Re: March Discussion Topic: DRM and Piracy
Make the game as good as possible and sell it at a reasonable price and don't worry about DRM beyond maybe just a key code included in the manual.
Reasons. If it's a good game people will buy it, there is a lot of people who still prefer to buy instead of pirating. Regardless of how much DRM is placed in a game it can be broken/bypassed and pirated if someone wants to. Any intrusive DRM just makes the legal buyer have far more problems then the pirate, and/or promotes bad press (sony Rootkit etc)
That's for single player, if it was online then I would copy the Guild Wars model... cheap initial price and no monthly fees. Something must be working as they are still going strong. Infact I've just bought the bonus mission pack £5.99 and Nightfall £14.99
Though it's easy for me to say as it's not my wage packet that's at risk ;-)
Nostalgia... Isn't what it used to be
