No Online DRM in Sim 3

The Sims 3 Website has word the controversial online features of the SecuROM digital rights management system will not be used for the upcoming release of The Sims 3, saying the lifestyle simulation sequel will instead use a serial key-based system with no online authentication. According to EA's humble Rod Humble: "We feel like this is a good, time-proven solution that makes it easy for you to play the game without DRM methods that feel overly invasive or leave you concerned about authorization server access in the distant future." Eurogamer asked if this was a trend for other future games and were told by an EA spokesperson: "We are just looking at this solution for The Sims 3 at the moment."

If the box says EA stay the fuck away.
Back in the Trip Hawkins days, EA used to be a mark of quality. Given that they've spent the past year publicaly apologising (c.f. "We destroyed Bullfrog") and released a few new IPs, I think we should start giving them a little bit more credit again.

If they nuke SecuROM completely then I'll be a happy bunny.
