EA threatens to cancel Spore accounts

Eurogamer reports: "EA has threatened to ban the Spore accounts of members discussing DRM issues on the official game forum.

"SecuROM has been discussed and discussed so much and it causes arguments in threads," barked a moderator. "If you want to talk about DRM SecuROM then please use another fan site forum.

"Please do not continue to post these threads or you account may be at risk of banning, which in some cases would mean you would need to buy a new copy to play Spore."

the people running a forum are getting annoyed that a topic is getting out of hand, bringing down the overall quality of the forum and leaving no room for discussion, so they decide to threaten anyone that brings such issues up again with a possible ban?

wow...sounds like EVERY FORUM EVER!

Witty Comment3557d ago

every forum ever you mean every forum ever that makes you buy a new copy of a game for complaining about its issues, then yes. You're absolutely right.

See what I did there?

Far as i am concerned ban them all, and also make every game carry drm. Far as i can tell it is too early for the so called people buying the game to be whining about 3 installs. Surely they haven't had to reformat 3 times since the game has been released last month. It is either a) They are trying to install it on multiple machines or b) or people are stealing the game.
