    Actual knowledge, nah.. but its the same thing as the mobile phone companies do, what do you think why they give you cash if you give them your old mobile? exactly, they earn more that way as otherwise you might pass it on to someone instead of that person buying a new one as well.

    Although it's not Spore, EA have banned someone from C&C3 / KW for allegedly being 'underage' despite being over the required age limit. His name is -XeoNeQ- and from what I can tell is a 'pro' gamer as in finished second in the qualifying stages of the ladder. A mod has then said in response to his demanding an explanation on the official forums:

    His thread on the EA forums: http://forums.ea.com/mboards/thread.jspa?threadID=444320&start=0&tstart=0

    Don't want to politicize bit-tech but from a concerned gamer I don't want EA to have the power to ban us for 'technical' breaches i.e. age - it should be a flagrant misuse i.e. posting racist / porn / crap on the game chat lobbies or just down and out cheating. We pay our £17.99 (how much KW cost me anyway) to get to play the game, that should give us as gamers a right to play the game unless there is something major. Even then I think it's shakey ground to ban someone permenently even for cheating when they have paid full retail price... (although I can appreciate the need definately!)

    True. Except I seem to recall one game that was able to be pirated but not completely. That game is Operation Flashpoint. People pirated it but it had some sort of built in thing (which seemed to be unremovable) that detected if the game was pirated and slowly over time the AI would get harder and harder and your player got suckier and suckier until it was impossible to play. Pretty neat actually. Besides that there is no such as uncrackable.

    I think all the companies should quit with this stupid DRM and other BS. Just makes people want to pirate games even more.
