At least that clears it up a bit. Seems less invasive than normal DRM, considering it doesn't actually root its self into anything.
or so they claim. They can say whatever the [bleep] they want before the release.
Also, the FOV ingame is going to be locked at 55.
If I could double cancel my preorder I would.
Therein lies the point of the beta at least. To see how things function, see if things need changes, like FOV, damage, almost every multiplayer aspect. DICE said they are specifically going to also be seeing if the FOV needs to be unlocked/changed/whatever.
Either way, if they are lying about the SecuROM's functions, they end up getting sued over it, and they'll lose money over it, which is something to avoid. I think we all remember Spore.
