WARNING: Dead Space 2 DRM Install limit - Page 3

post #21 of 95
I don't know how I feel about drms now. I might just let this one slide, because it isn't as intrusive as say ubisofts drm.

We might have to just suck it up and accept less-intrusive drms. Seems pretty redundant on steam though...

Yes you can "de-authorize" installs but then you don't always have the ability to run the de-activate program. If you reformat you are screwed. If you install on a friends comp, or on another comp and forget about it you loose that install. I am not telling you not to buy the game, but you should all be aware of this DRM. Personally I do not plan to ever buy this game for PC.

I had to deal with this DRM with Crysis after having the game on steam for over 2 years not knowing I had to de-authorise I was hit with a message saying "you have run out of installs, please buy a new copy." I had to call EA and get them to give me more installs. The guy would not even tell me what would happen if I used up the new installs.

I thought game publishers learned their lesson after what happened with Ubisoft, guess not.
Took you this long to find this? Also stop whining.


By the way, you can play on up to 5 machines at the same time.

I found no where in any of my posts where I said that. I like to do things legit. Threads like this are for a poor few who want some attention and QQ on the little things in life.

Does copy and pasting even work on install limited games? I only ask as I have all my games backed up also, apart from crysis warhead which I make sure I uninstall properly.

Where does it say anywhere that Ubisoft lost money doing this even?

I don't understand the thinking behind this type of DRM. Surely DRM is supposed to prevent piracy. But this wont affect pirates one bit. Not "whining", just really cant see the reasoning behind it.
