Alone in the Dark Ships in EU; DRM Info

Infogrames announces Alone in the Dark is shipping to European stores for PC, Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation2 (thanks Gamer's Hell). On a related note, TVG reports the game includes the reviled SecuROM DRM, which will require an internet connection to activate the game, though it does not seem that their implementation includes the phone home features or limited number of activations that were so controversial in Mass Effect and BioShock. Finally, Kotaku reports that some sites have been getting legal threats from Atari for early reviews of the game, saying that these must be from pirated copies, prompting speculation that this would not be such an issue if these reviews were more positive. Next Generation contacted Atari for comment on this, and received none.

OMG talk about blame the pirates for everything!

"Our game sucks" - Blame the pirates
"Our game flopped" - Blame the pirates
"My life didn't turn out the way they wanted it too" - Blame the pirates

Seriously how can a post on one hand big up their DRM then promptly claim it has been cracked and people are reviewing the game early.

BTW Atari - it's not been cracked yet because from the reviews it doesn't seem to be worth the effort for the people to crack it or the bandwidth for the people to download it.
