A submitter to Reddit was prompted with the following message when opening Electronic Arts’ Rock Band on his iPhone today:
It seems as though EA wants to turn off the access to Rock Band as of May 31st, which is a pretty crappy thing to do to your paying customers. What is worse about this scenario is that in typical EA scamming fashion the game is still available to purchase for a whopping 4.99 on the App Store and nowhere at the time of writing does it indicate that the purchase will be null and void in less than a month.
We have to continue to get the word out on this. Stop buying EA software. Everyone that has bought an EA game on iOS should go and review it at a 1 star with a full description of why. Everyone should try to get a refund for Rock Band, let Apple know why.
Email Tim Cook: email@example.com and let him know that this will not be tolerated. Any applications that expire should be listed as a subscription – a functionality that Apple now provides for magazines and newspapers, etc.
Spam EA’s twitter account for mobile: @EAMobile
I would say visit EA’s mobile support page: http://support.eamobile.com/ but currently it just says ”This site has been disabled for the time being.” ?_?
