True, but the problem was that lot's of people was playing the game outside of North America, even before it was released outside North America.

I currently run Eclipse under Linux, and it's fast and well behaved, unlike under Mac OS X where it is slow as hell. (When people complain about Eclipse performance, they mostly are complaining about it on Mac OS X)

The credit card company, only get the total transaction amount and the shop which should get the money.

The shop only get a "Transaction accepted" but they don't get any information about the credit card used. Other then sometimes the last 4 digits, but you can't trace with that.
