  • Fan filing FTC complaints against EA after Mass Effect 3 ending

    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.

    Mass Effect 3 EndingHere 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
    (650) 628-1500

    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.

  • Analyst: Diablo III will sell 5 million copies in its first year

    Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz has predicted that Diablo III will sell 5 million copies in its first year on sale. Yesterday Blizzard announced that Diablo III will launch on May 15.

    Diablo IIIDoug Creutz in a general Activision note said, "Our street-high FY12 EPS estimate of $1.05 assumes first year unit sell-through of 5MM for Diablo III, and assumes that over 1MM of the units incorporate the World of Warcraft ‘annual pass’ deal which allows WoW players who commit to a one-year subscription to receive Diablo III for free,"

    Doug Creutz also predicted that Blizzard's new MMO will launch in 2014.

    "We expect three Blizzard titles to ship over the next twelve months (Diablo III, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, and World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria); we expect the new Bungie title to ship in 2013; and we expect Blizzard’s new MMO to ship in 2014.

    "We also expect Call of Duty to maintain its dominating FPS leadership position, and we believe that the company has a great opportunity to build on its initial success of its Skylanders franchise. Finally, World of Warcraft Western subs continue to appear to be stable vs. year-end levels. We think ATVI shares can outperform the market by 20% over the next 12 months."

  • Crytek: Homefront 2 "can make a big splash at the time it comes out"

    In a recent interview to GamesIndustry, Crytek Co-founder Avni Yerli said that Homefront 2 can make big splash at launch even though the first game in franchise got critical reception.

    Homefront 2"It has a huge mind share, everybody knows the IP," explained Yerli. "The first game has indeed a low Metacritic, but due to really great positioning and great marketing it has reached a good mind share. And I think with Crytek quality attached to it and similar marketing attached to it, it can make a big splash at the time it comes out."

    Crytek's GM Nick Button-Brown teases some really cool setting for Homefront 2. ""When you look at the world they created in the first game and the world that they were talking about for the second game, the setting they were talking about... obviously we can't talk about it yet, but it's really cool."

    "The team choose and they really, really like it and thought it was a great opportunity and we'll support them on that."

    What you guys think, with Crytek technology how Homefront 2 will look and how it will fair?, Let us know your views in the comment section below.
