Re: I Understand Why.. but am disappointed
Then what went wrong with World of Goo?
A rate of unauthorised copying of around 80%. However, you neglect to include the creator's own opinion on the matter:
“by the way, just in case it’s not 100% clear, we’re not angry about piracy, we still think that DRM is a waste of time and money, we don’t think that we’re losing sales due to piracy, and we have no intention of trying to fight it.”
That's 2D Boy, telling you that you are wrong.The same 2D Boy that found that a DRM'd game in the same study had a 92% piracy rate, though not sure how they determined that.
Now, consider how many games with odious DRM get cracked. Don't you think that the first thing to do once the DRM is cracked is to remove any and all phone-home ability?
How many unauthorised copies of the latest DRM-encrusted Sim City are floating around? You know, that awful "you must be online all the time" shit that was broken within the first week? Foisted upon everyone except the people getting the game from the torrents? Do we even know?
