    Saw this article and thought it was an interesting read:

    http://www.gamerevolution.com/news/...aring-too-much-to-ea-for-moh-warfighter-15971

    Leaking information in a way that hardly anybody would be able to determine from the game's fiction has practically ended their careers as SEALs. Worth it for a game that isn't even well reviewed? Doubtful.

    I hope they got paid really well for their consulting gig, because they're losing out much more in the long run. It actually makes me want to play the game though, to see what career-ending details they could have let loose.

    Probably advertising.
    I'm guessing EA can afford to set this whole thing up for publicity.

    Yeah, I guess that's possible, especially since nobody is named in the article, but I just wasn't looking at it cynically enough. Really though, having known tons of military members and practices, this is the kind of thing that can be validated and the punishment makes sense. I wouldn't have expected any actual man in charge to bring down any punishments, even for cash or make believe.
