I can't believe half of the posts here contribute NOTHING to the table. The best DRM is NOT *i know
* NO DRM. It is the people who do not pay for games that F it up for the law abiding person.
Like someone else said in another thread. A few years back pirating was at its HIGHEST before DRM was implemented. If it wasn't then I'm sure it was on the rise to that point.
If there was no DRM, considering there would be no replacement, a huge percentage more of people would pirate these games, and hurt the industry. It may be a matter of XXX millions vs XX millions, but it is business. If this happened the quality of games would take a dump.
As far as a replacement for DRM. How can you police the market when you have people who complain about the inconvenience? This happens in real life issues as well. Perfect example is airport security.
I think DRM is here for a reason. I do not see how you can implement a validation without connection to the internet. CD keys were suppose to do this but look what happened. Keygens....
One last thing. LOL at all you people who don't buy games with DRM included. You are missing out on some AMAZING games that ARE quality games. Ironic is it not? You buy a game if it is worthy of the purchase but it cannot have DRM....
