Between this deliberate lie and his recent "very few people actually play the single-player on these kinds of games" comment, Peter Moore has demonstrated to gamers that he's a f*cking idiot. Maybe he's what's been so seriously wrong with EA lately. Give the job to someone who's a gamer and not a corporate douchebag.
I have no interest in any of these "features" and not one of them even comes close to justifying why online should not be optional. EA, Ghost Games and Marcus Nilsson can all go f*ck themselves. It's DRM, plain and simple and I won't be buying this time around.
