We will NOT tolerate people posting leaked information about a game which is not even out yet.

If anyone does this again, he/she will recieve an Infraction without any previous Warning.

I hope I was clear enough about this matter.

Is there a specific reason for that? I understand if a product is under NDA, but I read the general forum rules and if there is no NDA on a product, thus no actual contractual or signed agreement stating that information can't be shared.

Where is there anything, legally, or in the rules stating that information on the internet cannot be shared until a specific vendor date? I don't see how this could affect anyone here, or OCN negatively at all. This information is being posted on gaming forums, news sites, blogs, facebook, twitter~ etc.

Yet somehow it's not applicable here, on OCN, a group of relatively responsible technical experts?

Edit: Not trying to be rude at all, but http://www.overclock.net/view.php?pg=rulestos states nothing on this issue and I can't find anything that says this is an illegal topic.

The only source of this being an issue is from you, so is this a personal issue or one representative of the forums? Perhaps I'm missing something, but I just am not comfortable on forums where moderators try to squelch or censor free speech or communications for reasons that aren't illegal or harmful to the community... or even noted in its rules that I can see (once again, I may have missed something).

This is a gaming thread on a specific title, talked about by responsible individuals only reporting information that is already widely disseminated. This is hardly "leaked" information. So I am struggling to see the animosity being created here by the free speech of a few individuals on a thread monitored by close members who come here daily just to share amongst each other.

This is information that's being shared on the official EA forums and not being deleted by the moderators there, so why the threats of infraction?

Because I don't want to go into detail about the story or such.
I only inform about settings and menus.
Even if you finish downloading it today, you won't be able to play it, as you'll need to activate it online within the EA Servers, which is 25th for US and 27th for Europe, 28th for UK.

The user who posted information about the game, made multiple accounts within the Forum (Against the ToS), later on, he decided to discuss about a game which is not released to the public yet.

There's no legal way to get the game right now, any unofficial leaked information posted before the 25th will be removed.

If you have any more questions, feel free to PM me or any other Staff member.

Thank you,
kcuestag.

Thanks for clearing it to me.
Then it's similar to GT5 release. No online until release day.
But I was able to play it 7 days before pre-order release day

If BF3 has the same safety as F.E.A.R I'd just set the time for the 25th.

Indeed repost is a repost.

Same as me then. I just click on latest unread to see if I got someone replying to me then I go to the latest page.

Here's something completely unrelated but will lighten up all of us born in the 80's and to those that re born in early 90's as well.
un-embedded because it would only take extra space in this non-off topic thread.
