Damn this Internet DRM crap. Its getting out of hand.
Go ahead and tack on all the drm you want cause my back log is more then big enough for me not to care about your shit future releases. So drm away publishers cause I could care less
Even though I don't like a single game they produce and wouldn't have bought any to begin with..
I SAY BOYCOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sad reality is, we'll have to live with it, its either that, or buy a box that hooks with the tv to play our games. Its sucks yes, but we have to admit piracy is rampant. That doesn't give devs much choice. Anyways, drm isnt the option, like it has been proved countless times. Just take a look at modern warfare 2, you're supposed to log in online to play (multiplayer) even this has been hacked, some guys just put up alteriw.net and thousands of people are on it. Meh, I'm tired of this shit.
You pirates make me sick.
pirates have pushed these companies to the very edge. now they have no alternative but enforce the most strictest of DRM controls. they have nobody to blame but themselves.
Pirates will pirate regardless of the DRM technology. It's the moronic companies that make it worse for consumers. I will not buy another ubisoft game until they're DRM is gone. If others establish it, I will not buy the game.
And now we have to pay for these dumb asses and their cheapness.
And the only reason DRM exists is because of pirates so your argument is null. I won't buy something because of DRM but I understand why publishers are going this route.
Actually it feels like these companies are exagerrating their loses to piracy to kill of pc gaming because it isn't as profitable as consoles.
Pirates have not pushed anyone anywhere, please tell me you dont buy into that shit :shadedshu Piracy has existed since the very beginning of video games and last time i checked...the industry right now is bigger then it ever was...and is projected to keep getting bigger with no end in sight. Ever think maybe all this drm is driving more and more people to pirate? Im sorry but i hope every company that uses this crap burns to the ground.
it doesnt matter if they are exaggerating. they are the owners, the pirates are the thieves. now we all have to be treated like thieves because some people refuse to pay for a game or have some strange grudge against game companies who provide them with all of their fun.
Do you think they care what we think? Really? If that were the case they would just cease to make games for the PC. They don't need vast conspiracies.
And now comes the argument to justify theft.
Do you have ANY idea how much DRM costs these companies? Between DRM and piracy PC game publishers are getting their asses kicked. DRM is the only way to secure new investors.
So where is the logic and reason behind such intrusive DRM. It has the opposite effect it lowers sales for games and lowers customer satisfaction. The only people getting screwed are those who bay money for it.
yea you try telling your share holders your not making pc games anymore without the aid of "vast conspiracies"
Try getting investors without DRM.
Investors care about money. They do not care about the product but how their investment is protected.
obviously it is not lowering sales.
ohh but its not theft its copyright infringement
pc games have existed for 20 years without intrusive drm
copyright laws exist to protect companies from thieves. it grants the govt legal authority to levy fines and possibly jail time to those who infringe upon it.
Yeah? Did Pac Man take 25 million to develop?
did pacman spend 5 million on drm and 50 million+ on marketing?
why would anyone who pays for games condone piracy? the pirates are the ones who do not pay for the games. that means they get free stuff all provided by those of us who do actually pay. now those of us who pay have to deal with stupid drm policies.
Dude read this. Then think REALLY hard about your position.
I reckon we are going a little off topic here, lets rain it in. It's the PUBLISHERS that are calling for the DRM. They hold the final profits/sales figures.
The internet has opened the door to both the pirates and the publishers for methods to curb each other.
Remember the manual for Grand Prix? That was dang hard DRM back then.
