Spore DRM Updated
"Are EA buckling under the public backlash?"
Published: 18th September 2008 | Source: EA Games |
EA also made responses to a number of the main complaints about the SecurRom software to MTV. They released some numbers showing that only a small portion of users install on more than one machine, let alone three. There was also an assurance that the SecurRom software contains no spyware or viruses, and that should EA one day shut the servers down, a patch would be issued to deactivate the DRM software. For further reading, the full responses and statistics can be found here.
While it's nice to see a company make changes based on user input, the deactivation measure seems to be such an obvious idea that it should have been implemented in the first place. Still, if nothing else, it's a start. Are EA's actions and responses enough, or does more still need to be done?
