I don't get how anyone would need to be upset over this unless:
1. You don't have internet. (Honestly who doesn't have a active 24/7 connection)
2. You are probably trying to use virtual drives you cheap *******.
3. Change your hardware every week or something? Most people don't upgrade their computer's in years.
1. you'd be surprised at that... there are still lots of places with dodgy or less than active 24/7 internet, and many people seem to forget that, which is extremely annoying tbh.
2. what's wrong with virtual drives? they have perfectly legitimate uses, ie, browsing throw legally downloaded windows disks for whatever reason, ie reading the EULA or w/e.
3. what if someone has to RMA, or swap out a DVD drive, or something? it can happen, and preventing people from playing a game because of it is crazy...
Activating over the internet every 10 days? don't you think if the person bought it they will have it and not just decide to get a pirated copy as well??? and if it's single player why does it need to constantly activate? Here's a thought. Maybe there's more to people's lives than just one game? Honestly... these draconian measures are just getting ridiculous... much as i love bioshock, the DRM pissed me off to no end, and having to run that revoke tool before each format is annoying.
the only quote i can say came from someone in these forums...
Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his own brow?
No, says the man in Washington: it belongs to Securom
No, says the man in the Vatican: it belongs to Securom
No, says the man in Moscow: it belongs to Securom
excessive DRM is what is 'killing' PC gaming
