I will never forgive EA for what they did with two of my favorite properties, Ultima and Wing Commander. I can only hope that situations like this will cause consumers to not buy their products. However this will not happen for one reason, there are too many console gamers out there who just don't care enough to realize what EA is really all about. Luckily the NFL2k ordeal helped change a bit of that, but this bit of news about MW makes it CLEARLY evident that EA no longer sees a place for PC gamers in its profit margin.
The only "EA" game I plan to purchase ever again is Spore, mostly because Mr Wright still seems to get free reign to design and polish good games.
And sort of off topic, could you imagine the witchhunt that would ensue if EA announced a unilateral implementation of StarForce over all product lines?
