amazon actually gave people refunds, but I hope they're not eating the cost

Amazon's return policy is great, but I didn't know it covered digital goods as well. Their a great company.

its amazing how EA single handedly destroyed the release of a SINGLEPLAYER franchise with their total atrocious ways of marketing and milking
Mikeyy  +   787d ago
This right here, You cannot play a single player game... because of server issues..

Well Amazon will be a good place to buy EA products in the future, just in case..
ravinash  +   787d ago
If EA keep going with this DRM policy, Amazon will probably stop stocking their products.
Hopefully that will make EA wake up and take notice.

Good, stop selling this trash, when are we gamers going to stand up sand say that "Always Online DRM" is complete bullshit and we won't stand for it?

I'm talking to you Ubisoft, EA, and Activision/Blizzard

With your Assassins Creed PC, and Sim City and Diablo 3 bullshit.

...Screw you.

And people want console game to be 100% digital. this is just the beginning
ravinash  +   787d ago
Lets end it before it begins!

With EA's server issues, even a casual gamer who does not understand DRM is going to get pissed off with this and complain.
So if everyone complains, that will be enough for all the devs and publishers to take notice.

Saryk  +   787d ago
Amazon has the financial backing (and contract i bet) to do this!
