2004 Electronic Arts received a letter signed by a group of 300 women.
They complained that their husbands were totally addicted playing "Need for Speed".

While the women were chasing the kids around the house, their husbands were chasing cars.
And while the men were shouting in the heat of the game, the children were screaming to get THEIR playstation back.

So the wives thought it was about time to make some changes and asked EA to come up with a game for "women only".
EA saw a new market and developed something completely different.

The idea was to let the player choose from pimped shopping trolleys to go on a full sale shopping mission. The game could be played online and all shopfanatic women (read: all women) could race against each other.

The goal: driving through all shopping malls in town and trying to grab the Most Wanted Bargains.

At a certain time all contracts with major online shops for realtime in-game shopping were prepared and the game was ready for production. All of a sudden an even larger group of men (around 3.000.000) protested and demanded "their" version of the game back. Since more profit was expected here, EA decided to drop the "women only" game. (you may all breathe out now).

But who knows... maybe one day "Most Wanted Bargains" will make it to the shelves http://www.worth1000.com/images/emoticon/wink.gif (now you may really breathe out).
