    Wink BioWare will use a 10-day validation system to prevent piracy

    Mass Effect, Spore Don’t Trust Their Customers



    Revealing that the studio doesn’t trust its audience, BioWare technical producer Derek French has said that the PC versions of both Mass Effect and Spore will make use of copy protection that will require users to validate their games online every ten days to keep playing.


    “After the first activation, SecuROM requires that [Mass Effect PC] re-check with the server within ten days (in case the CD Key has become public/warez’d and gets banned),” he wrote in a post on the BioWare forums.


    “After 10 days a re-check is required before the game can run,” added French. “An internet connection is not required to install, just to activate the first time, and every 10 days after.”


    According to French, Spore, created by Maxis, will also make use of the same scheme. He also notes that this requirement will be clearly printed on the games’ packaging.

    I hope this works for them. I know we are too poor to buy games. but piracy isn't the answer.

    and this will get cracked in less than 3 days and then the ONLY ONES who will suffer for this will be the genuine customers...pathetic decision by BioWare/Maxis.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    i think the time has come to rethink abt the whole copyright issue.bcz whatever measures the undertake ...games will certainly get cracked instantly coz more ppl are working at the wrong side of the desks and these ppl happens to be smarter.it creates a dillema abt wht to do with the industry!!!

    and console games are also get cracked.it requires a simple modding....all my frnds who own XBOX 360 dont buy games....tthey just go for the pirated XBOX games or download it.PS3 piracy is not yet common but ...as u know ..u cant control fluid not to flow!
    i'm gone ......
