EA Drops DRM From 'Sims 3'

Sims 3

Apparently, having actually listened to the gripes of angry gamers, Electronic Arts has decided not to include online authentication requirement for upcoming life-simulator The Sims 3. In place of the headache and anger-inducing Internet-based copy protection installed with Spore, Sims 3 will feature good, old fashioned serial number input. Here's how EA's official site puts it: 

"We feel like this is a good, time-proven solution that makes it easy for you to play the game without DRM methods that feel overly invasive or leave you concerned about authorization server access in the distant future."

EA has done its part to keep everything fun and cool. However, when The Sims 3 comes out on the PC and Mac on June 2, 2009, it will be time for you to do your part. Your part is this: If you want to play The Sims 3, buy it. Don't crack it. Don't copy it. Don't download it and share it with your pals. If you don't particularly care for electronic doll simulators, don't buy The Sims 3. But in no case should you pirate this game.
