But you're ASSUMING BioWare goes for the IT as their saving throw and You. Do. Not. Know! that they will! And yes, there are people who buy games from them that can't or won't get online to either play the wretched MP or download stuff like, say, a piece of DLC that revises the ending. So you're saying it's okay if they're screwed over? We're not assuming, they DID state that there would be no new gameplay in the Extended Cut. If that Bioware PR drone is saying stuff to the contrary it's because she's misdirecting us or is an idiot that didn't read the official statement behind the Extended Cut: http://blog.bioware.com/2012/04/05/mass-effect-3-extended-cut/ http://investor.ea.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=662095 "Additional cinematic sequences and epilogues scenes" =/= gameplay!
