EA forbids class action suits in new Origin TOS

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?

If you loved the '90s more, you'd have made Seinfeld's apartment in The Sims 4

Anyone that can play bass guitar inevitably always gets asked the question "Can you play the Seinfeld theme?" (Duh, obviously.) That's probably why they bought a bass in the first place -- to lay down the groove to the i...more

Madden 15 is an extra scummy ripoff on PS3 and 360

EA usually saves its most blatant hack jobs for consoles where it's less likely to draw ire.  FIFA 14 on Vita was a reskin of FIFA 13 on Vita which was a reskin of FIFA Soccer. Before you snark about "aren't al...more
