Welcome to the land of crazy - a Bioware poster has been banned from playing Dragon Age II by EA for saying nasty things about EA on the Bioware forums.|
The catch? He's banned from the single player game.
Yes, that's right, they are holding his purchased game hostage.
But restricting access to a singleplayer, offline game, even in an incidental situation like this, is a problem. EA's consolidation of online accounts can be a good thing in some cases (I appreciate the convenience of EA Sports games knowing who I am because of my gamertag), but in cases like this, it's also a cause for concern.Ouch.
Not to mention serving as an example, if ever one was needed, that in 2011 a video game is never truly and 100% your property.
