Disgusting. If I hadn’t already written off Blizzard I’d do it now.

This is type of thing is a real possibility with Netease investing in Bungie’s next game. I hope it doesn’t become hard for Bungie and other developers to do the right thing in the future.


I love how capitalism is willing to toe the line for authoritarian communists if there is $$$ at stake

Capitalism isn't a person with a will--but yes, the model can be corrupted just like socialism or communism (this isn't the place to argue which system is more susceptible to corruption).

This is an area where I agree with Cody. If you don't like a business's practices, don't do business with them. I admit I don't always practice what I preach. I'd love to find a competitive alternative to Google Fiber.
