Football Manager 2012 Requires Steam
In a move that apparently pissed off a bunch of people, if Eurogamer is to be believed, Football Manager 2012 is going to require Steam to play, even if you have a physical copy of the game. In what Sega says is a measure to combat piracy, those who buy a physical copy will have to activate the game on Steam.
This is the first time I’ve heard of gamers being up in arms about required Steam activation in many years, and so I’m just baffled right now. Apparently some of our bros over in Europe just don’t like the damn thing, even if it’s the weakest method of DRM in existence, pretty much, and auto-updating is pretty sweet. But, hey, protest everything, I say. It can all go to hell.
