EA Kills Battlefield 3: Aftershock
After pulling off a largely successful AAA launch with Battlefield 3, which also served as a potent launch-pad for its Origin content-distribution platform, EA got carried away, and decided it could milk the name "Battlefield 3", only this time, the "battlefield" isn't on a PC or Console, but Apple's tech-toy, the iPad. EA launched Battlefield 3: Aftershock for the iPad, as the franchise's first entry to portable devices. Only the game was so offensively bad in every way, that EA decided to pull the plug on it.
To be fair, there are some pretty decent games out there for the iPad, which won on counts of good gameplay mechanics, and graphics engines that make decent use of what little hardware resources they have, even if its graphics-rendering capabilities aren't anywhere close to game-consoles, or even portable consoles such PS Vita.
