EA Infects Battlefield Hardline With New Ghastly DRM?

The folks at Guru3D are claiming that the DRM used by EA in Battlefield Hardline will lock you out of the game after too many hardware changes. We are looking into this and will update you when we find out more. Thanks to MorgothPl for the heads up.

Here's what EAs DRM is doing, they don't just verify the number of PCs you work on slash use, nope .. they dare to monitor hardware changes now, which I am sure is a privacy breach on many levels. So once we insert new hardware (CPU / mobo or graphics cards) the hardware id # hash changes and if that happens a couple of times they are rendering your activation invalid.
