 Wouldn't it have sucked if EA had merged with BLizzard? And not Activision? They could have run over 3/4 the worlds machines by botting them!

EA still sucks horribly.  I'll be glad when they finally die off.

Regardless of DRM or not, since EA implemented SecuROM, I've avoided their games like the plague save for Need for Speed Undercover. Not that I pirate games very often (only older out of circualtion ones when nostalgia hits), seeing as I own most of mine. it's just the fact that SecuROM crippled my machine and fried my optical drive...

Did anyone notice that GOG.com now has 100 games?  WITH NO DRM AT ALL!  Yes, they are older titles (I think the newest ones are about two years old), but there are some absolutely timeless classics.  $5.99 or $10.99 each is incredibly reasonable as well.  It is nice to actually OWN something that I purchase....

Steam is probably #2 on my list, if only because I am not always online with my laptop.

Between these two, I shall probably never purchase another boxed game again.

I'll say it again too little too late. May 2008 was a whole year ago thats a long time and a lot of agrivation to install and uninstall on new, restored, or changed hardware.

You are a dick.

I think I'll keep pirating your mom.  

 

(This is a reply to the guy who said he is pirating EA anyway)

sure go ahead, install cripping "DRM that destroys your DVD drive and can't be removed even by uninstalling the game. I much prefer to have my computer work then give EA $50 for the 'privilage' of installing their malware.
