Byte: Even the mighty can be humbled

This story has been doing the rounds on RPS and all the other usual games websites for about a week now, so I guess it was about time the BBC caught up.

I think it's quite funny that the guy who made the announcement is called "Humble", given the breathtaking arrogance and contempt EA displayed towards their customers during the whole Spore debacle. Clearly though, it's a step in the right direction, even if it is, technically speaking, a step backwards. But it does go to show that consumer pressure can work, even with big, lumbering, small-brained, bean-counting behemoths like EA.
