Nah, I understood you. But I was respectfully disagreeing a little bit with you. It may indeed be that Crytek wants to remove SecuROM but can't because of an existing agreement. It may have nothing to do with "maintenance mode" of the project at all. Maybe...

If this were true I'd think maybe Crytek wouldn't have used SolidShield for Crysis 2. But they did, so I feel their strategy is to protect their games with DRMs that restrict activations. In my opinion, the worst sort of DRM imaginable. So then it's still not about "maintenance mode" but rather the company's preference.

^^ you are focusing on other issues beyond the limit scope of my comment; you made assumption that I meant it was strictly a technical decision. no decision is ever isolated into narrow silos. In fact I agree that is very likely a business decision to include 3rd party DRM with Steam, thus no disagreement with you.

Well I still somewhat disagree. Psychonauts is a pretty old game but DoubleFine has been updating it lately to fix some outstanding issues with it. There are also lots of other examples. There's no reason to believe that once a steady flow of patches comes to a stop that the product is abandoned forever. It is usually the case, but is not an absolute in the gaming world.

Psychonauts also has a decent cult following and the devs really want to do a sequel

No time to upload a patch to Steam but enough time to rehash Crysis 2 + DLC back onto Steam Cryktek?

You're making me Cry-tom.

The go-to game for testing out new computer builds has a 5 machine activation limit. I think that's... very unfortunate.

I've gotten EA to reactivate the game 2 times now, so at least it can be done, but it really is too bad that I have to jump through these hoops as a paying customer.

I look forward to the day when EA discover what customer good-will can get them. I suspect the world might end before that happens, but I'm always up for a surprise!

Won't be buying this game with SecuROM in it, even if that means I'll never play it.

I just fail to see what is so bad about it. Hell, I barely even know what it is and what it does.

DRM only affects customers. Also, activation limit is terrible. What if everyone gets fed up with SecuROM, and stops buying all EA games. EA would then go under. Now all the SecuROM games cannot be installed. I own and play games that are over 25 years old (Zelda), and still play other games that are 18 years old (like Heretic). In 20 years, I will still want to play some of these games.

Just in case, these guy does check the thread, or someone wants a real answer.

The reason SecuROM is bad, is because it roots (hacks) your operating system to add files and registry keys that are incredibly difficult, and a little risky to remove (it could cause operating system instability)

Well that's a more sensible install limit, even for me it would take a few years to go through that many installs. But still as a matter of principle I would still rather see unlimited installs :P.
