It seems like no matter what the game, you can always find a cheat. Dead Space 3 for instance has an in-game exploit that allows people to get in-game items without having to pay for them.
This could affect EA’s bottom line, since they have introduced a system that will charge users cash for additional equipment. Let’s face it, some people don’t like this model anyway. Buying the game itself costs us enough.
EA is working on an update to fix things though, so they can get their share of money. If they don’t fix it soon, others will get mad because they paid, while others cheated. EA has put themselves into a bad situation.
