Fallout 3 To Ship On PC Minus DRM
Pete Hines is in quick fashion becoming a hero of mine. He is never at a loss of words, and everytime he talks about Fallout 3, he continues to show the love for PC fans. Well, mostly love, as they won’t have mod tools at launch, but one downer, within a stream of positives is good enough for me.
Today, Pete went above and beyond the call of duty for PC players everywhere, as he stated that Fallout 3 would ship with little to no DRM whatsoever. He would not go into specifics, except to say that it would use the same system as Oblivion, which just used a simple disc check algorithm.
He admits that it will probably assist with some piracy of the game, but he feels more people will buy the game if it does not have overly obtrusive DRM. Anyone at Electronic Arts listening right about now?
