So by now, most of us have either wasted significant amounts of moisture drooling over reviews, screenshots and the recently released demo of Bioshock. Some may even have already purchased it. However, I’m sure most of you are unaware of the DRM constraints of the game.
AT Bioshock’s release, 2K Games had limited users to only two installs on two different computers, and only two users could use the game on each system. When asked about it, their initial response was to “go buy another copy.” As they claimed you paid for the game, but the rest of the family did not.
But to give credit where credit is due, 2K has recently changed their policy. You can now install Bioshock on up to 5 computers, and each computer can have up to 5 users with an installed copy of the game. It’s good to see a company that finally listens to its customers and is willing to adjust its DRM policies accordingly.
Now, if only we could see more headway made in terms of DRM-less Music!!
