"You have to think about the rising cost of maintaining and updating games these days". Oh please. Gamers have been reading so many articles about the woes of the poor little game developers that they've started to believe them. Major developers throw words around like dramatic newspaper headlines describing SOARING and SKYROCKETING costs. It always amuses me the way people just assume prices just suddenly go up 2000% or something overnight. Developers both big and small generally do just fine, especially if they get a good game together. Look at all the bonuses you hear about at Blizzard and the disgustingly lucrative contracts at Infinity Ward. Blizzard is obviously saying "sink your money into our stuff or we'll take a huge chunk of it anyway". On that note, I learned my lessons about micro-transactions on Facebook. I realized i was paying real money for items in mini-games and had nothing to show for it except a rising credit card debt. Those micro-transactions add up fast and it's for something temporary at best. Truth: If you buy that stuff you will still never be the best, the most powerful, or w/e. There will always be another upgrade or expansion or new end-game gear, like WoW. How many of you are still paying off debt for items in games you don't play anymore or a game that got canceled? Never again.

I'm surprised to see people blaming Obama and the Democrats. I'm aware Democrats love Big Government and so it's natural to assume this is completely their doing. And i'm definitely surprised to see Republicans in gov't against the bill (Issa (R) who is quoted is currently trying to destroy the post office and privatize it). This is more of a "protect business" bill and it's sponsored by a Republican naturally..a Texas one *facepalm* (scroll up to that part your eyes just sorta skimmed over, see that 'R' by the guy's name?) and Republicans are ALL about supporting business, in the positive and the negative. So this is more like Big Business and Big Government working together for a mutually attractive idea. Dems get more big government, and Repubs get to protect their rich business boys' interests.
