Yessss!
It seems Starforce may be losing one of its biggest supporters, as Ubisoft announced today that Nival's upcoming RPG Heroes of Might & Magic V will not have the controversial, and much disliked, Starforce copy protection, instead Ubisoft opted to use "an alternative protection." If this means the longtime Starforce supporter is shying away from using it in general or just a one time experiment is not disclosed.

So the Starforce free GRAW-PC rumor has some backing now as well. Good find SH64!

Ubi has probably seen the massive success of Oblivion and is experiencing a change of heart. Good for them, especially if GRAW turns out to be SF free.

Awesome... I am so glad the tides are turning and we are finally getting away from Starforce more and more.
