The fist copies of Atari’s The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena to be sold have already come up against DRM issues.
The disc comes with SecuROM and limited installations with no revocation mechanism implemented to reclaim a installation.
The retail version of the game is limited to three installs, which we know is problematic, especially after the Spore fiasco last year.
When the full three installs have been used, owners have to call Atari’s support centre to revoke a code, an inconvenience which gamers have not been happy with in the past.
We’ve put a call in to Atari to see why it’s continued to use this system after its failings were pointed out last year and it was dropped by Valve.
