Online Fail: RIP Project 10 Dollars

May 15, 2013

Holy Man Jam, Boulder, CO  Aug. 1970

The death of the “online pass” is actually important to me as, lately, EA has been publishing a lot of games I want to play.

    Microsoft is also getting rid of the Microsoft Points as well with the new console.

    Hey, I had a scary thought this afternoon.

    Is it possible that EA is trying to score some positive press by announcing this “magnanimous gesture”, when in fact, the imminent Microsoft Press party will unveil “features” in the next Xbox that make Project 10 Dollars redundant anyway?

      Yes.

      Yep, EA & Activision are worked in heavily into the next Xbox’s online plans which will be unveiled next week. EA is trying to earn brownie points for something that will already be implemented into XBL’s next iteration. No way are they foregoing a $10-15 mil revenue stream out of good faith. Complete BS & posturing.

      Welcome to American Business; where there is no such thing as good faith.
