This is great, I love that the gaming communitty has refused to just accept the heavy handed brute force of a major publisher. I am proud of my fellow gamers that they managed to organize a consumer protest and humiliate the largest publisher on the planet on one of the greatest flagship launches. As an industry professional it gives me great comfort and hope that gamers are willing and able to strike back at publishers who deliver low quality games with intrucive DRMs. The internet is a great liberator and vehicle for democracy. For those who complain that these "pirates" are hurting the developer, they are wrong. This only hurts EA the publisher, who gets the lions share of the profits from the game. The developers have already been paid, so they dont lose a dime. Last time I checked EA (or any developer) doesnt have a profit sharing scheme (a serious one anyways). I personally dont believe that 1 pirated copy = 1 lost sale. That is pure fantasy.
