The Sims 3 says no to DRM

Hot off the GDC 2009 presses (well actually it’s an official site) comes news that The Sims 3 will not use online authentication when it is released on June 2 for PC and Mac. The Sims 3 will instead use a disc-based serial code just like the PC games of yesteryear. EA feels this will prevent backlash brought on by DRM methods and eliminates problems with authentication server access in the future. The score is now honest buyers: 1, DRM:0
