    Unbefknlievable! Again, the person most affected by such a muppet brained decision is the legitimate paying consumer. :banghead:

    I guess we have to become more and more savvy about what is contained within our software purchases and avoid buying those programs altogether. Excercise our rights by spending our dollars elsewhere.

    I'm imagining myself as the man in your avatar MadClown, and Epic Games is the woman.

    Well its really not DRM. It has to do with windows live. But no matter what its BS. Plus we don't get a PC version of Gears 2 :cry:
