You know full well that anything that's dependent on a subscription service will no longer be usable if you cancel or the service is shut off. The majority of us who have the service are aware of this. The only people who are going to flop around and raise a stink are the ones who are just trying to get other people worked up over it.
The ethical thing they would do is unlock all the games people have downloaded and also the games from their download list and let it be.
Except they can't do that and it's not "ethical" to do at all, letting people keep them even after their subscription is up would mean they'd be giving away a game that they have no legal rights to just hand out to random people. How is giving away something that's not yours ethical?
