They're apparently getting rid of all Online passes in previous games and games in the future. Kewl

When will that happen? I've been schwindled by gamestop out of my online pass and dlc. I wanna play Battlefield 3 online already.
#62 to #60 - elynichujy (06/10/2013) [-]
They announced it not last sunday but the sunday before. I only want it so I can play ME3 online again, they stole my pass and From Ashes DLC and are expecting me to pay for it again.

The free market will fix it. No, seriously, these companies are becoming unpopular and will cause them to go bankrupt
User avatar #32 to #13 - Shiny (06/10/2013) [-]
So basically, the difference between the public and private sector is that the private sector makes everything shiny?
User avatar #34 to #32 - danielscqro (06/10/2013) [-]
are you that retarded? How would you like if someone took your xbox 360 away and gave you an Atari while they tell you that "the only difference is that the xbox 360 is shiny"
User avatar #37 to #34 - Shiny (06/10/2013) [-]
Well, it is, in a sense. Most public innovation is marketing, and that's just a fact.

Ignoring the fact public and private are a false dichotomy in actual practice, and EA has been seeing record profits for years.

Whoever created this post has incredibly limited knowledge of what goes on outside of their favorite bias news shtick.

1. NASA's had limited funding to produce much of anything, but they're still innovating even with the scraps that they get. Example: The amazing innovation that the Mars rover turned out.
2. High schools have more access to internet and technology since before 30 years, where they had jack **** :I
Seriously, some high schools are even making the move to allowing every student to have their own laptop or tablet computer to perform their school work on a moderate speed internet network.

3. School buses are efficient, changing anything else would be redundant and a waste of budgeting that is better used in innovating technology for education with #2

Your post implies that only the government is oppressive and that businesses would never, ever harm people.
Meanwhile;
Apple's producer, FOXCONN, has workers that are driven to suicide, to the point they had to incorporate a ******* net to try and stop them from landing to their deaths.
Privacy on the Internet from not just government entities but also corporate is being violated every step of the way from big heads like Google and Facebook. Leave them to do whatever they please with this information unregulated, and you're just as bad if not worse than those people who believe the government should play Big Brother.

Shall I go on?

While your other points are good. I don't see how number 2 is really an innovation. Giving kids computers, but still giving them the same ******** standardized tests that teach them absolutely nothing isn't really innovating a damn thing.
User avatar #74 to #70 - akkere (06/10/2013) [-]
The post seemed focused on the technological improvements so I brought up the rise in technological improvements for the school bit.

I agree though that standardized testing is absolute ******** . For some god forsaken reason, the Boards of Education seem to think it's a good thing when even respectable teachers think they're an awful idea; summing all of the content in a final-boss-like test doesn't revise retention, it gives students an excuse to become victims of their own procrastination and end up cramming in information that they're just going to forget the following week after.
Most of the innovation I was pointing too was that students would have more access to information and be able to process it better with that access to study for those same tests. Even if the standardized testing can't be undone, methods to teaching the students how to beat those tests become ever prevalent.

My school is getting iPads for all students next year. I personally think it's a stupid idea. Why do they have enough money to get hundreds of iPads for a bunch of stupid kids who are probably gonna end up breaking them anyway but not any money to get rid of the cockroaches?
User avatar #78 to #75 - akkere (06/10/2013) [-]
I've also found it strange that some high schools have opted to make their technology exclusively Apple-based, especially in a world where Windows computers are more apparent. I've never heard of a situation though where they'd have this immense amount of funds to perform such an overpriced operation and never be able to spare a dime for pest control though. That's very strange.
User avatar #82 to #78 - pwnsomelink (06/10/2013) [-]
Oh yeah. All of the computers are still the huge dinosaur Windows desktops, but iPads.

I can't believe the company that made Warz Wasn't voted the worst company. Not only was the game bad compared to Dayz, but at the first day they have lied to you about the size of the maps, that you can pay real money if you want to buy something that can disappear forever if you die and they have banned thousands of people because they are giving bad reviews.

I'm pretty sure Battlefield and anything Sims related is the only thing that EA really has going for them. I don't even think people buy their sports games anymore.

Actually, No. Europians and americans aren't the only people in the world that buy video games. Fifa is the most popular video game in the middle east, don't know about the rest of the world but almost everyone here has at least fifa 2009-2013. Hell, even the low class, dirt poor kids have fifa 1997.

Publishers are the people that make games possible.
If EA only produced games, the people to make Battlefield and Sims wouldn't have the funds to release the game.

which would have been a good thing since then we wouldn't have **** games

that stupid title is voted upon by people like you faggots here.

EA was voted the worst simply because you people don't like them. that does not make them the worst company, it simply means that you people were angry at them.

User avatar #85 to #76 - sanguinesolitude (06/10/2013) [-]
sure there are worse companies like banks and those that use some chinese manufacturers, etc, but this wasn't a vote for the worst ethically. Ea was voted worst company in america in a poll for consumerist magazine by consumers. As a consumer, the oil companies provide gasoline for my car. It is expensive sure, but they don't sell me 3/4 of a gallon claiming it is 1 gallon, and then make me pay for the other 1/4 in 6 separate installments. As a consumer the ethics of the companies rarely affect me, or if they do it is indirect. Banks can destroy the country, while still taking care of the customer in a satisfying way.

I think you are reading too much into a magazine poll and the intent of the voters.

IT'S EA BECAUSE THEIR GAMES AREN'T THAT GREAT! ******* gamer nerds... you're all a bunch of ******* idiots. Do you honestly think mediocre games is worse than all these other companies? I hate you all.

I'll tell you what: if you don't like the results, vote for a different company.
I've been unhappy with majority votes before, but I can't overrule the majority.
Sorry we haven't left the contest in your hands, anon. After all, you seem smart and capable of handling a competition without bias.
#30 to #25 - anon (06/10/2013) [-]
You shouldn't have to leave the contest in my hands, you all should be smart enough to know that there are a lot worse companies out there than this video game company. You're a bunch of whiny fan boys.

I didn't vote for EA, I had no real desire to vote for any company.
You can't tell people how to think, if somebody dislikes EA strongly, that's their opinion.
Just because you disagree doesn't make them stupid, whiny, or fanboys.

Voting for them was the better idea, as winning the golden turn would actually affect them, maybe force them to change their business strategies.

And it did, if only slightly. They've made a couple of changes for the betterment of the customers.

Whereas if one of the massive, truly evil corporations like BOA or Ticketmaster was voted the worst? They'd just shrug and go "Business as usual."

Another point is that people expect banks to be evil ***** . People go to games for enjoyment, so when they go looking for fun and get ****** over then they'll be angrier than if they were expecting to be ****** over.
