, political and social institutions is something businesses with large profit margins do.
Whether that's a good or a bad thing is a different story.
@cdog5386 @bigbadmamajama1 However there are important factors like consumer loyalty and reputation to think of and there are plenty of successful company's that don't have to drag their consumers through the dirt.
This bad reputation and publicity has really hurt their bottom line, their bushiness practices are behind the times in a modern world where they can't get away with it like you could in the 90s or before.
This is why the CEO resigned hopefully they see that sometimes it's worth losing a few thousand here or there to keep consumers happy and coming back to buy more.
Look at the Witcher they gave away copy's used no DRM and upgraded everyone's for free all places they could have squeezed more profit and no one would have bat a eye but because they did all those things their games have been consistently outselling their predictions now that's good business.
Well considering the next gen consoles don't play used games. The online passes would become kinda useless. Nice try EA.
That was pretty good but a lot of hash comments in that video about EA. I feel you should have gave them a little more credit for that.
Hey, Johnny so is your shirt suppose to describe what a real man suppose to look like?...and you still didn't tell me when you and jane hooked up
Hey, Johnny! Next week's Feedbackula must be about the EA engineer's comments about the Wii U, and you MUST promise to read all 16500+ before compiling the episode.
The only reason they are doing it is because used games will not even be able to be played online on next gen. Yes this includes the PS4, if you do your homework you'll find out Sony is leaving it up to the publisher. And eventually they will cutoff servers for old current gen games.
