EA on C&C4 DRM

A tweet by EA's Jeff Green relates his own experience with problems with the DRM in EA's own Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight which were severe enough that he thinks something needs to change (this was posted a few days ago, noticed by Ars Technica). He starts by tweeting: "Booted twice--and progress lost--on my single-player C&C4 game because my DSL connection blinked. DRM fail. We need new solutions," and: "Welp. I've tried to be open-minded. But my 'net connection is finicky--and the constant disruption of my C&C4 SP game makes this unplayable." He added: "Yeah, Steam's ability to have off-line play is the clear, better model when talking about SP games," and then added a couple of comments to temper his reaction, saying "However, C&C4 experiments w/what a 'single-player game' is--given it's constantly uploading progress/stats for unlocks. It's complicated," and: "I think if we think of C&C4 as an 'online-only' game--which it basically is--then maybe we'd adjust our expectations accordingly."
