Alpha Protocol on PC will use Uniloc DRM

Wednesday, 14th April 2010 18:44 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


SEGA has revealed that Alpha Protocol will use Uniloc DRM when it’s released on PC.

While some may be a bit suspicious over Uniloc since the Football Manager 2009 fiasco in 2008, SEGA told Eurogamer that those issues were due to “high demand and a small key-printing hiccup”.

This time around, SEGA promises that it will be a “polite” and “unobtrusive” DRM that runs “without compromising experience”.

Game’s out on May 28 in Europe and June 1 in the US for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    They better worry about gameplay,bugs,graphics… then a DRM.I am mean Oblivion and Fallout 3 don’t use any kind of protection and they sold very well on pc

    Not help, PC port fail anyway, ask Ubisoft about AC2, lot of money spend on protection system, and as resold port fail, protection system cracked

    DRM has never stopped me from playing great games inc AC2.

    The only ones who piss n’ moan about DRM are those that are going to copy the game…

    WTF? They want to stop people from stealing their game?! What next? Money in banks locked in vaults?

    The thing about these DRM is it’s so pointless. It really doesn’t stop hackers from busting that DRM wide open.

    If only that were true eh? I have high hopes for this game. Hopefully it will be polished… I mean Obsidian have a rep for making buggy games, but they have never had a game delayed before, they always deliver on time and it’s mostly working… somewhat, but this time, 3 pretty massive delays, hopefully the game was complete in 2009 and they’ve just spent this entire time sprucing it up and making it shine.

    What happens when you want to play Assassin’s Creed 2 when your internet connection is down? What if you’re out and want to play it on your laptop? Or what about when Ubisoft’s servers are being DDOS’ed again?

    What makes you think it’s pirates that complain about DRM? The cracking groups “helpfully” remove all traces of DRM before making a release. It’s only the paying customers who get the shaft from DRM.

    There are fairer ways to do DRM, like Valve on Steam. DRM does nothing to prevent piracy, it just puts legitimate customers off buying the game.

    If what I heard is true cracked version of Assassin’s Creed 2 has surfaced only recently. I think in PC gaming such long a piracy-free window can already be considered a triumph

    pirates will wait, they don’t care anything about “release windows” DRM is such a waste, the only ones who benefit are companies like Uniloc while paying customers suffer the indignity of being treated like criminals. Oh well, guess my wallet will just stay fat.
