Gamespot parent company CBS Interactive, EA, Microsoft and Zynga have signed an amicus brief against the US’s Defense of Marriage Act. They’re the only companies directly involved in gaming to get behind the brief, which EA said is impractical for employers, as it forces them to treat same-sex and different-sex partnered employees under different rules. Additionally, Polygon reports EA will further cement its reputation as the most pro-actively anti-homophobic games industry body by hosting a one-day conference on LGBT issues in video games next week.
