Fan filing FTC complaints against EA after Mass Effect 3 ending
- By Alex Smith
Mass Effect 3 fans are taking their fight against Bioware and EA on the issue of game's ending to EXTREME level. Gamers are now filing FTC complaints against EA and Bioware for "FALSE ADVERTISING" after the ending of Mass Effect 3.
Here is what Bioware Forum user "El_Spiko" wrote:
"Against EA. After reading through the list of promises about the ending of the game they made in their advertising campaign and PR interviews, it was clear that the product we got did not live up to any of those claims. This thread has a great compilation of their claims:
Clearly, none fo these were represented in the ending. If anyone else wishes to file a complaint (the more there are the more likely the FTC will take action) just go to FTC.gov and fill out a complaint form in the Consumer Protection section. Here's EA HQ's address and phone number:
209 Redwood Shores Parkway
Redwood City, CA 94065
This is not somethign I was happy to do, but after the terrible ending that was in no way the product that had been advertised to me and the lack of any kind of response from Bioware/EA to address this, I felt it was one of my only recourses. I'll be returning my copy of the game before the end of my 30 day return policy if the ending still hasn't been addressed by then."
Filed a Better Business Bureau complaint as well. They can be found at BBB.org. The BBB will at the very least notify EA of any complaints they recieve, so every complaint filed is something that EA will hear about."
Neither EA nor Bioware has commented on this. I would like to ask Gamepur readers, whether this EXTREME STEP of Mass Effect 3 fans will get EA and Bioware attention?, Let us know your views in the comment section below.
