I suspect a big part of the reason to adopt this new system is not so much to combat piracy, but to combat resale of the software - with limited installs and a unique CD-key that is tied to your own personal account, it will be hard to sell on this software. And that means more sales of originals while screwing the right of resale that you should have with something you own.
It's all about the money. EA's influence on Bioware is already starting to shine through it seems.
I've become increasingly disillusioned with gaming over the last few years… the quality of games (at least the type of quality that matters to me - I'm not talking pretty graphics here) has gone right downhill. I play less and less as it is. With the few games I had any real interest in deciding to slap on draconian drm on top… I may just give up altogether.
