It's hard not to support CD Projekt. Quality games aside the way they treat their customers and fans is shockingly good compared to others these days.

I remember at one point they sent out threatening letters to IP addresses suspected of downloading their games (a very dodgy and inaccurate thing to do), though today they do DRM free digital distribution even putting their own AAA games on

I can't think of a better example of going from having one's head up their own arse to suddenly placing it almost perfectly on their shoulders.

There's no-one in the industry I'm more eager to support even if they didn't make such quality games that I personally enjoy.

Yes it sounds like a damned sales pitch, but they damn well deserve it.

You make a very good point. But the only reason they have done a 180 on their stance with regard to DRM is because they have realized the reality of the situation. And that is that removing DRM does not effect sales all that much. Obviously, if removing DRM did effect sales to a large extent they wouldn't be doing this "just" to please their customers. "Yeah, we will be bankrupt after this non-DRM relase but it's for the love of our fans". LoL. Ummm, no. They might love their fans but they don't love them THAT much.

DRM free games still sell just as well as DRM infected games for the most part. But hey, if a company can spin a monetary decision into a love for their fans, why not. I would do the same thing.

I still give them credit though for listening to their customers. Something Microsoft feels is no longer necessary for some odd reason.

Microsoft's infamous response to concerned customers. "#DEALWITHIT". I love it.
Just because you aren't afraid of something doesn't it mean it can't hurt you...
