promoting? no. encouraging? yes. And not just with increasing sales prices...*cough* origin *cough*.
well of course they're not directly promoting it, but with how piracy was previously seen in India they might as well. I'm wondering if they simply looked at their sales demographics and concluded that the people who could afford expensive games would make them more money than the people who'd be waiting for discounts, but I can't imagine that. I pulled up a list of living costs in India http://www.numbeo.com/cost-... putting game prices into that perspective makes the pricing choice outrageous
EA's tagline should be - "Happily making you pay us more money each time." On second thought, it probably already is.
I can see the board members in front of me...
Wow EA will do anything for extra cash in their pocket :/ damn shame i have to be addicted to them greedy basterds games lol
Only on Orgine is another word for piracy.
well, it looks like thepiratebay will receive lots of web traffic from india xDD
There's really nothing wrong with piracy. Most people do it to demo out a game if there's no actual demo. I do it once in a while just to see how good the game is before I buy. Its better than buying a game on PC, hating it and not being able to return it.
