    Ah yes, that was on Gamespot, I laughed pretty hard at that.

    Wow. Do some research before forming lynch mobs. It was a promotional stunt for Dante's Inferno. It was based off one of the Seven Deadly Sins, Greed.

    I'm certain we'll see more of this as well.

    Quoted for truth. I am surprised their games still sell. 50-70$ for a slight graphical improvement and updated rosters. I have a feeling that the EA games HQ's supply of Miller High Life has been revoked.

    Lynch mob? We're just expressing our disgust at EA in general.

    EA are the same guys who released FIFA 98: Road to France 98 and then 6 months later World Cup 98 which was essentially just the 32 teams that qualified that year. That type of behaviour is what most of the comments are about.

    If you're handing out cash as a promo for a game release questions need to be asked.

    Why? Its just a promotional stunt that is just to ramp up hype, something pretty much all companies do. They sent out the check to see people's "greed", they basically said you can cash it if you want. If you didn't know, Dante's Inferno does have the Seven Deadly Sins are its main theme. They've already done Lust, IIRC.

    the promotions for the game are stupid.
    first, they had a fake protest. hiring 20 people to hold signs saying "infer-NO" or praystation not playstation

    then they basically had a contest to whore out a booth babe, but didn't do that and apologized for that promo
    then they have their greed campaign, if you preorder the game you save 6.66 dollars.
    and they sent a bunch of reviewers 200 dollar checks in a fancy box, with a note saying, if you cash it, you fall into the sin of greed, if you don't you fall into the sin of prodigal

    lame marketing. most people haven't even heard of their campaign, hell, i had to look it up.
