DRM on Batman: Arkham Asylum Causes Steam Keys to Fail

Posted by | July 30, 2012

Batman: Arkham Asylum is a great game. No question there. The real issue is why such a great game comes with such horrible DRM. It seems the DRM is so bad, that users can’t authenticate the game with their Steam keys. Normally, this would just be an annoyance, but thanks to the recent Steam Summer Sale, an awful lot of players bought Arkham Asylum over Steam, only to discover they downloaded a brick. Batman: Arkham Asylum uses SecuROM DRM, by the way. Destructoid has the story.

    The ironic thing here is half of Arkham Asylum involves using a code-breaker to shut down computer-controlled locks. Why, if only gamers could do such a thing in real life to crack the broken DRM that was preventing them from playing a game they purchased.

    That’s just fantasy.
