Well I did it. I signed up for Fileplanets The Matrix Online Closed Beta

The thing that pissed me off the most is that half way threw creating an account; Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. required a credit card number. Even thought they say right up in bright red letter that they will not charge my card. So what do they need it for? Is this like some porn sight that they only use your card for 'age verification' wink wink. Nothing on the page to give me any hint, so I searched the only link, the dreaded Terms of Uses page! Oh good lord, can they get any drier? Basically you have no rights, WB is god! OK, finally under the Fee-Based Services part I find out what is up with the credit card. "Fee-based services", so what is that going to be? Will there be virtual prostitutes, or flashers? I read in a game mag, that you will be able to 'upload' programs into your characters, like Trinity did for the chopper. So are they going to charge for the super level 25 ninja uploads? I do not know, but I guess I best be careful, and watch my statement.

I cannot say anything about the game yet, I have not downloaded it and they made me swear with 5 'I agree' check boxes to that affect. Atleast untill it is released.
