    Seen it before, you have to pay for it. I bet once you pay there are other hidden charges, like a dialer, no doubt.

    Seems that way. I saw it about a month ago, I doubt if they get enough revenue to pay the companies that they sell movies for example.

    All it takes is one signing up and 20 friends also using his/her pass if not more people.

    It don't look kosher.

    Sims 2 isn't out yet is it?
    Or is it over state side?

    Doom3 for xbox is on there.
    It has to be a scam - be careful what you install from that site.
    I doubt, obviously, that it has these files so isn't breaking any laws other than false advertising as I also doubt its affiliation with Yahoo.

    Don't install anything it prompts you to.

    When they say affiliation they mean they have paid for advertising space. I.E. "as seen on Yahoo!!"

    Also the FAQ doesn't cover any legal questions.
