In recent weeks there's been significant uproar amongst PC gamers about a current flavour of DRM on recent key titles, such as Spore and Crysis Warhead, where the customer is only given a finite number of activations per copy. Naturally there were concerns of whether or not other eagerly-awaited titles would carry similar DRM implementations, such as Bethesda Softworks' Fallout 3.
PC fans waiting for Fallout 3 can breath a sign of relief. In a recent interview with Shacknews, Peter Hines, Bethesda's Vice President of Public Relations, was asked about which kind of copy protection Fallout 3 would carry;
"Pretty similar to what we did for Oblivion, which was--we basically don't do any--we do the mildest form possible. I actually don't know if I even want to get into what it is that we exactly do, but we try to be really non-invasive when it comes to that stuff."
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion only had a disc check.
Fallout 3 is slated for release on October 31st, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
