In calling for nominations for this year's "The Worst Company in America" awards, awards host The Consumerist says that Electronic Arts might be in the running for winning the dubious distinction for a third year in a row. According to the publication, EA is already getting a lot of nominations in the early part of the process.
Last year the company won the award, much to the chagrin of executives at the company like EA Studios EVP Patrick Soderlund, outgoing US PR head Jeff Brown, and Peter Moore, who all defended the company and denied that they worked for "the worst company in the U.S."
"We haven’t even begun to ask for nominations from readers for the next Worst Company In America tournament, but some are already making the case for once again giving the Golden Poo trophy to reigning two-time WCIA winner Electronic Arts," said The Consumerist. "While EA’s growth in recent years has been positive, the way the company treats its customer base may be dooming the video game publisher to another season the WCIA finals."
The publication goes on to say that EA's decision to mostly ignore these awards has not served the company well...
