This protection not only fails, its adding to the problem!!!
I reckon because of more ways to try and protects games more people have gotten involved in bypassing these stupid protection ideas. The people who wouldn't pirate are the victims really because they do nothing now and now have to resort to so called cracks to play their game.
Anyways isn't it funny that Will Wright and his team spent 5 years so I hear on this game and now the drm is getting more attention then the actual game. Spore got screwed by EA
also good to be back
