Most Hated Company 2013 List: EA Takes 3rd Place, "SimCity Disastrous Launch Major Reason"
Most Hated Company List 2013 in US has just gone live, and Electronic Arts has faired a lot from their previous performance, coming in at Number 3. In 2011 and 2012, Electronic Arts was voted as the Most Hated/Worst Company in U.S.
This time around McDonald is on top position followed by Abercrombie & Fitch and Electronic Arts. SimCity disastrous launch was touted as one of the major reason for EA featuring again in Worst Company 2013 List.
You can read other reasons below:
Reason 2: "One of the free games offered for SimCity Disastrous launch was Mass Effect 3, another release that tarnished the company’s brand. Critics and gamers widely criticized the ending of the third installment of this very successful game as unsatisfying. The backlash was so severe that the company eventually released a free alternate ending. And there may be more troubles ahead. EA is having problems with yet another bug-filled launch, the fourth installment of the Battlefield franchise."
Reason 3: "On top of this, investors are suing the company for allegedly making misleading statements about the game’s launch and overstating its success. It’s perhaps not surprising then that, once again, The Consumerist labeled EA the “Worst Company in America” last year — the first company ever to earn the dubious distinction two years in a row."
With so much valid reasons i wonder Electronic Arts should have top the Worst Company 2013 list once again. What you guys have to say about this, let us know your views in the comment section below.
