Misleading topic title.

Here is the last sentence of the article linked to:

"We'll keep you posted if the FTC reaps some results out of this, but according to Cinema Blend's own legal adviser, Brent Randell, it's unlikely that any follow through will take place. "
ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

Same sites legal adviser already said nothing is going to happen most likely.

Anyone getting excited to see MS getting in trouble over this is going to be majorly let down. We all know nothing is going to happen about this. Sorry.

"The guides are guidance to help advertisers and endorsers comply with federal advertising law," said Betsy Lordan, with the FTC Office of Public Affairs. "They are not legally enforceable, and there are no monetary penalties or penalties of any kind associated with them."

Well at least the TC didn't say they are being investigated like the last guy.
If LeBron shoots below 56 percent for the regular(obviously) season(2013-14) I'll close my account.

Passing Cinemablend stuff off as news without a caveat in the title should be illegal. TC may be investigated by NASA, the CDC, and FDIC regarding this egregious mislabeling of bad journalism.*


*But my lawyer, Three-Hands Benny, says this is unlikely at best, though he thinks the WWE may get involved.
