No SecuROM in Dragon Age: Origins

BioWare's Dragon Age Forums outline plans for copy protection in Dragon Age: Origins, revealing the upcoming RPG will not use the reviled SecuROM system:
I have some good news to pass on to you today that answers one of the most frequently asked Dragon Age: Origins PC questions.

We’re happy to announce that the boxed/retail PC version of Dragon Age: Origins will use only a basic disk check and it will not require online authentication. In other words, the retail PC version of the game won’t require you to go online to authenticate the game for offline play. We have chosen not to use SecuROM in any version of Dragon Age that is distributed by EA or BioWare.

Some other cool stuff that we hope you’ll like - we have already launched the Dragon Age toolset beta, which offers developer-grade tools, and we’re looking forward to what fans will create with it. We’ll also be supporting the game with a ton of great downloadable content that will be available for purchase after the game’s release. Together these features will provide some very cool reasons to go online with Dragon Age: Origins.

We’re really excited as we head towards the release of Dragon Age: Origins this fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, so keep an eye out for more news as we’ll be providing you with more details shortly.

Stay tuned for more coolness to come… =]

CJ, there's an actual link to a JR conference call where he says its partly due to adding to their quarterly financials.

Again... where? Link? If you google for Dragon Age's delay and JR the only thing that comes up is a conference call with investors where JR stated exactly what Derek "Crush" French from BW posted earlier in this thread (check here: http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/57070 ).

Why anyone would bother to make something like that up is just silly.

Well, there's a lot of silly and retarded people in the world and wherever you got your info from there's plenty of both.

I realize your whole meaning in life is to troll Blue's, though you should know what you're talking about while trolling, other wise you just come off as a moron.

Unlike you I have been able to prove my point with a link to what JR actually said while you insist on him saying something completely retarded that he most certainly never ever said to anyone. Anyone with half a brain and the slightest bit of an idea of how businesses work and operate would know that what you claim he said is beyond retarded.

Having read a little of your posting history I'm actually convinced you're an idiot anyway

Why? Because I keep exposing dumbass pot-smoking anti-corporate commie cunt liars like yourself who make up stuff that suits their agenda time and again? Fine. If that makes me an idiot I'm pretty damned proud of it, son. In this case at least I'm an idiot with a clue and with proof that your claims are all made up BS.
