Wow, Electronic Arts Sucks!

Good grief.

Current EA marketing ploy for upcoming game, "Dante's Inferno":

"Sin to Win" contest at ComicCon encouraging gamer geeks to "commit acts of lust with a booth babe" -- oh, the subtitle says they just mean take a photograph with booth babe. Riiight. The winner gets "a sinful night with two hot girls".

Previous marketing ploy for same game at E3:

staged a fake fundie Christian protest against their own game.

And this on top of their unprofessional treatment of someone I know. I cannot post details, but it was a stunning example of bureaucratic screw-up that dragged on for months.

This makes me want to see -Sin- commit an act of some sort on a few EA representatives. Some squashage might occur.
