Remember a time when

Postby Mane » Tue 21 Nov 2017, 10:49 am

EA were called Electronic Arts? A time before they would screw anyone over for their lunch money?

It really happened! When they were founded their purpose was to celebrate developers, they even had artists bios in the LP-like packaging. Of course Trip Hawkins was a weird mixture of idealist and Steve Jobs understudy, but he too got screwed over by the publisher he founded!

Thank Mane, that was an interesting diversion from work.

Still can't believe they went from "It is not about making money, it is about making a difference." to FUT and Battlefront2 in a very short period of time.

The lure of the mighty greenback is irresistible long term; especially when a tasty partner comes along...lol
