So I was just reading an article about how EA staged a massive protest group (websites, hand outs, protests- the whole nine yards!) against their new Dante's Inferno game coming out next year, personally I think it was brilliant and believable. But now the Christians are all pissy because it makes them look like assholes.

funny how that works out... it made me laugh just thought I'd share :)

So the protests at E3 were staged? Good PR move.

I saw several blog posts about that protest, some which realized it was staged, and some that thought it was real.

It was a pretty effective Poe. The Christians complaining about it ought to think about the fact that if it wasn't plausible that there would be a group staging such a protest, no one would have believed it. It only makes them look bad because it's completely believable that some Christians would act that way.

Love it! Except perhaps that EA make no secret of trying to take over the world ... ever read one of their EULAs? *shudder*
