    Default EA Wont Be Paying For Real Guns In Video Games Anymore



    A report on Reuters says that following recent events like the Newtown school shooting, and the controversy over the companys relationship with arms manufacturers, Electronic Arts has made the decision to stop paying for the rights to use real weapons in its video games. But its still going to use them anyway.

    Just like it did when Bell launched legal action in 2012 over Battlefields use of helicopter designs, EA tells Reuters that, despite an intent to copy the designs and even name of famous firearms, it will no longer be paying for that privilege, believing it has a constitutional right under the tenets of free speech to use trademarks without permission.

    While the Medal of honour franchise has been put to bed, EA still plans to release an entry in the Battlefield series which features contemporary military hardware later this year.

    Not sure how this will affect Battlefield but EA should expect lawsuits.

    Eventually they could branch off into something more fictional, therefore allowing more possibilites with environments, vehicles, etc. and not being limited by modern weapons.

    They should focus on creating their own guns, which may cause a variety of guns and later on even vehicles and add-ons.
    Anything is possible :/

    I like the real ones better then the fakes. Or at least spin-offs of real guns.

    Eh, does it really matter if fictional or real guns are used?

    I like the real guns better, but they get old after a while.
