The battery was primarily used for musicians, right? Without the battery, that should be OK for PCs (games), if my memory serves me right.
I had my SC-88 Pro without a battery for a few days since I didn't have any replacements on hand. As a musician, it's really nice to have it in since it saves things like the MIDI OUT/MIDI THRU toggle, instrument patches, etc. But for games it saves absolutely nothing of importance and you can keep it removed.
