Riddick Game Fight Piracy With DRM, Annoys Players
The PC release of Atari's Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena sparked a bit of scandal, as users began complaining about the draconian DRM that comes packed with the game.

The question is: what are players going to do after these three installs? Buy a new game?
Atari was quick to answer: that is not the case. The company stated that all users having run out of installs can simply call Atari and will be provided with a new code and the complementary 3 new installs.
This should make everyone happy, except for those wondering themselves: “And what if Atari goes bankrupt – that’s a legitimate one, Atari is far off its good days – how am I to play the game after that?”
Well, this question goes unanswered. Unless you think that fighting piracy by all means is a good answer.
