@robo: If you think this decision was made in a vacuum, your head must be in one. With "the national conversation about guns" playing out on TV and in DC plenty of NRA lobbyists have been trying to blame video games. By giving money to gun companies publishers are funding the very people attacking their business interests in Congress and in the court of public opinion. It's like if your house is on fire and you're buying gasoline to pour on it.
Shit is borked. Worked fine last night and then I try to play today and the patch number on the multiplayer main menu reverted to 19.0.-1 and I can't connect to multiplayer. Google has turned up no fix.
