LET ME BE CLEAR: ANY TALK OF SUCH SPOILERS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED IN THIS THREAD.

Notice how the Mass Effect 3 Beta Leak thread is magically gone? That's because Microsoft has sent GAF a C&D over the heavy story spoilers found on the site.



Basically confirming that what was leaked was actually what happens...

Do... do they really think this will help... anything, like, at all?

In the first place. "Posting spoilers" isn't exactly illegal in any way.

Lol.

That bad, huh, Bioware?

Hope some stuff gets changed from the script before release.

Kinda wanna see the C&D letter tho, and if it really holds any relevance/weight.

I shouldn't have posted some spoilers from that Russian site. Sorry, If I caused some issues. I wasn't the only one posting them though.

I was wondering what happened to that thread. Pretty bad show on Bioware's part trying to censor an independent forum just because of their and Microsofts cock up. I still can't believe Bioware were stupid enough to trust MS with such critical information. I won't even trust MS with my damn credit card info never mind the entire plot to a multi million dollar franchise.

Seriously, mods. Put the thread back. There is literally no legal grounding for Bioware suing over it.

I'm curious to know if they are even within their legal rights to do this kind of thing.

But surely, the damage has already been done.

Also who cares? I don't understand anyone minimally interested on the series would want to see those spoilers.

Later that day!
