I refuse to install SecuROM on principle. I bought Mass Effect 1 and 2 on Amazon for $12. Wikipedia says
More recent versions of Mass Effect on budget prices (those available on EA classics and Steam) have SecuROM omitted
so I'm not sure if it will not have SecuROM or if that just means things like Steam with their own DRM don't have it.
Are there any retail copies of Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 which don't include SecuROM when you install? If so, is there any way to know if the copy I have includes SecuROM?
