    Yep. They're doing everything they can to just edge people as close as they can to giving over their cash for ransom. They'll probably wait the appropriate amount of time until they can't get a refund then re-enable everything more or less as it was before.

    Does Origin give refunds?

    I wasn't aware of this little tidbit. People have taken to emailing Disney about the predatory gamble-enabling against child players schemes that EA and other companies are dipping their toes swimming in.

    Earlier today, Electronic Arts chief executive officer Andrew Wilson had a phone call with The Walt Disney Company chief executive Bob Iger about Star Wars: Battlefront II, according to sources familiar with the situation. A few hours after that call, players are finding out that they can no longer make in-game purchases with real money. EA has confirmed that it is taking that feature down to address fan concerns just as the game is about to launch worldwide tomorrow. All of this comes after multiple days of outrage from fans who are upset that EA and developer DICE have implemented an online multiplayer system that gives an advantage to people who pay money.

    The crazy part is there are already people (of questionable ethical standards and financial intelligence/responsibility who are against this development and blaming people for complaining about nothing. They're all prepared to paybwhatever EA wants because they've swallowed the "games are expensive" pill. One person actually said to me that complainers of the monetization scheme wouldn't or shouldn't be paying for games and being agamer anyway if they weren't willing to pay for a $60 buy-in AND the microtransactions. Another person could not figure out why this was a good thing as we wouldn't get another game if they don't make enough money. Slaves to the evil. In the words of Salah from Raiders of the Lost Ark, "there is not one brain among them." I'm surprised we made a dent at all to be honest seeing as there are plenty of people apparently who would defend EA to the end.

    EA. It's in the Koolaid.
