I wonder how long it'll be before someone makes DVD/blue-ray disks that require a net connection so they can phone home before you can play them.

Sony have already put forward a patent that's very close to this...

http://www.freepaten...13/0007892.html

Which to be fair isn't nearly as bad as Microsofts patent that uses facial recognition, with the cameras on the next gen Kinect, to check users have the relevant content licenses/ and or meet the minimum age limits of the content about to be viewed.

And on that bombshell i'll leave you all for another 6 months :P

edit - just seen the last line of your signature Phil. You might want to amend it :P

Well spotted that man.

I can actually see the benefits of a facial recognition parental control system tbh.

Since they amended their T&C's I changed my mind. Got ME3 free as well for my "trouble" on SimCity (not that I've had any :P)

SimCity 5 for under 20 here

Works fine, but you may want to create a new Origin account in case EA have a hissy with you for circumventing regional pricing differences.
