Petition against EA after new DISASTER

#1Jx1010Posted 3/8/2013 1:30:32 AM(edited)
Theres an online petition against EA video game company because of this feature that requires you to ''always'' be online to be able to play.

Some PS3 games have this feature... like the new Tomb Raider digital version.

I don't agree with EA doing it, but it's a pretty stupid thing to be making a petition about. Organizing a giant boycott would be a lot more effective..assuming you could get the people to actually follow through.

Tomb Raider isn't persistent online.

Thanks to game sharing and multiple consoles having the one account, they need a way to prevent people sharing their game instead of buying it.

It's not the same as persistent online.

People are really acting ridiculous over the SimCity thing....I've never played a single large scale online PC game without a rough launch.

Blizzard games have the same problem, but no one petitions them. I should know, I owned Diablo 2 & 3 and both launches were huge messes.

I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.
