EA Ditches SecuROM From Bad Company 2 Steam

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 gamers who bought their game through Steam will soon have to contend with one fewer DRM schemes when trying to play their game.

EA revealed in the changelog for the latest Battlefield: Bad Company 2 patch that the update will strip the SecuROM DRM protection from the Steam version of the game.

That doesn't mean that the game will be free from any DRM, but rather EA is content on using Valve's Steam-based DRM to protect its product.

    At least unlike Ubisoft (Creed 2 anyone), Not everyone at Ea is brainless.

    +1, probably cuz they realized that they can make more with less DRM annoyances, wonder when Ubi will realize that.

    And all the other people who decide to buy a box are left with a DRM infested product, yeah you go EA...Exactly why I don't buy your games!!!

    Its all to do with revenue generation and protection, come on admit it, you want to stop us selling what we bought second hand to reduce sales being eaten by second hand games, yeah EA, well bite my move to boycott you and Ubisoft!!!

    I don't use Steam on principle because this is exactly where its helping lead us to irrelevant of how cool it seems to be!

    There are enough honest games developers out there that deserve my money and boy are they getting ever more these days!!
