Cool Dads Get More Play In The Games For Guys Sale

Just in time for Father’s Day, EA is offering steep discounts on man-tastic games across pretty much every mobile gadget a cool Dad (or any guy) could own. This includes savings of up to 80% off games for iPhone and iPad on the App Store, 50% off games on the Verizon App Store or Amazon Appstore, and 40% off games on Google Play.

After all, Dads cannot live on electric razors and hilarious ties alone.

Guys who love fast cars can melt some tires in Real Racing 2 for iPhone or iPad, while sports lovers can experience mobile’s most authentic soccer action in FIFA SOCCER 12. And those are but two of the many manly titles on sale for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad for up to 80% off.

Players with Verizon smartphones can enjoy half-off some dude-tacular games, too. Score bone-crunching touchdowns in MADDEN NFL 12 or one of many more games on sale.

Meanwhile, Kindle Dads can indulge their D.I.Y. dreams with some extreme urban planning in SimCity Deluxe or choose from a wide selection of other games for Kindle and Kindle Fire.

Last but not least, Android Dads (or as we call them, “Dadroids”) can wield futuristic power tools aboard derelict starships in Dead Space or unwind with one of the other popular games on sale for up to 40% off at Google Play .

You don’t have to be menfolk to enjoy this sale. Game fans everywhere can stock up this weekend in a salute to dads, grads, and great games.

    Excuse me, but what the ****, EA. What the ****. Games for Guys? Seriously? Are girls not allowed to play these games then? I guess I'll confiscate my girlfriend's Dead Space game and hand her over to the authorities. Terrible marketing move, jerks. Way to alienate a huge portion of your customers and stereotype all male gamers as misogynistic ********. No one wins here except the people who should me marginalized. Go away.

    Wow! Somebody woke up with sand in their ****** today. It's a FATHER'S DAY promotion you tool bag. I'll bet you get upset when craft stores promote their products to women on Mother's Day too. Get over yourself.

    Did you not read the last sentence of the article... "You don’t have to be menfolk to enjoy this sale. Game fans everywhere can stock up this weekend in a salute to dads, grads, and great games." Relax, it's a father day special.

    Why are the sales on iOS up to 80% off but on Android only up to 40%? Talk about elitist Apple treatment....
