EA Updates ToS To Forbid Class Action Lawsuits

Loud Mouthed Gamers: Well after seeing what Sony had done with their Terms of Service, Electronic Arts decided they had nothing to lose and everything to gain by updating theirs as well.

Argh another one of you guys. Is a good name hard to find/think of these days.

Moving on who didn't see this coming? First ATT(yes they was first not Sony). Then Sony and now EA, surprise Activision haven't done it yet or even Capcom.

So I can't sue because I'm playing your game, and using your service. On top of that if I download Origin, you can look in my computer (As if other programs aren't doing that already). It seems "Big Brother"'s plan is to take the internet and it's gamers by surprise.

Oh wow!! Just freaking wow. Thanx alot SONY. Look, I don't have any plans whatsoever to sue any game company but I do not like having my rights infringed upon either.
Doesn't matter, only EA related product I plan on buying is Mass Effect 3. Their douche baggery concerning CoD and Forza 4(Porche) has left an awful taste in my mouth.
They are lucky I'm totally in love with ME series

its just a beta the final product will be even better i have been able to play but im not excited by it but i will be on october 25th when i know my progression will save my stats will save and more servers will be opened up

By that standard, no other game should have server issues then, regardless of location, connection type, device, or for that matter people ordering various games from a variety of shops/stores that they don't have entire information for.
