POSTED BY bolson ON Apr 7, 2009 Rolls Out 200 Billion Token Stimulus Package

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 7, 2009 - Just in time for tax day, Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) casual game site Pogo.comTM has promised to grant each man, woman and teen on the site* 12,600 tokens to give players a little something extra during this challenging economic time. Players will be able to take the gifted tokens and go shopping in the PogoTM Mini Mall for new clothes, goodies or background to deck out their personalized online avatars.

"We've received hundreds of stories from players that tell us has been a cost effective way for them to escape from their day, have fun and connect with friends and family", said 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."

"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, General Manager. " provides a great value by providing players a vehicle to play countless hours on games they love while connecting with friends and family -- for free."

Pogo introduced Pogo Minis to the Club PogoTM audience in 2005, and has since extended the online avatars to its free site to allow even more people to express themselves while playing casual games.

* Free registration on required.  One redemption per account.  Offer ends April 30, 2009.
