Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has literally JUST been announced and already EA is running their mouth. Fresh off of last night's Black Ops 2 worldwide reveal, Electronic Arts global product manager Kevin O'Leary had some not-so-positive words to say about it.
"Poor Black Ops 2 you look tired, you should take a year off and rest," he wrote on Twitter.
Although his comments likely reflect what many of us are thinking, I think we are all even more tired of the fact that EA keeps yapping their trap about Activision. This goes back to the whole Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3 showdown that happened towards the end of last year. Look, Activision won. Regardless of whether or not you consider their game better or worse, the fact is it sold better…A LOT better than Battlefield 3.
I recognize, as part of EA, it's your job to defend your company, but honestly you are starting to sound like the attention-craving younger brother. Give it a rest already, we don't want another war of words happening this year. I can already see the comparison screenshots happening now. There's enough room in the gaming industry for Call of Duty and whatever it is EA attempts to cook up to "compete" against them.
Just shut up EA. I'm sick of you running your mouth, and this is coming from someone who actually enjoyed Battlefield 3 more than Modern Warfare 3. I recognize this was his personal tweet, and it may not reflect the entire company's opinion of the game, but Kevin must also understand that what he posts on Twitter is a reflection on EA. And while I'm at it, you can shut up too Activision. Let gamers just play the games they enjoy.
And for the record, before you attack me as a CoD fanboy, I wasn't too impressed with the trailer either. But I recognize people enjoy the game, and I respect that. These are video games.
