Many gamers who bought the PC version of BioShock have been outraged at the game’s DRM for various reasons. The good news is that 2K has finally responded to these issues over on The Cult of Rapture. Here are some choice quotes from the post:

Starting immediately, we will be upping the activation count to a 5 by 5 plan. We will be raising the maximum amount of computers a user can have BioShock installed on simultaneously from 2 to 5, and allowing a user to reinstall BioShock on each of those computers from 3 times to 5 times.

Also, we have in the works a revoke tool which you will be able to run on your machine if you want to free up that key and move it to to another computer

And as for widescreen, we also want to say we completely understand a user’s desire to augment their FOV. BioShock is a harrowing experience, but we don’t want anyone to feel limited (or motion sick!). So we are in the process of working on an official PC patch to give widescreen PC users a choice to expand their horizontal FOV, and are investigating creating a similar update for the 360.

While I didn’t feel that the widescreen problem was that big of a deal, it’s still nice to see that 2K is committed to fixing it. If you still have more unanswered questions, there is a technical FAQ which can be found right here
