Op Ed

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Deus Ex- Human Revolution Is About DRM.
At which point you see the DRM metaphor. The Illuminati’s plan is to put DRM into every piece of cybernetics to ensure that it’s not misused – or, if it is misused, it can be prevented from causing wide-spread harm. Darrow’s murderous critique isn’t just that augmentations are dangerous – but that augmentations will leave you open to something like this. His problem is both what the augmentations let you do (“I can tear that dude’s head clean off if I feel like it”) and what they make you do (“They can make you feel like tearing that dude’s head clean off if they feel like it”). Some technology is just too dangerous for anyone to allow it to exist, because the safety-locks you “have” to add to it are just as rife for abuse as the technology it exists to control.

IndustryGamers - Square Enix's Handling of 'Racism' Case- A Page from Sony Playbook?
Certainly, the issue of perceived racism and the compromise of sensitive personal information are two entirely different beasts. But they're both issues that people take very seriously and personally. And by trying to defend their actions rather than immediately apologizing for them, both Square Enix and Sony risked alienating part of their audience.

Comparing augmentations to DRM is a bit far-fetched.
DXHR is about control, DRM is about control. The Illuminati want to control the augments for power and the publisher want to control the game experience to maximise profit.
