EA editor in chief: C&C4 unplayable due to DRM

Posted on Thursday, March 25 2010 @ 15:42:52 CET by


The Tech Report spotted that even EA employees are having problems with the new DRM scheme used in Command & Conquer 4. EA.com editor in chief Jeff Green posted several messages on Twitter to express his disappointment with the game's DRM, and complains that problems with his Internet connection make C&C4 unplayable for him:
Here are some of his Tweets in chronological order:

Booted twice--and progress lost--on my single-player C&C4 game because my DSL connection blinked. DRM fail. We need new solutions.

Yeah, Steam's ability to have off-line play is the clear, better model when talking about SP games.

However, C&C4 experiments w/what a "single-player game" is--given it's constantly uploading progress/stats for unlocks. It's complicated.

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.

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.
