SPORE’s DRM setting make users trash the game!


New from the creator of the  popular “The Sims” and “SimCity” videogames, is “Spore.” It’s great reviews are indicative of its status on Amazon.com as well; the game has rocketed to the #1 spot on the site. But all is not well in the word of mouth world for Spore. Digital Rights Management (DRM) settings on the game, which allow installation of the game only three times, have gamers in an uproar. Their [huge] response: trash the Amazon rating of “Spore.” At last check, 92% of the over 2,000 ratings were a measly one out of five stars.
