Dragon Age 2 Sneaks SecuROM into your PC

Publishers of Dragon Age 2, Electronic Arts managed to land themselves with some bad PR today when a consumer rights group has detected their game disc installing the notorious SecuROM, an intrusive DRM software hated many many PC gamers. (Dragon Age 2, EA, Industry, PC)

and it is people like you who make developers create invasive DRM.

Oh god, EA and Bioware have been getting their share of bad luck and karma happening to them these past days...Bioware's Dragon Age 2 turned out good, but not good enough, they banned a player off the forums and he discovers that he can't even access the game he purchased...and now this????

Not to mention that PC gamers HATE HATE HAATE SecuROM with a passion. This is taking it down a road that I think is not good for them. I think it's a bit too far this time.

Nothin' says lovin' like BAD PR. Serves them right for doing this. Funny how DRM only hurts the paying supporters of a product, while the hacked copies are usually better--and free.

These are times when piracy comes in hand.

Less content, more cutscenes, more tedious combat, silencing criticism.....and now SecuROM? Like I needed another reason not to get the game.

Forget it, EAware. I'm not supporting this game.

SecuROM SUCKS. I couldnt play GTA 4 for a while because of that CRAPOLA. Why would you use it if it prevents anyone from playing? Stupid decision EA/Bioware

Game sux anyway. Gaider should go back to writing books, games are not meant to be linear. You need a GM to create fantasy world where anything is possible and available while you follow the internal rules. DA2 does not even have charisma/beuty/barter/etc. so all dialogs are just there for make up, so it would look like you are making a choice... in reality, it's almost the same whatever you click on.

why is securerom so bad? Can any pc gamers shed some light on this?

SecurROM is a Sony rootkit technology that prevents you from playing games.
