EA has been awarded the worst company in America award for this year by Consumerist, and EA is not too pleased with this result as it has shrugged off the result.
EA took down Bank of America, which isn’t a big surprise as the poll was available to people who didn’t live in the US as well. So it makes sense why EA stands out to many.
Personally I feel this entire thing was dumb as hell, and a entertainment company shouldn’t be on the list, but who am I to say anything?
“After more than 250,000 votes, Consumerist 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 a statement on Consumerist’s website.
EA has responded to this rather sarcastically:
“We’re sure that British Petroleum, AIG, Philip Morris, and Halliburton are all relieved they weren’t nominated this year. We’re going to continue making award-winning games and services played by more than 300 million people worldwide.”
