Spore, Mass Effect for PC to Require Periodic Online Validation

In the BioWare forums, technical producer Derek French stated that the PC versions of Mass Effect and Spore are going to use SecuROM copy protection that requires online validation on install and validation every ten days for the game to keep working.

It's a sad state of affairs when companies resort to draconian DRM to try and protect their games. All this is going to do is upset people, and cause tech support problems. Everyone knows that five minutes after the game is out it's going to get cracked. So in the end all they will have done is make it harder for paying customers to use their product. I think the guys at Penny Arcade said it best with their latest comic.
