Trusted providers crap is getting old. If M$ did it, people would cry Anti-Trust but it's OK when EA or Activision does it. Nothing left to PC gaming but greedy corps and huge gsps who are more worried about money then to stand up for what's right. The publishers are screwed without the gsps but the select few that get trusted provider status see it as less competition so they won't say no.
I've truely had enough of ranked and trusted provider shit end of story. I truely hope smaller gsps launch an anti-trust suit in the future.
Here is the email address to send one off and fight for this. [email protected]
I do believe it violates the Sherman Antitrust Act and the Federal Trade Commission Act.
Awefully funny that you should mention that MaydaX as that is exactly the complaint I forwarded to the DOJ this morning and I've planted the seed amongst a number of providers to start a consortium amongst us to retain counsel collectively and have this reversed. This is a clear cut case of a monopoly as only one company has the ability to offer this across not only multiple States but it is a world wide pandimonium as well.
However, in the end, all those that stated they wouldn't support mw2...look what they did. I sincerely doubt I'll be able to get anywhere and if there isn't enough interest to seriously pursue this interest from other Providers whether they are small or large (I doubt many of us will get along long enough to determine who is going to shell out what...) then I'll be dropping it at the end of next week. I'm willing to put $5,000 in the kitty to retain counsel and seek a legal injunction. I wonder how much that would impact this if it were able to suspend the PC market release based on that.
