They should really make this info a bit more well known.
Well if someone did'nt know (points finger at self) about the activation revoke and IF they wanted to play the game again really really badly they just might go out and buy it they sell another copy..not that any company would do that of course.

I can only assume it's not in there best interest w/e that may be.

I started my new hunter- played a few hours of borderlands.

secure rom stuff has never gave me probs- I am glad I never had game' with starforce tho- I have read it can be from the pits. I think most other folks talk about it because others do- I have not known any folks that actually has ever had any probs with secure rom- starforce is another story tho- I do know folks that say it ruined their os and had to reinstall etc.

I guess some folks do have probs- I do know it will not stop pirates etc- so it is useless really- just like punk buster and some more make ya feel good stuff. Most people that will pirate will and most that cheat pirate- they do not buy games then cheat.

I can avoid I guess rom stuff I will not try and burn a iso or copy of a game disc etc- I will copy the program files as back up and just move them when needed. I can burn the program files to disc or move to storage etc. So secure rom is useless for that too.. Rom can be avoided in many ways.

If it ever gives me probs I would think on it more- is maybe all I can say.
