    Not something I ever really expect to say, but read below.

    http://au.xbox360.ign.com/articles/847/847273p1.html

    It's almost like watching a fight between Freddy and Jason when they've just been trying to kill you.

    Well in this case it's pretty clear that EA is fighting on our side in this...it just seems to weird to be proud of a company that I still fear will eventually have a near monopoly of the 3rd party developers.

    EDIT: See page 2 for Fox's response.

    For some crazy reason I respect EA a little bit now. I was thinking of something philisophical to say, but it is too damn late. Maybe I'll think of it in the morning.

    Yeah respect added for sure. It should be interesting to see if Fox makes a response.

    In a way EA is just protecting their product, since soon Bioware will belong to EA games, mwhahaha.

    I think it is good that EA is stepping up and taking up the battle against the American press that claims that videogames are pure evil.

    My suggestion should be banning Liberal Conservatism :D Those guardians of morales :p

    Yeah, that is why they are doing it. However I havn't seen anything like this from Take-Two or Rockstar. It would be nice if they could defend their own games instead of just making more and more extreme games.

    Finally.
    Hope this puts the Fuc*ed up media in its place.

    But it's funny, how in aus, as soon as our media says anything about wrong about Video games, the next night they make a public apology..Because they know they will get all fuc*ed up from the Aussie public.
    You Americans and your Jack Thompson's.

    Who can blaim them for not responding, they have nothing that can justify their statement.
    I think that EA should drag them into an injurier lawsuit.

    slader anyone, "fox news fair and balanced" now thats a joke, i mean really thats like blaming an R rated movie for it influincing kids. i mean really there is a rating for a reason, what about the who "digital rape" thing that they also said was capable through the game over live, even though it isnt on live....

    Well, at least there is a chance that they would listen to EA rather than a bunch of bitching fanboys.
    It's a good thing. I can't wait to hear what fox says.. if anything.

    Well if Fox is wrong, I do not think they will say anything. It's a common practise if a network is wrong, they just stay silent untill the whole matter is forgotten..
    And they will lay down their weapons for a while before going after a game made by EA again.

    EA is probably warming up for the wonderful Video Game industry PAC discussed in Duke's manifesto recently. It will be interesting to see which politicians (pimps) and lobbyist (whores) come to the aid of the video game industry.

    I'm inspired to sue any news company that says "everybody likes Mario" now.
