    Thumbs up EA May Face Legal Action Over Battlefield 4

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/ea-...l#xtor=RSS-998

    Electronic Arts may be facing a potential lawsuit over Battlefield 4, as the law office of Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is investigating to see whether EA and/or a number of its officers complied with the federal securities laws between July 24, 2013 and December 4, 2013. This investigation focuses on statements made by EA during that timeframe regarding the development and sales of Battlefield 4, and the shooter’s impact on the company’s revenue and projects moving forward.
    “If you purchased EA common stock between July 24, 2013 and December 4, 2013 and suffered losses on that investment, you are encouraged to contact Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC,” the law office states. “Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC is an Atlanta, Georgia law firm that dedicates its practice to vigorous representation of shareholders and investors in litigation nationwide, including shareholder class action and derivative litigation.”
    Initially PlayStation 4 owners who purchased Battlefield 4 were met with a number of crashes and corrupted save files. DICE released an update on November 26, but that hasn’t stopped the gossipers from pegging the buggy experience on EA’s need to beat Activision’s Call of Duty: Ghosts to the market. A supposed QA tester has even confirmed this theory, saying that EA rushed the game through the quality assurance phase.
    "Listen, we have to do a better job of getting games into the market that are as bug-free as possible," says Patrick Söderlund, executive vice president of EA Studios, in a recent interview with The Guardian. "What I would say is, games are becoming more and more complex – even though we'll run a beta and we'll do massive amounts of testing, there are certain things, especially in an online-focused environment, that you won't catch. I wish I could day that we will, but I don't think we'll ever catch everything."
    "We try and do an update every second day to improve the game experience, and there are patches in the works for the PS3 and Xbox 360," Söderlund adds. "I bet we'll have to do the same thing on the next-gen machines. But our commitment to making the best gameplay experience on a continual basis is there."
    The potential lawsuit is taking the side of EA shareholders in all of this mess, as they may have taken a hit in the wallet thanks to all the negativity surrounding the game. Just recently EA put a hold on all future DLC until the bugs have been ironed out, a move that didn’t sit well with investors, causing a 7.3 percent dip.
    That all said, right now the law office is merely conducting an investigation, so stay tuned.

    Pointless if you ask me, I don't have issues any more and when I did, certainly not to the point of a lawsuit. Before the last patch, I had one crash every 4-5 matches.

    If this gains traction, companies will only fear pushing boundaries and will release "safe" titles like CoD.

    Bioshock doesn't have half the scope of BF4, so obviously it'll be simpler to make. And they did release it after 2 years.
