It was an absolutely brilliant PR response, they came out swinging and launched their marketing weeks ahead of deadline.
This time some site says "Hey we noticed a page on Amazon, it has no details but a name and I price I guess?" and their response is to blacklist?
It's a different situation obviously as the French site doesn't have the pull of Kotaku who would be much more difficult to blacklist, but you'd think that a "no comment" from Acti would have been a much more appropriate move.

It's also quite concerning that, due to what appears to be a **** up from either Amazon or EA has been noted by a journalist (ie, a guy doing his job) and that he and his outlet is then punished for it.
For goodness sakes GOG, please don't be caught in the same situation - actually trying to do research or any more than regurgitating media releases is obviously off limits in the gaming industry.
