Some people want to play when they are on the road or at some area were there is no internet connection around, or pretty much they don't have internet in their household... ever think of that?

Not everybody is as lucky as some of us

But anyways Retail version does not need constant connection... so its all good

Let's not jump to conclusions, shall we?

Update: People Can Fly has denied this. Apparently somebody at EA screwed up somewhere and wrote down the wrong DRM on the company's product disclosure page. People Can Fly is looking into the mix-up. The official line is that the 'net is only required for initial registration.

Also, nobody has yet denied the mandatory Games For Windows Live chicanery.

Looks good I don't mind a constant connection, I took the time to route a wired connection through the house and have never dropped a signal. But still...having a constant connection would annoy me if a bird flew in front of my dish. Registering the game and sending a signal every time it's opened would be a better idea, but CONSTANTLY requiring to be connected...just doesn't make much sense to me.

Hello. I want to buy your brand new special cheese you have in stock.

Sure thing.

Can i have a taster?

No. You have to pay full price to try it.

Alright, i'll do that.

Thank you sir, oh and one last thing, to eat the cheese you have to hold my hand.

Oh. No thanks.

They learned nothing from Ubisoft trying and failing then taking their always on DRM out of some of their games and dropping it all together. What the hell is EA thinking??

I was able to play single player, but I was able to play ALL my games on Steam. But read the DRM again. You'll see why this argument is moot

Even if it is only during install and MP, when you would need it anyway, I am now seriously considering not buying this game.

First of all these games still get pirated, second of all why are you so willing to trade in your ease of use of a product to protect some publisher's bottom line when they have demonstrated that they don't care one whit about your gaming experience?

How did it go?
Your games still launch. Do you even have Steam? I don't know how long, but I think you have like three months before you have to sign in again, making intermittent Internet not a threat with Steamworks DRM.

Also, you can choose to go in offline mode and never have to go online to play any of your games. You do have to go online to install new ones or get updates though.

You will also see that a good $10 game with no DRM can still SELL a lot of copies. In fact the games that get pirated the most also sell the most. Wouldn't you think that would be the opposite if piracy was really stealing sales like most content publishers claim?

Don't forget the iPhone app guy who came out and said that piracy doubled his app sales through word of mouth.

I played the demo for this (on PS3) and I wasn't really a fan of the gameplay. I probably won't be getting this, whether the "constant net connection" rumor is true or not (I see people posting that it was a mistake and the game won't have this DRM, and some saying that retail will not have it).

The gameplay trailers looked pretty cool, but the demo... I dunno. Maybe they just don't give you enough to do much with in it. They only give 3 weapons in the demo, and I only managed to get a couple of the "epic kill combos" for each weapon, and the weapons weren't really as cool as I was expecting. I mean, didn't seem like a bad game, just didn't meet the expectations I had after watching gameplay videos.
