Battlefield 2142 Sells Out!
The creators of Battlefield 2142 have decided to allow spyware to come along with the installation package that monitors your online habbits so that they can better advertise to you IN-GAME.

Now, do they tell you this before you buy it. No! they put it inside the box so even if you decide not to install it you can't return it b/c the seal is broken.

So what you're saying is that Electronic Arts, the largest entertainment software company in the world, a company that made two billion dollars in profit last year alone... "sold out"?! Sold out from what?

1942 WAS WAY BETTER THAN BATTLEFIELD 2 AND IT CRASHED ABOUT 100X LESS THAN BATTLEFIELD TWO DID. EA OWNS DICE NOW SO THEY'RE PROBABLY GONNA SH*T ALL OVER THE SERIES AND MIGHT RELEASE A PATCH FOR IT THAT MAKES THE GAME CRASH MORE FOR 2142 LIEK THEY DID IN 2

I'm leaving to go pick that game game up from Gamespot in about an hour and I'm already pissed off at them. Battlefield is a VERY good game, but GOD do i hate EA and the sh*t they do. I tihnk I'm going to f*cking call them to let them know what i think. They're already getting $50 out of me, yet they just have to milk it for more >:(

Maximize profits, no time and moneyfixing bugs, sell adverisements, sell new model packs as "expansion packs" and force you to get the new game. EA is sooo cool.

yes reason its not illegal is that 1) it isnt spyware, 2) it doesnt record anything, just how long u keep the ads on your screen and logs that in ur EA, note that, ONLINE profile, just like your stats, gametime, awards etc and ur ip, any idiot can trace ur ip, for ur location, eg english people get english adverts and polish, hey ;), people get polish adverts and 3) and what if they install spyware? doesnt bother me, anything harmful gets flushed out in teh next hitman pro sweep nywys
