Command & Conquer 4 requires constant online connection

Uh oh ...

Hot off the heels of Ubisoft's serpentine PC DRM, Electronic Arts has revealed that it doesn't want to be left out of the hate and has jumped into the fire as well. Command & Conquer 4, like Ubi's recent PC games, will require a constant online connection to play. No Internet? No game that you paid for!

EA proudly declared that C&C4 has "NO DRM" but clearly this is not the case. C&C4 will boot you if your connection drops, making it no less insidious than Assassin's Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5. Electronic Arts is trying to justify the DRM by saying the game updates user statistics, but it's a poor excuse given that other games simply wait until a player is back online to update stats. 

Very poor form, EA. It seems every time that particular publisher comes close to removing its old reputation as an evil entity, it takes one step backwards into the dark ages. For shame.
