Konami’s technological level has recently attracted concern, with the news that the 3D version of its “Aquanaut: Online Aquarium”, surprisingly enough a game of aquarium simulation, takes a rather drastic uninstallation measure – quoth their website:

We will issue an update which enables normal uninstallation.
Currently, we are investigating. The release date is undecided.”
