Not all your PC games will run on Windows 10

Older PC games which use versions of SafeDisc and Securom DRM (digital rights management) will not work on Windows 10, according a report by Engadget.

The report stated that games using the copy protection systems – which includes the likes of Grand Theft Auto III, Battlefield 1942, and The Sims – aren’t allowed to run on Windows 10.

The reason for the games being blocked is that the digital rights management system “intrudes deeply” into your PC, and could introduce a loophole for computer viruses.

According to the report, some developers have patched out the need for DRM, and digital stores like GOG sell versions that aren’t subject to the copy protection software.
