EA feature on 'The Consumerist's Worst Company in America 2013' bracket
Posted on March 20, 2013 by Drew Bergmark

Last year, Eduardo reported on how EA and Sony were 'competing' for Consumerist's Worst Company in America bracket but this year, Electronic Arts is back on the bracket for 2013 and it looks like they have an easy first round going up against Anheuser Busch, the beer company. Since Sony's online marketplace PlayStation Network wasn't hacked, Sony doesn't return to the bracket this year.

As voted upon by consumers, Electronic Arts actually won the 'Golden Poo trophy' last year but I doubt they actually received any polished pellets. You have to remember that Mass Effect 3 came out right before the bracket was announced so all the hate about Mass Effect 3's ending just spurred up the bad hype for EA.

This year, the Consumerist nominated the video game publisher for their quarrel with the PC community over SimCity and their inapplicable way of dodging apologies. Plus you can't forget that EA CFO Blake Jorgenson has been saying at business or technology conference that EA will implement micro-transactions into more of their titles.

Just to note this: Bank of America, who foreclosed homes on American citizens and veterans illegally, has only won the silver trophy as of the last couple years. We'll be keeping you guys updated on what's new with EA and The Consumerist's bracket.
