Submission + - EA puts DRM into Crysis Warhead on Steam (steampowered.com)

DragonTHC writes: "I just bought Crysis: Warhead and Crysis Wars on Steam.

Isn't that enough?"

Information that was taken from the database includes email addresses, names, addresses and phone numbers of both retail and institutional clients.
