    Two major controversies arose this week and they have raised questions regarding the rights of consumers who purchase video games and spend money on digital items within them. With MLB The Show 16, developer Sony San Diego banned a relatively large number of player accounts but some people may have found themselves banished unjustly. In FIFA the integrity of Ultimate Team mode has been brought into question, with high-value player cards not having played up to the level at which they wer...

    In following an update that included some massive shifts in ratings this week's changes in MLB The Show 16 don't come across quite as impactful. No players were bumped to reach the Gold or Diamond tiers, and only one player fell out of the latter and into the former.  (more…)...

    On Monday a fairly large number of accounts were banned in MLB The Show 16. Typically wiping out cheaters would be a good thing, creating a level playing field for those who are competing within the rules - but the situation wasn't nearly as simple at that. It quickly became apparent that something might be amiss with some people possibly being unjustifiably banned. After initially saying they would be not be reevaluating anyone's status, and being abrasive in their responses to any an...

    In recent years the Madden franchise has failed to properly represent the equipment that players wear on gameday. It's especially embarrassing when even the covers prominently feature equipment not found in the game. That's about to change with Madden NFL 17, as a lot of new licensed gear has been added and the equipment carrying over has been scanned in order to look much better.  (more…)...
  • Integrity of FIFA Ultimate Team brought into question with recent discoveries

    Ultimate Team in FIFA generates hundreds of millions in digital revenue for Electronic Arts every year. The mode is built on digital purchases of in-game currency that is then spent on player and item cards. That can be unsettling as, unlike most physical products, they can't necessarily be inspected and tested to ensure they function to their described specifications. This has now become a major issue as a serious flaw has been identified in FIFA's Ultimate Team that causes the most de...

    Just a few days ago Sony San Diego reiterated a policy that has always been effect for account suspensions and bans relating to MLB The Show 16. This of course is all completely reasonable. Basically every online video game has a similar TOS in place and it's just a matter of how violations are ultimately acted upon. Yesterday though a mass banning apparently took place as users took to social media and forums to express frustration and seek answers. They're finding plenty of the former...

    A new patch went out for EA Sports UFC 2 today that added three more fighters to the roster. That makes it 12 total that have been added post-release to what was an already immense roster when it first came out in March. The fighter most fans were hoping would make it in, with return of Brock Lesnar for his UFC 200 bout on July 9, unfortunately is not one of them. Josh Samman – Men’s Middleweight 88 Overall: 90 Stand-Up, 86 Clinch, 85 Ground Best Attributes: Choke Submission, Take...
