Well, they did tell people not to buy it.

This gives me a real feeling of pride and accomplishment.

Good stuff, People voting with their wallet, but on the upside at least now that game director won't have to explain to his daughter why there weren't female soldiers in those battles in WW2.

He might end up having to explain why they are selling the house though.

well at least he never had to make her feel bad by playing as a male set of hands which held a gun in a game, it's the reason I don't enjoy playing Metroid games or Tomb Raider, just can't get my head around why the main characters can't be my gender. No fun for me.

Sorry EA, I wouldve bought the game, but then I realized I was too uneducated.

That game is too uneducative!

Is this game in trouble?

It sold below Hardline, which is regarded as the worst game in the series. At the very least it's a disappointment, potentially a major bomb depending on how it did over the post-launch weeks.

They discounted it heavily in the first month so even if it sold a decent amount, I think we can already consider it a bomb.

Lower than Hardline for first week? Serves them right! And something tells me sales got worse thereafter.

I'd say it's justice, but until the NFL and FIFA open themselves up to allowing competing games for their leagues, EA will be free to shit the bed without discernable consequences.
