EA Staffer Not Liking EA's New Restrictive DRM
DRM is holding back the legit gamer. That's not supposed to happen.
Current editor-in-chief of EA.com Jeff Green, who has a long history with the Ziff-Davis publishing company, is making it public that he's not a fan of the new DRM scheme that EA has chosen to protect Command & Conquer 4.
Earlier in the month, we reported that EA was opting to use the same sort of DRM method that Ubisoft is with its constantly-required internet connection, even in single player mode.
Green, an employee of Electronic Arts, made it known through is Twitter stream that he's experiencing a problem with playing through C&C4 not because of a problem with the master server (as is the case with Ubisoft's customer woes) but because of a less-than-reliable DSL connection at home.
"Booted twice--and progress lost--on my single-player C&C4 game because my DSL connection blinked," Green updated last weekend. "DRM fail. We need new solutions."
That update was followed shortly with, "Welp. I've tried to be open-minded. But my 'net connection is finicky--and the constant disruption of my C&C4 SP game makes this unplayable."
Those of you who have been playing Command & Conquer 4, have you had sort of problems?
