Anyone in EUR planning on buying it right away? We all will be very curious how it looks, runs, and operates with the new DRM

Will get my review copy in a couple of days so i'll let you know how this DRM is (will also stress it, especially when you're downloading and uploading files at the same time)

Apparently there were some last minute changes to the DRM and after you lose your connection, it doesn't resume from the nearest checkpoint anymore. You can continue from the same spot, which should have been the case from the beginning if you ask me.

The problem is, that except this, the game is a straight console port. Eurogamer reports, that the mouse doesn't feel right, action icons are confusing and there are basically no changes in the graphic department. So much for the 4 month delay

That's what I've said?

And yes, the Xbox 360 controller works, but you have to select it manually.

Only game I would possibly consider paying $60 is The Witcher, Orange Box, and maybe Risen.
