    I think this a probably the best version of DRM I have seen. Unfortunately this will become the norm if PC gaming is to survive.

    It is the same protection as Silent Hunter 5. It will be defeated just as fast (under 24 hours).

    All very nice, but why i have to buy two keys of the same game so my brother and i can play Bad Company 2, MW2, GTA4, etc. online IN THE SAME PC. This happens in PC only, in my ps3 i have several accounts so my brother has his account and i have mine, and everyone is happy.

    Why windows allows users to have different accounts, but Steam will only run in one at a time, and why i have to buy 2 keys of the same game to have 2 profiles, i even use 2 mice in the same pc (and logitech setpoint will only recognize the G9 in only one user account:banghead:).

    Im not against DRM, Steam, GFWL:shadedshu, etc, all i say is do things right, let me have multiple users profiles for SP and MP (like COD4 MW), in THE SAME PC, as i have in my ps3, or sell the game cheaper.

    Yeah, it worked so well with Silent Hunter 5. I can deal with Steam and even Warhead's DRM but this is too much.
