Are these banhammer warnings broadcast to everyone or just a select few?

how can a videogame company sell something to you then tell you once it's your property what you can and can't do with it?

property? just because you have the copy of a game doesn't mean you own ****

You do own a license to play the game. Although, game creators are trying to argue otherwise.

You do own the license to play the game, just not online.

Why would they ban people just because they're bad? Use some common sense people. Just because some random on gamefaqs says that they're doing this, doesn't mean they are.

Also, they can't restrict you from online play for something like this once the game has already been released.

LOL how can this be true? how can a videogame company sell something to you then tell you once it's your property what you can and can't do with it? honestly, what if they get better later on, how are they going to be able to join online again? get a new gamertag? lol


You really need to educate yourself on what a company can and can't do with products like this.

Basically, you're only buying the disc. They can do whatever the hell they want with what's on it. Same with phones... or Xbox's, or PS3's. They can brick them on you. You might own the solid mass that these objects consist of, but you don't own anything beyond that.

It helps to read the terms of use.

Actually. Yes they can. When you begin playing you are accepting their terms of agreement. You know that stuff that 99% of people don't ever read. Many of those terms typically have huge things about language, cheating, boosting, and offensive graphics. All things that can be reported while playing the game. Get enough, and they will lay the hammer down in an attempt to keep the peace of the community at large.
