    Default EA give away £20,000 in fuel and cause chaos in London

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...on/7599639.stm (video)

    A stunt in which £20,000 of petrol was given away in north London to promote a computer game has been criticised as "irresponsible and dangerous".
    Thought this was hilarious... EA trying to promote Mercenaries 2 give away 20 grand of petrol (~$40,000) I mean, what did they expect? They fucked it up big time but I guess their intentions were good.

    Yeah, giving away petrol is not very topical, but it sure did the job.

    Oh that is hilarious. I especially love the part where everyone lost their shit over it, despite the problems being directly related to the retarded people.

    I heard Mercenaries 2 was a failing project, anyway, so they've probably lost more money than they'll make off of it. I don't know, I haven't played the game, but a few friends have it and say it's not that great.

    This takes whoring for publicity to a whole new level.

    Just wait you EA bastards...We don't have £20,000 of petrol to give away, but we're still gonna knock your "WAR" trash off the hypemeter!

    Why would you take your car and spend money on petrol just so you can get more money for petrol? Why not walk or ride a bike or something...

    The English doing the only thing they know of nowadays: bitching.
    EA sucks but this is probably the best thing they've ever done.
