How could they possibly prove that you "know" of a bug and didn't report it!? Are they mind readers? Are they just going to assume that anyone who just happens to unwittingly be within close proximity to a bug exploiter that he/she is completely aware that there is an exploit going on? This is just beyond stupid.

Maybe they are trying to hold onto that "Worst Company" title.
Most likely their embedded spyware will phone home every possible metric about the game and your computer, and they would look it up in their logs.

Banning EA games from my library sounds more like a feature than a threat. It's sort of like a spam filter.

Shouldn't you guys be happy when EA shuts down games then?
They shut down game servers not because EA is hurting on money but because they are greedy fucks that are pushing people to buy the latest yearly roster update/modern military shooter/new paint job.

This is just insane and reaching unheard levels of draconian measures. Ah well, one more nail in the SC coffin. My only complain is that EA is again killing another damn good series for good all because they got greedy.

Dammit, the thought of never playing another SimCity as good as 2000 or 4, or playing another SC at all, makes me sad. EA sure loves destroying their IP.
Will Wright left EA long time ago, and most of good Maxis talent as well. There are many equally good city-building games around.

If developers want to get my money, they should not work for EA. Ask me how many times I bought The Witcher, The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings.
I will support publisher and developers that are not assholes. I will have no pitty for assholes. EA is beyond salvation. The sooner they go out of business, the better this industry will be.

Slick wrote on Jan 20, 2013, 16:27:

what enlightment thinking.

so your solution is that you don't agree with EA, so you will fuck artists out of money they earn by stealing their works. bravo. you're an idiot. and the fact that you openly praise piracy just makes you look like a knob.

"i don't agree with this, so that gives me the right to steal it"

riiiiiight

if you don't agree with something, then you have the right to not buy it, that's capitalism. and i encourage everyone to vote with their dollars. if you don't like the looks of something, no one's putting a gun to your head to either buy it, beta test it, etc. just don't do it, that's your freedom.

your freedom does NOT include the right to steal from artists. if you can't get over that, then at least TRY to see this from a corporation's viewpoint.... WHY DO YOU THINK THEY'RE PUTTING ALWAYS ON DRM?????? CAUSE OF ASSHATS LIKE YOU! THANKS!

No one likes meatloaf. It's always either too soggy or too dry, too much of one thing or not enough of it. I don't think I've ever met a meatloaf I've liked. Probably the closest was someone - this was forever ago - made mini-meatloafs in one of those mini-loaf pans and I seem to recall it wasn't bad.
Yes, soggy Meatloaf sucks. But have you seen him in concert live? Much better than homecooked!

So let me get this right:
I use MY time and put in MY effort to make sure that they make more money and they are THREATENING ME to LOCK ME OUT OF MY OWN GAMES?!

I acknowledge that EA reserve the right to go fuck itself, fuck its board of directors, fuck PR reps, fuck lawyers and fuck everybody else who was involved in writing this policy.
Additionally, I acknowledge that EA does not deserve and will not get a single penny of my money. Neither EA nor developers or nor any involved parties deserve to get my money. I acknowledge that if those developers do want to get paid, those developers should not have been employed by EA.
I acknowledge that should I choose so, I will continue to play any and all EA games without registering them with EA.

Viva la pirateria!

The best site i found so far to get notification about game sales is http://isthereanydeal.com/
http://www.steamprices.com/ is also good, but it's only for Steam. isthereanydeal monitors bunch of other retailers as well.
You can create your own wishlist and get notification of sales for those games.

Blue, our apartment complex of 5 buildings, ~3000 apartments in South Brooklyn is also w/o VZ service and they are saying the same thing..."months" until service will be restored.
Our maintenance office had to get new phone numbers from another provider to handle calls from residents.
I'm surprised there's no more public outcry about this incompetence. So much noise about State Island power problems, but nothing about VZ.

I'm on NC/Waterson. I can think of 3 TR i've seen clearly hacking speedbotting/aimhacking, as well as 2 VS players. One of the VS players was near the top of the leaderboard, and had just passed me after posting a couple hundred kills in merely an hour. Leaderboards were disabled since then. I haven't played much in the last few days though, so I'm not sure if they're still around.

If it's so rampant, don't they have punkbuster or similar antihack solution?

I think the fact that he posted his video and admitted what he did was a HUGE mistake. Now WarZ can actually sue him for intentionally causing this company material harm and they have this video as proof.
Even if Sergey Titov said "post an apology video and nothing will happen" doesn't mean nothing will happen. If the company is vengeful, they will go after this kid.

Great PR move by a President, Sony Online Entertainment to threaten somebody's family because of their fucking game.
Looks like that doucebag started backpedaling

Just to a make sure people know I was joking - we aren't hunting down hacker's families. Someone thought I was being too aggressive.

It's ridiculous what people have to jump through all because of Apple's stubbornness to make proper laptops with proper docking stations.

But shouldn't the same thing be said for any sort of new operating system regardless of device? Desktop, tablet, phone, when you have a new free OS come out your going to be having a ton of people flock to it.
But desktop OS upgrade has higher "friction" ratio. It's generally bigger, has more 'moving' parts and upgrades are more complicated with more things to go wrong.
Mobile is a much more controller environment, so Apple can better control how the upgrade process happens.

Maybe it has already been asked/stated/posted (I quickly skimmed the posts - sorry), but does the 'speculated' 93 to 95% include the legit consumers that DID purchase their games, BUT disabled the POS DRM?
Obviously they consider it pirated. Do you really think it's in their interest to show accurate, real-world numbers?
