Kinda like how EA execs like to extort players for money to have a good time with their games.

@Raize Trevino To be honest mate I couldn't care less about what you do or don't regard as cringe. But you do raise a really good point about corporations killing people with consumption. And your right in that sense they are just as immoral. I suppose the difference regarding those companies is the social conditioning they subject people to, i.e adverts ect. Banksy has a famous quote about them taking the piss out of us and how they shape the world yet were not allowed to touch them. It's worth a google. I'm a minimalist, I would far rather a world where I'm not bombarded by adverts and sale psychology. But that's not realistic. So I pay attention to what they are doing so that I don't fall for their antics. The same way I come from the golden age of gaming when producers only used to care about making good games.

@Poeticmic ea sucks so does every company i mean your so adamant about this what about the alchohol industry or fast food? That stuff literally kills people are you as passionate about that? At the end of the day its just video games and your holier than thou mentality is cringe to me.
Poeticmic
Poeticmic 13 päivää sitten
@Raize Trevino I'm not knocking people for buying them, each to their own. Value is relative to each individual. But when there's underhanded sale psychology being utilised to manipulate peoples decisions were talking about some thing completely different. And that's exactly what is happening. Why would it seem cringe? It's far more cringe that your being so ignorant towards it. Which either means that your uninformed or you straight up fan boying for one of the single worst companies in existence I hope these hackers run EA in to the dirt where they belong. And further more I hope they release all of EA's code so that modders and hackers can shit all over all of their games. It's what EA deserve...

@Poeticmic like look at this comment. Doesnt it seem kinda cringe to you? Uninformed fanbase? Intelligent conversation? Its just people enjoying a video game and choosing to buy stuff for the games they enjoy.

@Poeticmic ea isnt forcing anyone to make these purchases and even if they make billions i dont see how that affects me. I mean you havent made a convincing arguement and stroked off your own ego and called me dumb. Sorry that just proves my point.

EA will never disclose whether or not the data that was hacked or leaked was pertinent. Why spend money on online security when you can give your executives hundreds of millions of dollars.

Personally, I feel like the only thing different between EA and the hackers isn’t the fact that they’re manipulating people for profit, but the fact that the hackers can only do it the dark web while EA is allowed to do it in broad daylight.

While it's funny to make fun of EA for this situation the comment section needs to understand that EA selling lootboxes is legal. The fault lies with the consumers here. Don't buy the games that have lootboxes in them which will lead the whales to not pay for microtransactions which will lead to losses which is the only thing EA understands. It really annoys me when people say that EA and other companies are the only ones at fault here. Do not missunderstand me I hate microtransaction especially in paid games and I didn't buy any game that had them. Even if they were "cosmetics" only. For example I refused to get Overwatch for that reason and got a lot of shit for that. So there you go. This is the logical way things go. This is the industrie the consumer created. Don't complain to me about microtransactions if you bought the game.

It's quite presumptious to imply that EA actually cares that their customers data is being stolen. They just released a surprise mechanic. For the one time fee of 19.99 EA will secure your information from the hackers.
