So, anyone been paying attention to the RealID flap? Yeah, okay, I'm convinced now. I'm also somewhat concerned, because while I don't play WoW and don't intend to, I will be playing SC2, and it now seems entirely possible that these mother****ers are going to make telling people my real name a, um, requirement. At which point I guess I'll stop playing.
Because it seems likely we're only seeing the first steps in what is an attempt to get in on Facebook's action. An attempt to get the Farmville crowd into WoW, and, well, Activision as a whole. At this point I'm expecting WoW, MW3, SC2 and so on to all use RealID in an integrated network.
