I stopped playing games on my computer about 2 years ago; however, I still play a good bit on my 360. I can say that I would be pissed if EA installed this crap on my PC without my permission. Also, even if SecuROM details were in the terms and agreements bit that you have to agree to before installation, it still would have been a joke. Who really reads every word, if any, before clicking on the agree or continue button?
All in all, I can understand why EA has gone with SecuROM.
