The Sims 4 pixelates pirated game copies

I may not be very fond of EA's draconian DRM measures and excessive money-making techniques (Dungeon Keeper mobile being the prime example of that), but sometimes they actually hit the mark, like the anti-piracy method used on The Sims 4.

Gamers playing a pirate copy will soon find out that their screen is becoming a blurry mess of pixels, like the ones used to censor nude Sims, and (at least this time) that's no bug at all; it's just a funny way to mess with gamers playing pirate copies of the game.

Though this isn't the first nor only case of original piracy annoying methods in games, it certainly is a nice one. (The best ever was a game that put's in place of a software developing firm, and that makes you facing a rampant increase in piracy that bankrupts you and prevents you from progressing in the game - that was just perfect! :)

So, before you head to the forums complaining your Sims 4 has a bug that pixelates your screen... you better think twice about getting a legitimate copy of the game.
