Warhammer: "Rant"icle #5: MMO Spyware… Watch out!

"Rant"icle #5: MMO Spyware… Watch out!

Another rant by Ratboy was needed in this dark time. So here it is! Today's "rant"icle talks about the recent stir caused by EA's Battlefield 2142 and its use of in-game advertising. Ratboy writes about his fears that one day MMO's might endure the same fate... oh wait "/pizza".

There’s been a whole crazy discussion about the recent insinuation that Battlefield 2142 has spyware built into their game. Yes I know, you’re immediate reaction is to shout out “ZOMG! I needs my tin foil hat to stop the Government from spying on me over the internets through the games.”, but in reality this entire recent debacle has been blown out of proportion

Read more of what Ratboy has to say. Add your thoughts in the Ten Ton Hammer Forums. We've made a thread just for this topic!
