legality? i'd have to imagine all those people will get refunds otherwise they'd have a pretty decent chance for a class action suit. EA really can't be that stupid... can they?
Achievements are not for the meek, it is better to forfeit inheritance of the earth so that the mighty may look upon my gamerscore, and despair. Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve! Men who carve out entire galaxies with nothing more than nimble cheetos-dusted fingers and their wits, and in our leisurely twilight days we shall sit by softly flickering fires with our descendants recounting the tales of these unimaginable glories.
Well as Polygon reports EA has responded to the situation, issuing the following statement:
"Rock Band for iOS will remain live – the in-app message users received yesterday was sent in error."
"We apologize for the confusion this caused. We're working to clarify the issue that caused the error and will share additional information as soon as possible."
It seems highly dubious that this whole thing could have been one big accident, especially since the iOS Rock Band is listed on an EA support page as having its connected features discontinued after May 28th, and a comment on our previous post points to an EA representative confirming in a help topic on EA's website that the game would no longer work after May 31st, but that topic has since been deleted. Perhaps their intention all along was to drop support for the online features, and the strongly worded “no longer playable on your device” message was the mistake. Either way, this reeks of damage control rather than an actual mistake.
