The Consumerist holds an annual poll every year to decide who the worst company in America is. This year EA was included in the nomination process. And this year it also ‘won’ the title of ‘The Worst Company in America.’ Their prize was a Golden Poo.
To get the title, EA had to beat out 64 other companies through 4 bracket rounds. In the final round, EA killed Bank of America by 29 points. Obviously, dreadful customer support and other anti-consumer moves have not been kind to Electronic Arts. One would hope that this ‘award’ will help set EA straight, but more than likely it won’t.
In a statement to Joystiq, EA says: “We’re sure that bank presidents, oil, tobacco and weapons companies are all relieved they weren’t on the list this year. We’re going to continue making award-winning games and services played by more than 300 million people worldwide.”
