BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, has backed down on its original plans to require users to re-authenticate Mass Effect ever ten days. The original announcement was met with hostile reaction from the gaming community.
We reported last week BioWare’s
more games should have this anti piracy scheme. I was soo sad when crytec said there will be no more PC exclusives. 10 days is a bit extravagent but 30 days seems very fair but you can refresh whenver you want
Why do game companies keep trying to re-invent the wheel with anti-piracy schemes. Unless I am mistaken, Company of Heroes nailed it, and so did Valve. Why can't other game developers follow these models?
Thank you Bioware. I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to play Spore. I don't mind authenticating my games once (still means you must have an internet connection though), but having a service that runs all the time checking your games is too much. Even having to make sure you have an internet connection every time you play is too much.
