Right but I really don't think most people are going to stay up for 12 out of 24 hours and do nothing but play a videogame obsessively so that they can return it. Most normal people have lives, routines, responsibilities and so on. I'm sure there are some extreme fringe weirdos who will but I just can't see it being enough to matter. Most EA games outside of say Medal of Honor can't be realistically beat in those time frames unless you stayed up and did nothing but that all day.
If this was say within 3+ days of first launch then yeah, I could see rampant abuse.
