EA listens to Spore’s DRM critics
Posted by ballightning on September 15, 2008
After more then 2000 people voiced their anger at EA Games for putting the DRM on Spore, limiting to 3 installs, it seems the EA executives have woken up and on the up and coming C&C: Red Alert 3 you will no longer required to have the CD to play. In addition it will allow two more installs, the game will also require a one time online authentication. We hope this is the first step of many for EA to improve on their DRM service which some at Amazon are calling Draconian in nature.
Premier Executive Producer Chris Corry responded to Spore’s backlash and wrote on EA’s official support forums that Red Alert 3 would ease up on its copy protection.
In his closing paragraphs, Chris Corry said of the issue, “Red Alert 3 is shaping up to be a world-class RTS game that will give you many hours of enjoyment. I think it would be a shame if people decided to not play a great game simply because it came with DRM, but I understand that this is a very personal decision for many of you and I respect that. As you might imagine, I’m a lot less respectful of those people who take the position that they will illegally download a game simply because it has DRM.
