EA/Origin is not the only fraudulent company that instead of dollars, euros, yens or other real currencies you have to convert real money to their con job currency for certain purchases.
Currently no country had a lawsuit or law sentence that would penalize the fraud. The country I'm expecting it to happen soon is - Germany. Every now and then with a law or a cease&desist note Germany makes the life of those con artists miserable.
MS is dropping their MS Points. You can buy with real money now. I hear it might take Bitcoin soon or whatever those Poker sites gave you in lieu of winnings.
