The previous restrictions allowed users to install a game only 3 times. Ea has seemingly listened to their complaints and upped the maximum installed to five! Oh, you heard right, now you can install it on 2 more computers! I know, pretty sweet right? DRM is supposed to deter piracy right? Then why is Spore the most pirated game ever? Hopefully, EA will see the light and remove the wretched DRM.
Here's what else they changed:
Going forward, we will amend the DRM policy on Spore to:
- Expand the number of eligible machines from three to five.
- Continue to offer channels to request additional activations where warranted.
- Expedite our development of a system that will allow consumers to de-authorize machines and move authorizations to new machines. When this system goes online, it will effectively give players direct control to manage their authorizations between an unlimited number of machines.
