It's obviously too much to hope for that they'll wise up and anticipate this kind of backlash that makes them change their policy to what they were trying to avoid in the first place. After all, it's already happened almost exactly this same way on Bioshock and Mass Effect: EA puts restrictive DRM in place, and then backs off a portion of it when the outcry gets loud enough. Can we get off this treadmill, please, EA?

Something else the dingbats need to realize is that gamers are computer literate. We chat together online, and if I see a bunch of posts about how annoying the DRM is to players, I won't buy the game.
Taa-daa!!! Their DRM just cost them one sale, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

C'mon EA and the rest of your ilk!!! Catch on to this!
