I'll preface this

  • Just as it has the EA name attached to Madden nfl 21 coins. Same could happen if it was Epic or Activision. If CDPR, Valve or some other cherished company did the same, remarks would be completely different. Edit: Sony did the same and the general reception on those remarks are mostly positive. Stay refreshing, Reddit. I really don't think so. If their primary customer base is African American is does not make sense to market to them at the moment. As they will not be spending at this time, as games is not on there heads at this time. Not about honor imo. More or less they not going to the shops immediately to make purchases. Now with use of marketing they could utilize this as a show of solidarity with this market. Maybe this is the cynical part of me. A nice gesture, but aren't these the very same men and women who dared Colin Kaepernick's name out of a song in a few of the past Madden games?

    I'll preface this by saying I do not think that it's a bad thing for them to bring awareness to this issue. It is important that it can't just be dismissed by taking a look from it. That said, I really do hold a certain amount of doubt towards multi-billion buck multinational corporations paying lip service to significant social problems. They are in the best possible position to do more than simply put out a press release or public statement. Of course, as a philosophical business they are under no obligation to buy Madden 21 coins do so, and yet it rings hollow when they attempt to stand in solidarity with the common people. Now there are companies out there that are doing things and this is the opportunity to highlight those attempts; to show that they're more than simply words.
