EA loosens its grip further on Spore

Thanks to a heads-up from Ben (one of our blog readers) it appears that EA is becoming a better listener to its customers (at least the Spore ones anyway) and will allow for multiple users to be setup on the same account in an upcoming patch.

This comes on the back of previous news where they were to increase the number of activations and make it less restrictive.

While this is good news indeed, EA have still decided to use SecuROM and still enforce limited activations.

Also, I doubt EA will relax their DRM, even to this limited extent, for their other titles. Spore is a bit of an anomaly since it was a game that has mainstream appeal (we are talking about a Maxis title after all).
