EA Deleting Accounts Due To Piracy?

Hearing recent news from friends and forums it seems people using pirated versions of the game are not only getting banned from playing this game but EA are resetting peoples accounts.

so the scores are ok for people using a ps3 since there is no piracy on it

JsonHenry5565d ago

There is just as much piracy on the PS3. Just visit any torrent site and do a search.

jkoz5565d ago

Yeah, you're real informed. Tell me the last time you heard about people burning PS3 games? NEVER. It is right now IMPOSSIBLE to download and burn PS3 games. There are a few PS3 games online but you can't do jack with them. So, yeah. I'd love to see where there's any PS3 piracy.... at all.... please know what you're talking about before you comment.

If you can find and download a ps3 game it´s probably a virus or fake since the ps3 is not cracked...

Legion5564d ago

Little do people know. PS3 not cracked? I wonder what people are buying downtown then? I am in South Korea and to say that the PS3 is not cracked will get you a chuckle from the people that have their systems modded here.

haha hilarous, so people who download the gold edition but never bought the original and use the "backup" to go online are okay(at least as long as MS doesn't detect, if MS can't detect, EA can't either) but people who bought the original but downloaded the gold edition for weapons are screwed. Very Funny. Then there is a third class of people who are idiots: those who download and play both the gold and the normal editions.

Bad for the PC, good for consoles. I hear many developers now making games or have games in development for the consoles due to the tougher restrictions and less ease of pirating the copies. I have to say, I for one hate pirates and think they should all burn but I have to admit, if it brings developers to the consoles then by all means, keep it up.

ShiftyLookingCow5565d ago

piracy is only good for older consoles in developing countries. As otherwise the hardware wouldn't even be sold in those countries. For anything else its almost always bad.

Did you even read the article ???

Charmers5565d ago

@ SL1M DADDY you clearly didn't bother to read the story. If you had you would have read this "Also this is being reported for the 360 version only so far so my personal view is the piracy issue holds more ground than the borrowed issue." See where it says "ONLY FOR 360 version". Now don't you look like a silly billy for your comment.

JsonHenry5565d ago

Slim... dude, they didn't even make this game for the PC! Did you read the article at all?!

SL1M DADDY5565d ago

Had PC piracy on the brain this morning and all that before my 3 cups of coffee. My bad.

What they should be doing is taking care of the f-cking lag! Multiplayer is unplayable on the PS3 version.

Battlefield Legacy - Sunsetting Announcement

EA: "As we close in on 15 years since the release of Battlefield 1943, and Bad Company™ 1 & 2, we are announcing that their journey is coming to an end."

This reminds me... I have ME on my PS3 hdd. Never really played it, but it was free.

XiNatsuDragnel195d ago

Digital future ppl is good they say nope imo

Eidolon195d ago

And it still says nothing about being able to downloaded even when it's off the storefront, that's a huge ouchie for some who somehow still have it in their backlog...

Shane Kim195d ago

Dont make it an issue when it's not. If you haven't played it in 15 years, chances are you'll never play it.

isarai195d ago

That all digital future sure looks great!

Online game servers shut off eventually all the time. Doesn’t matter if you have the disc or not. Even if you have the disc, it’ll be just paperweight unless the game lets you connect directly to a friend or LAN play.

isarai195d ago (Edited 195d ago )

Read the article bro. They are delisting the games, including mirrors edge which is an offline game. Online servers i can understand, not being able to buy/download the games anymore? Completely separate issue, especially seeing as how some these games had lengthy sp campaigns and not just mp.
