EA exec responds to Lasky slagging

"Mitch needs to try decaf." Ooh burn.

Electronic Arts communications boss Jeff Brown has hit back at suggestions the company has lost its way, using the kind of barbed language usually only seen on internet forums.

He was responding to a post on the blog of former EA exec Mitch Lasky. As reported last week, Lasky reckons EA is "in the wrong business" and has been pursuing a "bankrupt strategy" of late. Nonsense, said Brown.

"Mitch needs to try decaf," he told Venturebeat, before implying Lasky is just bitter because the post of CEO went to silver fox John Riccitiello.

"It's never easy being turned down for a job but most people don’t spend three years obsessing about it," Brown said. "Since Mitch left EA, Apple invented the iPhone, Facebook evolved to include a gaming platform and EAMobile became the world leader." BOOOM.

Rumours that Brown and Lasky have agreed to meet by the recycling bins in the car park at 5pm no blades are completely made up.
