It still doesn't make name calling okay. Take that garbage elsewhere.

Again this concerns console users, people are jumping on the hate wagon for no reason, since pc gamers pay for their own servers. Also PC games have been cd key locked for years and I dont even think anybody sells used pc games. It seems when bf3 pops up or any big game people just look for an excuse to hate without reading the whole article.
If they are still going to offer private servers, then I am fine with that. I, and many others, detest the way corporate servers are ran. Or the lack of anyone to admin them, more to the point. If they renig on what they promised, which the article seems to indicate they may, that will be a problem.

I don't see where you figure that I'm complaining about them locking the key on consoles. I said that it was a good thing.

Ugh, the beta deal doesn't appear to work in South Africa. I get redirected to the EA South Africa page, where you get the maps and physical warfare pack, but no beta access.

SUCKS.
Another reason why Steam is better. None of this regional crap.

Didn't you just call people childish and wannabe gamers in the red orchestra 2 thread for stating the graphics dont look good compared to current games and there is no open beta to test it out, both of which are true?

There are people who are saying they will torrent the game in this thread even though they are not effected by this console centric issue at all. In any case torrenting is bad and against the TOS. But you choose to tell me to take their garbage elsewhere and not them?

Battlefield tying your hands behind your back? Wait a second, I am pretty sure that I can't unload my copy of CoD MW2 to some unlucky person for money either and have them expect to be able to play multiplayer with the same key.

And before you make this about consoles, you mentioned torrenting the game (which is a ToS violation on OCN, discussing piracy and specifically, your intention to pirate this game, OH, and spending a lot of time bashing BF3 in every thread on a forum where you claim the members are "dumb monkeys"), so you were obviously talking about the PC version.

And let's not talk about greed. Its obvious you know nothing about the CoD franchise or what the word "greed" means, cause Bobby Kotick is at the head of Activision, and that man himself is the very definition of "greed." $15 map packs for like 4-5 maps? Yeah, totally not greedy. Unless Activision is claiming that the 4-5 maps are equivalent to 25% of the core game's content - and if that's the case, I pity the people who fall into that trap.
At least one person in this thread is capable of reading comprehension

I cant think of any PC game that allows u to unload your used copy on someone else, it has been like this for years. This issue only concerns consoles

You buy a used car. Okay, you still have to pay taxes on it, still have to pay for registration, maintenance, gas, etc. etc. etc. When a used copy of a game goes for sale, developers never saw any money. Not to mention, game prices have stayed the same for the last 20+ years while inflation, cost of living and business operations have all gone WAY up.

Cry more that a company would like a LITTLE compensation for their operational overhead. You can definitely buy the game used and not pay the fee, you just can't play it online and use their stats system and dedicated servers.
Doesn't matter if a car is entertainment. You paid cash for it and you own that.

Fine by me. It's already like that in PC anyway.

Not really, you start loading up lots of new entries and you run into trouble. It's not so much the cost per slot, it's the affect the size has on your architecture. For example, at work, we hold millions of user details. The impact of size is that our databases (which now run on solid state drives) slow down as read time, query times etc... drastically reduce. On average, we split 1 database a month into two, not because they are full, but because the speed has dropped to a level considered unsuitable. The cost of splitting a database (staffing, new hardware, testing, backup systems, drawing up WCS plans, contingency plans, future development plans) is huge! It's not something to be taken lightly!

Secondly, we don't know what they are holding. In addition to your name, key, details etc... they may be holding attributes such as purchase history for in store weapons/skins, stats, favourite servers... and so on. I won't pretend to know DICE/EA's information architecture or how they split data, but to say "it's just a few additional entries" is, in my opinion, wrong.

I first read "I don't care, PC games have resale value for over a decade."
