I'm picking this game up on the 22nd anyway!
I can't see how they could possibly justify a ban. PS3 hasn't been cracked so its not a copy and its not your fault someone in EB ****ed up.

Really EA actually give a **** about stuff like that? Maybe they should concentrate on getting rid of lag/cheaters/bugs on their other online game servers
