PC: The Sims 3 will not use SecuROM

I’ve been a Sims fan since the begining and is looking forward to Sims 3. This week it was announced that The Sim 3 will no contain SecuROM or any other DRMs. The game will only have disc-based copy protection, which means you have to only input a serial code like you did in Sims 2. No need for any online authentication, which is very good. I hope EA have learned.

Here is a quote from the news on TheSims3.com:

The game will have disc-based copy protection – there is a Serial Code just like The Sims 2. To play the game there will not be any online authentication needed.

We feel like this is a good, time-proven solution that makes it easy for you to play the game without DRM methods that feel overly invasive or leave you concerned about authorization server access in the distant future.

The game is out on 2-5 June (both PC and Mac), depending on where you live.

Gamespot have put up a Sims 3 interview with Ben Bell.
