Ex Executive Vice-President of Origin? I loved that Company!

Ultima RPGs.. Groundbreaking Graphics, great story. Deep gameplay. What are people so up in arms about?

We have no idea if the article is talking about Origin studios or Origin piece of shit malware.
'Sides, FIFA and Madden aren't exactly inspiring much confidence here (not that you can vary much in those franchises... I mean the game doesn't exactly change its rules with time).

We'll have to see and hope that this guy has the brain, the balls and the passion to turn EA around and make them a good company again. But seeing as he hasn't yet axed Origin piece of shit malware, I don't think this guy is going to be it. Meaning I'm going to wait for EA's stock price to drop below a dollar, and buy the majority share of the company for a few ten K and get the shit done properly.

From the article: "I also believe EA's strategy is sound. Our focus on our talent, our brands and our platform together with our investment in next-generation consoles, mobile and PC free-to-play, as part of our ongoing transition to digital, is right," he wrote. "But we have plenty of work ahead to ensure our collective success."

He then went on to say that he will show gamers his true power, let out a blood-curdling evil laugh, then disappeared from the stage in a burst of sulphur and flame. In all seriousness, this is problematic but unsurprising. He's touting the obsessive quest to kill used games from his very first day with his "transition to digital" remark. That's what really worries me.

I'm not an expert on corporations, but I don't think any company has ever made someone Executive Vice President of a piece of software before. That'd be like saying I am Commander in Chief of my PC.
