he says that some of the realistic guns in games like battle field and CoD are actually licensed by the gun manufactures, since they're using the likeness and name of the company's trademarks.

therefore, when you buy a game that has these virtual guns, by extension, you are giving money to gun makers and this could create an ethical dilemma for people who don't like guns in real life but have no qualms about shooting digital people in the face with the super realistic virtual guns.

Its nice of him to point this out for people who care.... although, I find it interesting that there are people who like shooting fake guns yet are so adverse to real guns that they don't want manufactures to profit.  Like, if you're that anti-gun why do you play gun-based video games?  And on the flip side, if you can understand the fun of shooting guns in video game, can't you maybe understand why people like to own and shoot them IRL?

I didn't see that as his point.  He himself said he doesn't like guns but doesn't care if someone else has them (I think I'm remembering his wording correctly).  I don't think most people that play these types of games have problems with guns in general.  I think there are higher numbers of people that take issue with ultimately funding other things unintentionally, which is what his point was.

I'm shocked they have to actually pay licensing fees for historical accuracy.

I'm not. I'm sure car makers are involved in the way their vehicles are depicted in video games, why not other items?
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Because its fair use. EA doesn't pay manufacturers to use real guns in their games.

As the Reuters story notes, EA considers the use of authentic weaponry to be a fair use of gun makers' trademarks. "We're telling a story and we have a point of view," EA President of Labels Frank Gibeau told Reuters. "A book doesn't pay for saying the word 'Colt,' for example."

Looks sort of fun, but I'm going to hold off for a bit.  I want to see if it fades like Hardline and Battlefront before diving in.  I like the modern shooters (BF3/4) and I'm not thrilled about the BF1 setting.

Yes, I saw the horses.  I've been watching videos for months and one of the channels that I subscribe to on YouTube has been live streaming gameplay every day for a week.
