I have always found corporate games to be entertaining and generally good for us as consumers but every now and then two behemoths show us exactly how little they like each other by attempting to 1Up each other in the most pointless tasks.

Yesterday we announced that Activision has moved to cover it’s bases by registering a pile of Call of Duty related domain names leaving us guessing as to what the next instalment in the franchise will be.

Well not to be outdone, EA has now sent their domain hounds out and they have come back with a whopping 14 different domains teasing as to what the next Need For Speed Instalment will be.

From the uninteresting Need For Speed Underground East through to my favourite, Need For Speed Take Down.

The rest of the list is made up as follows, all starting with Need For Speed and ending in .com

Boost
Drift Kings
Eliminator
Lightning
No Limits
Overdrive
Proven
Redline
Showdown
Street Kings
The Run
Time Attack

    Judging by the header image of this article, there should a Need For Speed: Jizz right around the corner

    God, EA jsut comes accross as pathetic when it pulls crap like this.

    In the Activision-EA relationship dynamic, they are the reactive subserviant bitch, and Activision is the proactive alpha dog.

    When last did Activision try to 1up EA? Never, because they simply get on with their own thing, and sell bazillions of games.

    It seems like everything EA does is inspired by some lame attempt to outdo its competition.

    BC2’s entire map pack was delivered as a response to MW2’s. Then their who “Crysis will be a Halo killer” thing. And now this? A new low.

    Cummon EA, stop living in other companies’ shaddows.

    It’s sad and pathetic. You should be quietly focusing on making games, and promoting them on their own terms.

    Being super aggressive and loud mouthed is not winning you any new fans. For starters, you could get started fixing the hit detection in Bad Company 2, and that grinding bug in Skate 3.
