    Good, I can't stand EA. They want to have a monopoly in every area possible, then they still screw over people like this. There's a reason they're constantly voted the worst company in America.

    One of the more recent dirty moves they've done, is awhile back when they acquired PopCap Games. Right after Plants vs Zombies 2 was announced, the day after, the original creator was fired. Obviously, he was chosen to be let go by EA. I really can't stand them.

    Ouch tough break for EA. I no longer play Madden every year like I used to just because it felt like there we hardly any changes being made to the games year after year.

    But on the flipside, $11 million is nothing to company like EA.

    LOL. Not even close. It won't even be a dent in their wallet.

    Yeah, sadly, they are so huge that it's just a minor annoyance to them. Still good to hear, and I hope all the other little guys get a piece of what they're owed too.

    well he deserved it in my opinion. Wish I could've been on that jury tho. Probably the best civil trial to be a part of ever lol

    Which is absolutely ridiculous if you think about it...

    Seriously, there are companies out there that actually enforce child labor, criminally low wages, pollution of the environment, etc. And then it's a bloody VIDEOGAME company that apparently tops them all. No wonder gamers are still not being taken seriously.

    Couple that with the recent death threats aimed at one of the main guys behind Black Ops II (because of a bloody PATCH, no less) and you know that some people should've never picked up a controller in the first place.
