Gamers React To 'Spore' DRM

PC and Mac game Spore has only been out for a few days, and gamers are weighing in with their opinions. While critical opinions of the game vary, gamers are close to unanimous on one issue: The game's Digital Rights Management.

Spore's DRM seems a tad ridiculous. Apparently, if you purchase the game, you can only install it on three computers without getting special permission from EA. Not only that, the activation is done on the internet, meaning that eventually, EA could shut down those servers and leave you with an unplayable Spore.

Making PC games is rough. On the one hand, it's easy to pirate things with your PC so you gotta have some protection, but on the other, treating your paying customers with suspicion can only result in angry people.
