EA stands up to anti-gay letters, says they were not pressured

EA has received thousands of letters concerning their portrayal of gay and lesbian characters in games. These letters call for the removal of this content, and insinuate that EA was pressured by outside groups to include this content. EA has decided to release a statement on the matter.

"EA has not been pressured by any groups to include LGBT characters in our games. However, we have met with LBGT groups and sponsored industry forums to discuss content and harassment of players in online forums. In short, we do put options for same-sex relationships in our games; we don't tolerate hate speech on our forums." - Jeff Brown, VP of corporate communications

Always a hot-button issue, I'm glad to see EA sticking up for their decisions.
