Now ubisoft needs to stop their online pass crap as well, only then will the my faith in gaming companies be restored
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.
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...
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.
I think this has to do with the CEO stepping down, and EA trying to get back on track the way they use to be.
Oh how funny it would have been if they added "This episode of feedbackula has been sponsored by EA" at the end of the video.
P.S: No toast?
So . . this guy is making fun of people that are sick of their privacy being violated.???
It's almost as if he came from a place that's trying to recreate the novel 1984, with draconian "offensive speech" laws, and cameras tracking their citizens every move.
Ofcourse. This is coming from a guy who's country has more cameras monitoring you in one City then whole US. He's used to giving up his rights.
I hate EA as much as anyone but to voted the worst company in America twice, when there are people out there crashing the global economy for short term profits and causing oil spills all over the place! That is a bit much.
@Imperiusmax Please realise, that everyone in the world was allowed to vote for that, most of the world has no interaction with any american bank or oil company..... EA screws over everyone. If I had a choice between a company that causes me anoyence on a near daily basis, or some bank I don't even know about, the choice is easy
Why would i spend my money on a company that doesn't give a shit about my feedback on their products? There are plenty of good companies out there that actually work with the gaming community, I will invest my money in them.
I have stopped buying games from EA a while back and this is not likely to change.
People hate online passess? Go figure, well at least EA finally figured out that it's a rip off plain and simple. Anyway, another great episode, but the Mexican theme is getting old; and they're not even near Mexico, there in lies the funny, I guess.
Am looking forward to the rants about that quip about the Declaration of Independence.
Admittedly, as an Australian, our independence seemed to be much less of a struggle.
AU: Mum - we want to govern ourselves, please.
UK: OK. You're miles away as it is and frankly, we're really busy.
AU: Cool. You'll still look out for us though, right?
UK: Yeah, we're good.
Freakin' Awesome Episode!! I love the ending. EA sucks. But I mostly just dislike their over bearing "Jerry Jones owner and MVP of Dallas Cowboys" approach to publishing games. Take 2 ftw!!!
It's a shame really, everybody was genuinely pleased that EA put the right foot forward and removed online passes but instead of turning over a new leaf they blatantly assault another publisher like Nintendo rather than establish a good public relations with their fan base. It is sad when you consider that the devs now not only have to deal with Electronic Arts' infamous crunch time but they also have to deal with the fact that their PR has now resorted to that of a tantrum.
@Vince21C What the engineer from EA said about Nintendo was spot on. They didn't make a public statement as a company. One employee tweeted and later removed the comments. But, I agree with him 100%. The Wii-U is a joke.
@VBVCSHARP @Vince21C People represent their companies. It's like the Adam Orth thing taught no one nothing... There is a reason why people refer to him as "the engineer from EA" and not his name. His name is absolutely irrelevant, and even if he thought he was speaking for himself, he really wasn't.
Johnny looks like Breaking Bad's Walter on the ad for this feature. If Johnny was to cook Meth and wear one of those suits from the show, he would be a Rubber Johnny!!!
