Well, now EA wants to convert to making games that have no ‘offline’ component, no true singleplayer mode. I have to wonder what’s up with this? First Blizzard with Starcraft II, and now EA wants to make online games. Yes I hear the ‘It allows us to reduce piracy’ argument, but it can lock a lot of paying customers out of the game that they bought.
I’m not fond of this type of stuff. What if you have no internet connection, or a bad connection? People using dial-up, and satellite are going to be unable to play any game of that type, at least it wouldn’t be too fun.
In the end of the day, I believe that the best way to stop piracy is to sell the game for a good price (Not $60.00+) Don’t lock people out from the game, the Pirates will remove that part anyways, so it doesn’t stop them.
