Sincerely Fuck EA,Activision,Bethesda, and their greedy fuck CEOs, i wouldn't consider myself a Socialist my any means but regulation needs to be clamped down upon these companies before Gaming goes to 100% shit.

another example, just demonstrating why these "mechanics" arnt suitable for all audiences.

fairplay on nintendo for refunding the money though, so respect for that.

Convo with Nintendo:

Nintendo: Wow that's rather unfortunate, we do apologize for this inconvenience and will refund you at the earliest time possible.

Convo with EA:

EA: Wow....that sucks.

Customer: So.........are you going to do something about this? Like maybe refund us our life savings?

EA: Maybe, maybe fuck you (insert #thuglife meme and random gangsta rap song)

Its actually pretty scary stuff and pretty low on EAs part to generally accept this kind of thing.

I mean imagine being a parent and going to pay the rent for your family and finding that your bank account has been been cleaned out because your son / daughter bought £500 worth of stuff on fifa because they have no concept of what money is? you would be destroyed........the worst thing about it is that EA is quite happy to market this shit at those people who have no idea what money is. They don't care.

honestly, the sooner this shit falls under gambling regulations the better. Its out of hand and downright scummy.

Itís actually pretty damning that a console publisher has more integrity than a game publisher, fucking hell man.

specially nintendo who are really strict and a lot of the time very unfair on people using their content. Nintendo really arnt the most friendliest of companies either and yet they have still demonstrated much higher morals in this instance.
