  EA's Ben Smith Leaves the Battlefield - Mods

This News Item has been viewed 4,630 times
The very well respected Ben Smith has updated his blog stating that he will no longer be working on Battlefield. Take a peek,

Quote:
Its been a fantastic ride, with some great games coming as a result (Secret Weapons, Vietnam and BF2), but as of the New Year I am no longer working on Battlefield.

I want to send a hearty shout out to everyone at Digital Illusions that have been so awesome to work with (which is everyone) over the time EA Partners has worked with them. They truly deserve the accolades their games have received and I wish them the best of luck on all future products.

To the folks in the community who have been such close partners in the last two years, I bid you adieu. If you need a new contact within DICE, please send me an e-mail or IM and I'll get it to you.

WHO CARES! EA is a money hungry crap company. If anything I'm glad to see that the more veteran EA employees are leaving, maybe someone who cares about it's customers and it's games will fill in his spot.

But still, 50 bucks for a PC game is a little steep... Theres a lota other stuff better then a GAME you can buy for 50 bucks. PC games always used to be cheaper then console games, like the most expensive was 30 bucks, but not anymore.

Dont you just love how the price of EVERYTHING goes up, but your pay dosnt equally go up with it? Pretty *****ty eh... And if say minium wage went up, they they would just raise the price on everything again because they think you can afford more, when the government is just raising it because people cant afford stuff at the price its at. But seriously, who could afford ANYTHING at 5.15 an hour, thats just a friggin joke.

Someone working for 5.15 minum wage would have to work TEN hours just to buy BF2, thats pretty sad. Ten hours isnt a big deal, but the fact that after those 10 hours all it takes to make you broke again is a 50 dollar computer game is pretty sad.
