I must say that it is quite funny watching all of the loudest EA critics and boycott organizers collapse like the Yankees against the Red Sox in the ALCS. I won’t name any names, or point any fingers, but MVP Baseball will probably not suffer much at the cash register this season. At least, not because of some EA boycott.

I’m still standing strong though, as are others. Of course, I haven’t purchased an EA Sports game in many years (and never a baseball product), so I don’t count.

  1. Chris, I am almost afraid to ask. I have not been keeping up with the latest in EA buying up the world and MLB third party exclusive contracts and the like.

    What caused the kaboom? I have to say that I was a little disapointed – I read the title and figured I was about to read some classic gaming goodness.

  2. The sound of the boycotters folding :-). There was a lot of noise about EA, exclusive deals, and boycotting teh company. That lasted, in some cases, as long as the next EA game was published.

  3. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I won’t boycott a game that I’d enjoy because of a companies business practices. Life’s just to short for that and videogames aren’t worth fighting battles over.

  4. I think this is what we call "easy come, easy go" – in general I think boycotts of videogames, videogame developers, and videogame publishers are pretty stupid. If a game sucks less than its counterparts, I am usually going to play the no so bad version.
