As if 2K wasn’t taking enough flak from yesterday’s widescreen debacle, now gamers who have spent their hard-earned cash on the PC version of BioShock are finding that they can only install the game twice, ever. The game uses SecuROM copy protection, which verifies the install of the game remotely, disabling further installs once the game has been installed twice. This means if you are the type of person like me who formats your computer frequently to to get rid of generic crap buildup, you are screwed. If you frequently shift around games to free up space, you are screwed. If you are a pirate…well, you’ll probably come up with a work around, so at least the criminals are safe, right? Be gentle with the link below. Seems 2K’s forums are getting slammed for some odd reason.
How many installs do we get ? Transfer of ownership ? [2K Forums – Thanks Seiru!]
