EA bombarded with anti-gay messages over game content
EA has been taking a ridiculous amount of stick from certain quarters over their choice to include gay and lesbian relationships in their games.
The potential for homosexual relationships in the Mass Effect series and Star Wars: The Old Republic has attracted thousands letters filled with angry anti-gay sentiment over the content.
Corporate communications VP at EA Jim Brown said, "Every one of EA's games includes ESRB content descriptors so it's hard to believe anyone is surprised by the content. This isn't about protecting children, it's about political harassment."
He continued, "EA has not been pressured by any groups to include LGBT characters in our games. However, we have met with LBGT groups and sponsored industry forums to discuss content and harassment of players in online forums. In short, we do put options for same-sex relationships in our games; we don't tolerate hate speech on our forums."
