EA Releases DRM De-Authorization Tool for SecuROM Titles

200°
264w ago - As many know, some EA PC games only allow the owner to install the game on five machines.

Back in December, EA released a Spore De-Authorization Tool which allowed users to switch these five authorizations around between machines.

Now they've unveiled a new tool that allows you to do this for over a dozen games with SecuROM. You can access the authorization management tool HERE.

The tool only works with SecuROM games released in May 2008 or later. The list of games eligible for de-authorization is available through that link and includes Mass Effect, Mercenaries 2, and Spore. You can also download a program that scans your computer for eligible games.

It seems unlikely that anyone will ever need to install the same game on more than five different computers, even across their entire lifetime. Still, nice to know you can, eh?
 

Sony Aims for Simultaneous Digital PSP Game Releases in 2009

265w ago - The head of PlayStation US marketing, John Koller, has revealed that Sony is planning on simultaneous digital versions of its PSP titles released alongside their UMD equivalents.

To quote: The head of PlayStation marketing at Sony America, John Koller, has stated that Sony would ideally like to see simultaneous digital versions of its PSP titles released alongside their retail UMD counterparts.

€In the back half of this year, we should see a good rise in the amount of content that comes to PSN for the PSP,€ he told Wired. €We're aware that most of the content thus far has been for PS3, and that's based on the usage model and who has been demanding that content.

€But as we continue, and there's more of a desire from the consumer for PSP content, we're going to really increase the size and amount of content that's available.€
