EA Defends ESA, Slams Activision/Vivendi


Posted May 19, 2008 - By bleahy

Electronic Arts Canada exec Jeff Brown has some words for Activision/Vivendi over their departure from the ESA.

I think having [Activision and Vivendi] pull out of the ESA reflects an unfortunate lack of leadership... They're a big company and we feel that when you're a big company you've got a responsibility to consumers to work on policy issues which are very, very important to consumers. And the best way to do that is with an industry consensus... There's always tensions inside these organizations, but for the most part it works... So it was sad to see them step away from that responsibility. We hope that others don't do that, but I think that the onus is on the ESA to prove that membership in it is good for the company and good for consumers. And I think we're going to see the ESA redouble its efforts to prove that.

Corporate mudslinging is the best! I wonder what they'll say about LucasArts. Maybe EA just doesn't want to be the only one left in the ESA if everyone leaves.
