Borderlands De-Authorization Tool

As some readers noted, the Borderlands patches released earlier today included SecuROM for the new The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned DLC for the role-playing shooter. The SecuROM implements a five-installation limit for the DLC, and Big Download now offers downloads of the de-authorization tool that will allow the management of this five-machine limit.

On the bright side, it's confirmed that loading up Borderlands does not in fact punch your baby and sleep with your wife. Score one for the good guys.

Wow, I wonder who came up with this brilliant decision.

"Hey, let's ship the full game with a basic CD-check! But we better make sure the far less valuable DLC requires online activation and has install limits, otherwise those pesky pirates will pirate it!"

Why doesn't this just ship with the DLC? You have to download it separately? Christ.

Is this satirical?

And the pirates are playing the original and the DLC without the installation limits. Go progress! One day, maybe, the developers and publishers will wake up and realize "hey, if I call my wife a scumbag and a criminal, she'll leave! Maybe that's why my customers are leaving too!" Yeah right.

...heh, why would the DLC need an install limit in the first place? People are just going to pass it around and install it on their systems?

I guess retail versions of the game don't have any online system that keeps ownerships established when you buy the DLC so someone could just activate it and pass it on to someone else?

Seems like you could easily just assign the DLC a code to identify it and link that to the code that it's activated with. (IE their copy of Borderlands...) And you wouldn't need to limit activations, just lock it to that one code...

Glad I have this game on the 360.

Not a chance in hell that I'd buy this. At least the main game is Securom-free.

DLC seems to have hit a new low with this.

WTF were they thinking?!

Gearbox just lost a sale... and every last shred of respect I might have had for them.

Screw 'em.

A shame for a DRM-free game to be ruined by inexplicable DRM on its DLC.
