This. Anyone who doesn't think it's a placeholder knows nothing and is bias.

Regardless perception is the key here. The average joe schmoe knows nothing about coding. When presented this information though they should generally come to the conclusion that something is amiss even though it may not be. The coders should have used a common placeholder and not something like this. Ultimately, it may hurt sales, but probably in a very minor way.

Not only a placeholder, but a joke since it's so easy for IGN to get blown away...

You link to review sites known for being dirty, saying that they've named your title "Game of The Year" before its even released?

If i had a part in making anything related to BF4 I can definitely see myself getting carried away like this.

It also says nothing about IGN selecting it as their GOTY. "Predicting" was the word that was used, meaning it has not been determined.

I'm not trying to defend IGN, I'm not a fan at all but I think people may be making more of this than actually exists.

This isn't about "place holder" text IMO- do they have NO web QA process? Does EA of all companies not have a development location- local development locations.... internal locations for "testing" and having "placeholders" or multiple versions of their websites?

It's just ridiculous whatever way I look at it- honestly we all know the review's are paid off regardless- to me it just shows furthermore how lazy and inconsistent EA is.

The money doesn't go to better development (of games or websites) it goes to CEO's and other non-sense. Heck they probably outsourced all these sites to India.

Well, if you did indeed worked for them and did this, it would be pretty unprofessional.

And while you're not trying to defend IGN, you're certainly trying to defend EA.
