Like a lot of other people this has been a pretty confusing situation for me, I finally just decided to look up some info on it. Relevant points below:
- ALL Games for Windows Live games have a 15 install limit. I had no clue about this as it seems to be completely hidden from casual discovery.
- SecuRom is a disk check only for the retail edition, no activation or DRM installed (other than GfWL's activation)
- They haven't confirmed what the Steam version will entail yet, they are looking into it and will get an answer by the end of this week.
I don't think I'm going to get it or any other GfWL games going forward, I had no idea there was a hidden limitation. The situation however is far different than the rumors that have been floating around due to Elizabeth at 2k giving conflicting info.
