I'm sure all our angry buddies could just go back there and rerate it.

How childish. The game itself wasnt bad at all so rating it one star because EA's shareholders want some sort of DRM is rediculous. Had no one ever said that there was SecureRom or the like, no one would have been none the wiser. This is just something, for people who like to *****, to ***** about.

While I don't agree with the numbers, when it comes to it most people don't really care (some don't even know). I say 70% or so is a more accurate estimate. People say they're pissed at the DRM issue, yet they still buy the damn things; if that doesn't say "I don't care about DRM just give me my game" I don't know what does.

I wouldn't be surprised if this 99.8% number is based on actual data...e.g. the number of "formal complaints about the DRM in Spore received by EA customer service" divided by the number of copies shipped. Obviously that's all BS spin, but it gives them the capability to spew this nonsense.

The reality is what has already been said: 99% of Spore buyers probably don't even know what DRM is; or if they do, what the specific issues with SecuROM actually are. The fact that the majority of the populace are ignorant sheep does not mean that what's being done to them is justifiable.

I could care less. DRM is a necessary evil. The companies don't want it either, since they have to PAY FOR IT.

I know, I know, Sins of a Solar Empire and other games have been big hits without DRM.

Honestly, I have never been directly affected by any DRM on any of my games.

I'd bet EA took the number of low ratings posted on Amazon and put it up against the number of copies Spore that sold. Now that's skewing the numbers baby!

Much better, eh?
If only that was true. Sadly there are very few of us who are willing to miss out on what could be good games because we refuse to buy the DRM laden game and tell EA that DRM is perfectly fine and to keep doing it.

It's only going to stop when people stand up for their rights and stop buying the games.

It's ironic but the only way out of this is for more people to pirate the games. That would tell developers that people want to play the games, but certain aspects - such as DRM are preventing them from buying the games.

So if they loose the DRM and, even better reduce the price of games, more people would want to buy the games.
