    Go BioWare, that's a step in the right direction with DRM

    What what what... EA are becoming good??

    Has Hell Frozen over? Or did Activision Make a better deal with the devil?

    EA just need to get there support/patches system in places properly rather than abandoning games (Cough BF1943) then they will be on the way to becoming one of the good guys.

    Just to clarify, that's Bioware who are part of EA being sensible about DRM?

    I think I just saw a jet-powered pig go past the window... :eeek:

    ahem, BF2 which just recently received a patch.
    Although the entire NFS series pre-SHIFT still needs fixing, :D.

    While I love BioWare for this,

    but is presumably planning to use DLC as an incentive for customers to buy legitimate copies, just as it did with Dragon Age.

    Yeaaaaah. The DLC was pirated something like a week after release.

    You have to be online to load saved games that used DLC in Dragon Age (so all of them if you are a legit customer) and there's a disc check. That's still less than ideal in my mind, at least steam gave you some offline time. I'm moving this weekend and hoping for immediate internets, fingers crossed.

    I love the dragon age drm, even when you crack your own game (yes I bought the game) you still get all the online dlc features.

    lol "Dragon Age: Online" .. that's a new one ... I'm quite pleased to hear this about the DRM.. as I've boycotted Mass Effect due to hearing the DRM scheme they used.. and I'll definitely be picking up Dragon Age: Origins at some point in the near future :)

    Actually, BioWare are rather good with their DRM (or lack thereof) - For instance, you can store your NWN, expansion and NWN2 CD-keys on the Bioware site, so you don't have to hunt down the manual and/or case when re-installing. Very handy.
