    Man and 360 survive nasty car crash

    Amazingly, his 360, beat the hell up, still works. In one picture, he shows his games in a sorry state, including EA's "Need for Speed: Most Wanted"

    So, after telling his story on the X-Box forums, what should happen? Apparently Microsoft is replacing his 360 for him, and EA sent him a copy of the recently released "Need For Speed: Carbon".

    So for all the "EA and Microsoft are EVIL!!!1111" people out there, just wanted to point out a nice thing both companies did, that they had no reason to even consider doing. Kudos to both companies.

    EA isn't evil, it just does some dirty deeds in the corporate world. Plus, all it's non-sports titles suck...

    Wow. That was incredibly kind of them. They definitely deserve more of my moolah in the future.

    Of course, they do get some great publicity for this.

    And no one knows who caused the crash in the first place. Hmmm.....

    I've never thought of Microsoft as evil. EA... well they sure do know how to define the word "suck", but it looks like they're taking a much deserved break from that right now.

    After playing the NFS Carbon demo, i'm still under the impression that EA are at least a little bit evil.

    Evil might be to strong a word for EA, I might go with sinister.

    I gotta wonder how many people are reading this article, and dreaming up ways to try and get a free 360 out of Microsoft.
