RumorTT: EA to ease fans' problems with BF4 with free DLC

It looks like EA could be fanning gamers' rage with this latest rumor: free Battlefield 4 DLC. The DLC would be given out to those who already own the game, but the problem is, what about people like myself, who have already purchased Premium, which includes all of the DLC.

Considering DICE has reportedly stopped working on the DLC for Battlefield 4 until the game is working, this comes at a bad time for EA. The company is battling lawsuits over the first-person shooter, so it will not be a great Christmas for EA by any measure.

Chinese World of Warcraft hackers sentenced to two years in prison

Hacking has always been a scar on the PC gaming community, and with the rise of the MMORPG genera it has become more of a problem than ever before.

The group set up a small shop and would also purchase stolen accounts for small sums and then sell the high-value items in online auctions. The group managed to make more than $10,000 before being caught by Chinese officials. Five of the groups members were caught, and found guilty of hacking. Eventually nine out of the ten involved were caught and convicted. Eight were sentenced to two years in prison and fined $1,000, while the leader was handed down two years in prison and an $8,000 fine.
