EA forbids class action suits in new Origin TOS

EA forbids class action suits in new Origin TOS photo



It seems that Sony isn't the only corporation hopping aboard the "don't sue us" bandwagon. Electronic Arts has also been inspired by AT&T's recent shenanigans, quietly adding a clause that forbids Origin users from joining class action suits. 

It's worth noting that the publisher actually changed its terms of service before Sony did, so it seems inspired by the same AT&T source rather than the PS3 platform holder. That's EA for you -- providing innovations for the game industry in all the wrong ways. 

With both Sony and EA welcoming this new scheme with open arms, it would appear that we have a hot new craze in the making. Of course, it's hardly surprising that EA would be all over this, especially as it seems dedicated to making Origin the most dickish entity in the universe, that it might please The Dick Gods in their dickwisdom. 

Seriously, EA has to be doing all this on purpose, right?
