BF4 Launch video that doesn't focus on the glitches would have been a bitch to make.

holy crap.

I'm sure this is standard procedure for a lot of companies, not just Video Game related.

edit just noticed "Do not make a video that focuses on glitches in the game"

Oh, EA. That is the same kind of thing as non-disclosure agreement as far as I'm concerned

This seems like a very typical practice. The thing that makes Microsoft look so scummy is telling video makers not to talk about the promotion.

If someone is up front saying 'hey, im being paid by ea for this video' most people really wont care what they have to say. It's a little bit important in this whole conversation.

That's part that makes it potentially illegal, so kind of important.

Yeah, I sure could use some extra scratch some Xbox Live money, the best place to go for multiplayer and entertainment content that gets the DLC I care about first.

This is completely fine and EA are well within their rights to do this. I see no problem with it. Long live EA, the saviours of gaming!

Right, how much can I get for that?

I think this is just sleazy, I don't think it's as bad as MS/machinima as the embargo date is before video release date, so it seems your allowed to tell people your getting paid.

I think technically, it could still be illegal though as the videos would have to be tagged and I'm sure most of them aren't, but that's not entirely EA's fault.

That $10 CPM though is huge.

It's the only thing that makes it illegal. Shady practices like this aren't new, and won't stop.

I haven't seen anyone arguing that. MS is the only one that we know of that has the NDA added into it which is the part that makes the legality come into question.

I'm sure we could all guess that EA would be doing it too. The more exposed, the better so people can realize how ridiculous the industry is.

Hell, find me one video of BF4 from November where the player was saying how smooth and stable the game was so we realize that we should have seen it a while ago. :D

From a friend you know who has played the game, that opinion you can trust.
