SimCity - A Risky Deal
Are you desperate to try out the new SimCity beta? Then be sure to take your role as a beta tester seriously. Otherwise, as per EA EULA, you can be banned from using any other EA game for not doing your civic duty of reporting a bug. That's a sweet trade of isn't it?
"It is understood and agreed that, as part of your participation in the Beta Program, it is your responsibility to report all known bugs, abuse of 'bugs', 'undocumented features' or other defects and problems related to the Game and Beta Software to EA as soon as they are found ('Bugs'). If you know about a Bug or have heard about a Bug and fail to report the Bug to EA, we reserve the right to treat you no differently from someone who abuses the Bug. You acknowledge that EA reserve the right to lock anyone caught abusing a Bug out of all EA products."
This is not the first time EA get into such controversy over its EULA either, last time it was for banning people who were naughty on the forums. But maybe this is just another way EA marketing department decided to get more publicity? Share your thoughts down below.
