Default Anyone else get an email about Ea Sports Lawsuit?

What is this about? Anyone submitting a claim to become apart of it?


11. Am I part of this Settlement Class?

Yeah, I got one. I didn't know if it was a scam. Get in on it and you could get $20.00!

What's the lawsuit all about? I've bought every madden since 2005. At least 2 NCAA games as well. How do you prove you bought the games?

Hold your right hand up and say "I swear I bought these games", that should cover it and is legally binding as long as you do not cross your fingers on the other hand.

Think this is it. Its a monopoly lawsuit that was settled out of court.

I saw EA Sports on a list for most unethical corporations in the US, and I though ti kinda weird that a video game company would make the list.

Electronic Arts is one of the most hated companies in the world. They buyout their competition, and underwhelm constantly. The CEO resigned after the latest fiasco involving Sim City.
EA drives their employees into the ground, forcing them to work nonstop to get stuff pushed out.
I don't know off the top of my head what companies EA has bought, but its a lot, and to me, their motto seems to be avoid competition by buying them out, and then not worrying if they drive that previous companies games into the river.

Bioware is one. Sadly. Bioware makes pretty good games.

FYI it is NOT a scam and the court just extended the time period through May to sign up. I strongly recommend everyone do so. EA is a horrible company that does business the wrong way. Hopefully this pushes things in the right direction.
