EA Chosen as Worst Company in America on The Consumerist

While I am sure most people are not too surprised by this piece of news, I think some others will be. The Consumerist recently held a tournament of sorts where people can vote for the worst company in America. Plenty of companies were on the list, along with some unexpected ones, but the results are in: EA is the worst company in America. EA beat out Bank of America after more than 250,000 voters voiced their opinion throughout the tournament, with EA gaining 64% of the final vote. In order to reach the final, EA got past Best Buy, Sony, AT&T, and Comcast, while Bank of America beat Citi Bank, Ticket Master, Walmart, and Chase. Whether or not you agree with EA being the worst company in America, EA itself is less than pleased. EA's senior director of corporate communications John Reseburg says he is sure "bank presidents, oil, tobacco, and weapons companies are all relieved" to have been excluded from The Consumerist's list, but says EA will continue to make award-winning games. Reseburg also said EA is trying to get more involved with consumers, and also pointed out The Escapist's "Best Developer" competition that EA won.
