EA turns off access to iOS Rock Band

EA turns off access to iOS Rock Band

UPDATE: Apparently this is all just a big elaborate mistake… 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...

I am preparing to move my current Windows 7 installation from my hard disk to a solid state drive as the last step in my recent PC upgrade build.

Kingdoms of Amalur – Online Pass Nonsense

Online passes are a terrible idea.  By forcing the paid-for product to be a worse investment than the pirated copy game publishers are pushing more customers to forgo paying to jump through multiple hoops to play their games and just download it.  By trying to make some money off the used game market the publishers are coming across as greedy and archaic.
