I'd still say that most people don't read the full TOS and you're very much the exception to the rule so his point is still valid.

Sounds legit. I would dread buying new games if this was me.

They said, "We can permanently deactivate..." etc. It doesn't mean they will but they have to choice to do so. The way the guy phrased his question warrants the response of what can be done if he doesn't want to accept the terms.

This is a big part of why I think GOG.com is such a consumer friendly model. Once you download your game installer it is yours and no one can take it away from you or disable your access to it in anyway. I've purchased about 40 games from them, the only reason I don't buy more is that a lot of large publishers are still clinging to DRM as a solution to piracy when of course it is the opposite of a solution.

QFT.

I stated this in a similar thread, but I am seriously thinking twice before I drop more money towards Steam. My purchases for this month have been roughly zero. They have a lot of my cash now and I must now "Pray that they don't alter the deal any further." --Darth Vader.

GOG on the other hand has been making me pretty poor lately. Especially the FPS sale they had this past weekend. Mmmmm.... Blood 2. "How do you like your flesh cooked?"
