Zefar, i appreciate that you don't think it's a hard path to follow, but you didn't actually give me a good reason that i should have to. I know the implication: I should have to because EA says i should have to, and i don't get to play the game if i don't jump through their hoops or go around them. I am content not playing. It is just a game.

In case you wonder why i'm posting at all, it is perhaps in the hope that someone will pause to think about how important this is to them. Whichever way they decide, i always approve of buyers being more aware of what they're buying.

It's only a couple of older EA games like Crysis and Crysis Warhead that for some reason still have DRM.

Over a year and a half a ago... how ironic.

People with a more reasonable mind and able to just keep these type of games installed on one or two PC and it will be just fine.
A snotty, unhelpful response that makes no sense at all. It's not reasonable to assume someone is going to leave a game installed on their machine indefinitely. Things like catastrophic drive failure or machine upgrades are legitimate changes - and I doubt some garbage DRM is going to be able to differentiate between an OS reload or a new machine.

One page back it looks like that wasn't actually the case and Solidshield is still in there.

Ironic that it was still there and he said it would be removed right after release... A year and a half later and it is still there... (to be more specific for you)

Ah, got you. Sorry, I misunderstood.

FWIW DS2 looks like a wonderful game. For 5 bucks I think it would be worth buying even with horrible DRM, though I could understand forgoing that for the sake of principle.
