EA Guinness World Record

If you have been following the gaming industry, we are sure that you must have heard a lot regarding EA Games. EA or Electronic Arts is arguably the biggest game development company in the industry right now. Also, you might have heard about a popular platform called Reddit where you will find discussions on almost every topic out there. Now, one such topic on Reddit was the game from EA, Star Wars Battlefront II.

One of the controversial and most hated thing regarding this game was the loot boxes present inside. On one fine day in 2017, someone from EA community team Reddit account decided to post a comment. Little did they know that this comment from them will go down in history for all the wrong reasons.

In response to user complaints regarding unlocking characters, an unknown community manager posted a reply. Here is the reply that was given by that community manager who is yet-to-be-known at the time of writing this article.

Since posting the above reply on Reddit in 2017, it has gained about 683,000 downvotes which makes it the most downvoted Reddit comment in history. This has been acknowledged by Guinness World Records as well and they have added it to their 2020 edition. Now, this embarrassment would almost have been avoided by EA if no one found out about this Guinness World Record. However, a Reddit user by the name of -amasha- found out about this record on Guinness World Record’s website. The user posted about this discovery and that post has garnered about 80,000 upvotes since then.

Now, this comment is also the most downvoted comment on Reddit by a long margin. For context, the second-most downvoted comment in Reddit history has just 88,906 downvotes. We can, therefore, say that this comment from EA rightly deserves the world record that they created but they might not like it.

The official PS5 website is live! Is Playstation 5 reveal imminent?

Sony has launched its PS5 homepage on the official website of Playstation, for the much-rumored February reveal event of the much-awaited next-gen console that is due to release this year. 

It was initially spotted on Reddit, Uk and German versions of the website which are live now, allowing users to sign up for the latest news via email from Playstation itself about the PS5. 

“We’ve begun to share some of the incredible features you can expect from PlayStation 5,” reads the paragraph on PlayStation site, “but we’re not quite ready to fully unveil the next generation of PlayStation. Sign up below to be among the first to receive updates as we announce them, including news on the PS5 release date, PS5 price and the upcoming roster of PS5 launch games.”

Sony still hasn’t decided a price for the PS4 successor and is instead waiting to see what the rival Microsoft plans to keep for the Xbox Series X, which is slated to release in the upcoming Holiday period. 

The reason is unclear behind the page going live so early but it does seem that Sony is gearing up to reveal more information about the much-awaited PS5.

Kobe Bryant Best Quotes About Life

The sudden death of the legend has put the whole sports world in shock. Bryant died in a helicopter crash alongside his daughter in the hills of California. 

Kobe has been an inspiration for all and has inspired many on and off-field. Just like his game he has inspired people through his wisdom and the life he lived. 

Here are the few memorable quotes from the legend Kobe Bryant:

In a recent interview with USA Today just three days before his death he said, “You got to do what you love to do. I love telling stories.”

During an interview in 2019 with ESPN, Bryant said. “Because I am. That’s just the maturation. That’s 17 years of seeing everything the game can dish out. I’ve seen it all before. There’s no need to get too crazy or bent out of shape. There are still challenges every day. But I’m still having fun. I was born to play this game. I still love it.”

In the year 2015, from a profile in GQ, “I have ‘like minds.’ You know, I’ve been fortunate to play in Los Angeles, where there are a lot of people like me. Actors. Musicians. Businessmen. Obsessives. People who feel like God put them on earth to do whatever it is that they do. Now, do we have time to build great relationships? Do we have time to build great friendships? No. Do we have time to socialize and to hang out aimlessly? No. Do we want to do that? No. We want to work. I enjoy working.”

During a 2008 interview, Kobe quoted, “Have a good time. Life is too short to get bogged down and be discouraged. You have to keep moving. You have to keep going. Put one foot in front of the other, smile and just keep on rolling.”

One of Kobe Bryant’s famous Instagram quotes, “Be sad. Be mad. Be frustrated. Scream. Cry. Sulk. When you wake up you will think it was just a nightmare only to realize it’s all too real. You will be angry and wish for the day back, the game back THAT playback. But reality gives nothing back and nor should you.”

2015 SBS Sports’ documentary “Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” he quoted, “We all can be masters at our craft, but you have to make a choice. What I mean by that is, there are inherent sacrifices that come along with that. Family time, hanging out with friends, being a great friend, being a great son, nephew, whatever the case may be. There are sacrifices that come along with making that decision.”

“When we are saying this cannot be accomplished, this cannot be done, then we are short-changing ourselves. My brain, it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I have to sit there and face myself and tell myself, ‘You’re a failure,’ I think that is worse, that is almost worse than death.”

Here are some more quotes from the legend Kobe Bryant.

I’ll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it’s sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.

There’s been a lot of talk of me being a one-man show but that’s simply not the case. We win games when I score 40 points and we’ve won when I score 10.

Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise.

My parents are my backbone. Still are. They’re the only group that will support you if you score zero or you score 40.

These young guys are playing checkers. I’m out there playing chess.

I don’t want to be the next Michael Jordan, I only want to be Kobe Bryant.
