If you’re a Pogo player, you’re in luck because Electronic Arts is planning to give away 200 billion tokens to its players! This impressive amount would be of about 12,600 tokens for each player to use as they like for purchasing virtual clothes and other goodies for their avatars. Why? Because EA likes you!
“We’ve received hundreds of stories from players that tell us Pogo.com has been a cost effective way for them to escape from their day, have fun and connect with friends and family”, wrote Pogo Community Manager Tahd Frentzel. “From a mom cutting down on long distance calls by chatting and playing with her military daughter stationed in Germany to couples having “date night” online while one is traveling on business, we are so proud to provide a fun and familiar place for people to stay close to those they love.”
If you’re not yet a part of the big picture, you can still register for free until April 30 and get your Pogo tokens as a gift from EA. “In these tough economic times, we want to give players a place to escape and relax at home without breaking their budget,” said Michael Marchetti, Pogo.com General Manager. See? They’re not as money-thirsty as they seemed to be, after all!
