Schwartz > haptics. I think.

Don’t get me wrong, EA Sports has done plenty of shady business in regards to utilizing the likenesses of athletes, but let’s not pretend like the NCAA has anything figured out about how to handle the marketing of its players, either.

Regardless of the design itself which rightfully deserved its WTF reaction from everyone, Valve does need to figure out a better PR strategy if it ever hopes to reach beyond its indoctrinated followers and find a new/serious audience in the living room.
