CBS, EA, Microsoft and Zynga sign Amicus brief against DOMA

Wednesday, 27th February 2013 22:02 GMT By Brenna Hillier

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.

Thanks, GamePolitics.

    EA are weird when it comes to this. I mean as a company they are every bit as evil as you can expect. Truly horrible people, utterly tolerant to the extreme, but still horrible. They just feel that everyone should bear the burden of their hate equally.

    Sorry but after reading about EA’s plan for micro-transactions, I won’t care about them even if they cured cancer. It’s a nice gesture though and hopefully more people will rally against DOMA.

    I thought you probably wouldn’t be.

    Passion like that can’t last forever – and on other subjects you were definitely capable of adult discourse.
