Anyway, connecting software with DRM to an account has only disadvantages for the customer. There is no benefit in this. When i buy a copy from, i "own" that copy because i can do with this copy whatever i want. I can give to friends, i can play it on any computer without hassling with a client and/or internet connection.

I can log in to Steam at home, buy what I want, and then log in on my laptop and install the same game there if I want. No messing around, no DVD's to copy an ISO, simple. If I ever delete it, have a hardware failure, get a new system or whatever, I can just log in to my account and redownload it wherever I want. How is that not a benefit?

That's not a benefit of the DRM, GOG allows all those things as well with no DRM. Ah the joys of cognitive dissonance, although this example isn't nearly as humorous as the comments on the Origins story a couple of days ago.

The thing that blows my mind after watching the promo vid for this game yesterday is that in that video there was a reference to cybernetic enhancements being turned off at he whim of the corporation that supplied them - essentially a comment on the controlling nature of DRM. And yet the game itself uses DRM - LOL.

Although I guess in the end it is no different to a pop music musician singing a sing about how we shouldn't be greedy and learn to live together in harmony on a album published by a RIAA label...
