"Sony (the owner of SecureROM copy protection) is still up to its old tricks. One would think that they would have learned their lesson after the music CD DRM fiasco, which cost them millions. However, they have now started infesting PC gaming with their invasive DRM. Facts have surfaced that show that the recently released PC game BioShock installs a rootkit, which embeds itself into Explorer, as part of its SecureROM copy-protection scheme. Not only that, but just installing the demo infects your system with the rootkit. This begs the question: Since when did demos need copy protection?"
That is a serious concern, even if it does next to nothing. Its corporate sponsored spy/malware. I don't want it on my system, and I don't recall getting a warning that copyright protection software was being embedded into my OS for a DEMO install.
Better known as:
That noob who crashed the chopper.
That noob who ran over the mine.
That noob who TK'd me with a sniper rifle.
That noob who hit that APC at 300m with light AT! Our APC...
well, back to bioshock, I've played the game right through, it staarted quite spooky, but, after a while, it just became another shooter for me, albeit the prettiest (and most enthralling) shooter I've played.
