The DRM smack talk has already started.  I was going to say that the reason they are killing it off is they couldn't figure out a good way to cripple it with DRM.

I'm not too sad, it just would have had some crappy DRM latched to it since it was from EA.

I'm hoping that by the time this game was actually scheduled to come out, DRM will have gone the way of the dodo.

I think DRM will be apart of any EA game like this that is already in development.  Unless there is major, organized, action against DRM and those who employ it in their games, there wont be any reason for companies to stop using it.

Well, major, disorganized action against Spore's DRM at least convinced EA to tone it down a notch or two. On top of that, it spurred large, far-reaching discussions about DRM's vices -- making me wonder how willing publishers will be to use it in the future. At the very least, I imagine even EA is attempting to find an alternate method at this point.

I hope they do.  I'm not against putting in a CD key for online play, but limiting the amount of times I can install, forcing me to have the cd/dvd in the drive, and telling me that I can only create 1 online account total are the things that make me so upset.  Not to mention forcing me to be online when I want to play is just pure BS.  A lot of people talk bad about steam, but they only require you to be online once on a computer so that you can save your login information, so I am willing to trade that to play those games I've purchased online.  But I am still against online activation for games I've purchesed from a store.
