Submission + - Spore DRM servers fail for legitimate users (spore.com)

ringbarer writes: Many users are reporting that the DRM for EA Games' Spore (the most pirated game of 2008) is failing. New users are finding their CD keys have not been able to validate for over a month, leaving the few legitimate purchasers with a $40 coaster. EA Support is refusing to respond to any support tickets raised on the matter. This has occured shortly after 1500 EA staff were made redundant. Guess they should have kept their DRM specialists on the payroll!
