    im older than you, have more grey hairs than you, so am allowed to bitch about thing's :D, point is valid, they have an error in their game, and so to prove that it isn't they pay him even more money to do that, you have to admit its childish, but then again its EA so what you expect

    I doubt they paid him anything more than his endorsement deal pays out. He is under contract to do promo's and such. Regardless, EA was very clever to rebut it in the manner they did. Most companies simply press the ignore button, at least EA responded.

    That wasn't the point. Age is of no consequence, it's just odd that one would get worked up over this instead of taking it as it is ... something humorous. It's obvious they know it's a bug. They aren't trying to cover it up Area 51 style. It's like someone screwing up and saying "all intended", then laughing after. A response is so much better than what would normally would've been done ... not saying anything at all. It's a joke, they aren't dissing anyone including the person who discovered the bug ... take it as a joke.

    you only get shouted at when you get grouchy at a nice humerous interaction with the client base. That probably came out of their marketing budget.

    So take a deep breath, smile, have a swig of coffee and lighten up.
