Game publisher Electronic Arts, which won The Consumerist’s reader-voted ‘Worst Company in America’ contest, today, did not take its victory sitting down.
In a statement to Kotaku, EA Senior Director of Corporate Communications John Reseburg said:
We’re sure that British Petroleum, AIG, Philip Morris, and Halliburton are all relieved they weren’t nominated this year. We’re going to continue making award-winning games and services played by more than 300 million people worldwide.
Reseburg also said the Human Rights Campaign is currently circulating a position to support the publisher’s “decision to have developers include same-sex relationships in recent games including Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect 3.” He also brought up the fact that EA-owned BioWare made it to the finals of the ‘Best Developer’ contest run by gaming site The Escapist.
Seriously, how did EA beat Bank of America?
