They’ll most likely appoint Peter Moore.
The guy behind the microtransactions.

We’re all doomed. That guy should have stayed CEO.

Get the ration games, people. It’s going to be a rough ride.

As if the departure of one man could slay the monster that is EA…

Finally, I mean wow…“I will first ruin every successful franchise this company has and then leave.”
There might be hope now in EA, maybe they will realise how much people hate them, or completely ignore everything and make a new COD game called “Dead Space 4 Doritos XP Reward Offline experience is overrated One-day-DLC dealwithit”
Now, If I could have Capcom’ CEO getting the fuck out, I would be even more happy

Won’t really change anything. Especially with SimCity, for which problems came from a variety of sources, rather than just the higher ups, although they could, I suppose, receive the blame for choosing to release a broken game.

It seems that EA is viewed less by faces – think Activision and Bobby Kotick – and more as a faceless, corporate scumblob. Whenever they fuck something up (an annual occurrence now, it would seem), the blame shifts on the entity, rather than a single man We all think Bobby Kotick is an asshole, but that’s because he puts himself out there; EA’s asshole in chief does not. The president seems like more of a fall guy than anything, an expendable man who will take the heat of a crisis. Nothing will change just because they have a new president – not their policies, not their reputation, not a thing.

That’s just how I feel.
