Submission + - Mass Effect for PC will use DRM (

HeXetic writes: "Bit-tech is reporting that the upcoming PC release of BioWare's latest single-player RPG, Mass Effect, will use a restrictive form of SecuROM DRM that must re-authenticate the game with BioWare's servers every 10 days, refusing to run if it can't get on the Internet. The Mass Effect forums are in an uproar. Will PC gamers be the next victims of the MSN Music / Google Videos / Sony CONNECT "We eat your money" DRM fiasco? Will I be able to reinstall Mass Effect ten years from now like I did with Baldur's Gate last summer, and play it without resorting to cracking the game?"
