How can the Release Control both "not install anything to the PC" and "completely remove itself after the game release date has passed?"

Presumably they mean it doesn't install any funky drivers or anything, but it still doesn't read right.

You're right, the wording was odd. But the release date check is something that runs before the installer. It runs from the DVD, so it's true it isn't installed on your hard drive. The part where they say "it completely removes itsself after the game release date has passed" is complete bullshit. It ALWAYS runs on install, but it just does so invisibly if the check passes.

Actually, it sounds totally superfluous since you need to register online before you can play anyway.
