As we are all probably acutely aware of, last year Electronic Arts (EA) won The Consumerist’s poll for “Worst Company in America,” yes, beating out banks, mortgage lenders, Monsonto and any company that produces reality television. Of course, this has more to do with the fact that you do not scorn the internet, for the internet will find a way to make you pay in the end if it can organize itself. Organize itself it did and Electronic Arts was punished with the burden of called the worst company in America.
So as things are starting to look bleak for EA in this year’s Consumerist poll, which could make them a two-time “Worst Company in America,” it has forced the hand of Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore to actually talk about this, and he doesn’t seem that happy. In a statement issued by EA, Moore talks about some of the company’s faults and believes that Electronic Arts can do better for the consumers and be a better company. He also says that EA are “winners,” which get hated upon just for winning, much like the Yankees, the Lakers and Manchester United.
