    It's like Osama Bin Laden turning up at a Stop The War march. Complete joke.

    Well, it's one way for Sony to make sure noone would want to buy PC games any longer. That, in turn, solves the problem of actually *making* games for the PC platform.

    I really can't imagine buying a game with DRM...

    Steam is a method for having DRM, but not intrusive. By the way, I was going to buy Burnout Paradise the Ultimate Box thru Steam and saw that I have to register in EA, and this:

    "INCLUDES SOFTWARE THAT COLLECTS DATA ONLINE NECESSARY TO PROVIDE INGAME ADVERTISING."

    Isn't this Spyware? :) I remember when EA and other publishers were saying that they might advance with these kind of things and that it would help to bring the games prices down... I really don't see the difference...

    You have got to be kidding me, the major force in destroying the PC games industry joins the organisation dedicated to saving it.

    Uh.

    They are aware of the irony in this? Tell me they are? This is all some plot just to get a few people laughing?

    Oh well. Time to bury this radioactive pile of ****.

    It would be more believable if they had joint the Menacing Cracking Alliance (MCA) or Razor1911 or The Union to name a view

    Atleast now we know what Activision Blizzard's budgetary concern was:
    Can't afford to be associated with SecuRom!

    YAY! I love it! More funny moments when installing a game and then, heaven forbid, actually trying to play it. [/sarcasm]

    What's next? Blizzard turns to console-only games?

    I'm surprised that by now, these companies don't reliase that using such restrictive DRM tools only *enforces* the piracy of said games.

    I'm not going to buy a game with something like SecuROM in it. I'd rather get a de-DRM'd one off the newsgroups and donate the cost of the game to the publisher via paypal or something.
