I've been looking forward to this game for months, and I thought it was coming out from a different company. But, now that I've noticed it's from EA, does anyone know if they'll be shipping it infected with DRM like Spore and Sims 3 will be?

If so, that sucks. I really wanted to play this. But at least there's that new WoW expansion coming out the same week that won't be DRM infected. That's always something to look forward to.

I'm affraid this great looking title will be just "Another Rental"
shipped with EA draconian malware/spyware program called Securom and it seems it will also bring you limited installs!

Time will tell but I'm not raising my hopes to much.

Shame for the developers though, I love to have bought this game in the store, yet it's EA policy, so I'll stay away

yes it will. 5 installs of securom goodness...

**In the case of Red Alert 3 (and all PC titles coming out of EA), we will use SecuROM**

Wow, it's a regular love fest for SecuROM on EA's forums. Although it does make one wonder how many of the posters are really EA employees in disguise... it just seems a little too happy over there.

Personally I'd rather be required to put the disk in the drive, and not have to worry about SecuROM and limited activations. But then, I'm crazy like that.

I hope EA is listening. I'd REALLY REALLY like to give them my money for their products...if they would only stop treating the paying customer like a criminal. The people pirating this game aren't buying the version embedded with their malware...Dead Space is available via torrent with secuROM removed. So EA has posed us with two options...$46.99 for malware that imposes on my system....or a free torrent download without it. That's a tough one. But I'd REALLY REALLY like to give them my money for their products. It just isn't happening until they wake up.

Agree 100%. I will never buy a DRM infected game.

The fact that there is copy protection does not bother me. What bothers me is the fact that SecuRom remains on your rig after the game is uninstalled. And totally deleting it damn near requires a doctorate in computer science.

The company that makes SecuRom, on their website makes some comment about leaving the certificate or some such blather.

Frankly, my computer is mine - I bought it. I don't want some company who I don't know and don't want to know, controlling it; which is what the company is doing when they make it so difficult to delete it. As a result, any company, such as EA using SecuRom or any software like it has lost my business upfront. Assuming, of course, I can find out that the crap is there before I buy it.

Well Fortunately, Steam will also be providing the game without SecuROM.

Oh snap I forgot about that drm stuff. That is the sole reason I did not buy battlefield 2142. I played the demo of that game and loved it. This game looks great but I will wait to see if it has drm. The only way to make a real change is with the wallet. If you buy this and it has drm EA will just keep doing it...I think this issue could be this games death kneel. That would be sad through because I admit to being drawn to the fact that a minority is the star, and not some square anime euroasian dude that looks like a laddy. ba dude looks like a laddy! Ok I'll stop (^_^) for now...
