And it will be impossible in the future as long as the ones, who want to "protect" their content have not superior tools in relationship to the ones, who want to "unprotect" this content. And then you still have the problem with not impacting the consumer ...

No, this is not solvable with technology. The only solution: Stop seeing un-authorized use of digital content as a problem

Which is not possible. Two contradicting goals. Preventing un-authorized use and not impacting the legit consumers experience. And third, the "foe" has the same tools for cracking the system, you used to create the system. It is NOT possible.

But as long as investors insist on minimizing certain theoretical "risks", because the rules for making business plans are demanding this, DRM will stay.

I want to try this game, but their DRM sucks.
I don't see a problem with trying this game
I only have a problem buying this game, as long as Ubisoft goes the DRM way.

Starforce apparently worked -
For about half a year, until someone figured out how this system works. That was the time of tools, who were disconnecting your dvd drive, so Starforce can be fooled with a mounted mini-image. After a year, release groups just patched everything related to Starforce from the games executables and the traditional zero-day-release was restored.

at the expense of causing serious incompatibility issues for many people of course. My drive was "starforce supported" but it would occasionally stop responding until I removed the starforce drivers with the removal tool. Not a good trade-off in my book.

That describes the problem. It IS possible to develope a non-crackable DRM. But this system has to be so restrictive, that you will loose customers because of hardware failures or just being too complicated and annoying. The more restrictive the system gets, the more customers you will loose. Starforce might have worked on a long term, but there was this class-action suit against Ubisoft. After that, nearly every publisher backed away from this system, because they all feared a massive court backlash.

So, while it is possible to make THE ultimate DRM system, you cannot use such a system, if you plan to sell millions of units.

Horrible PR backlash or not, the original Bioshock was also one of the very few PC games that managed to go uncracked for something between two and four weeks as far as I can remember.
Only, because this was new system. Anyone remember Starforce. First workarounds appeared three or four months after the first game released with Starforce. But after people knew how Starforce worked, it was easy and Starforce had become useless.

Like it or not but that was indeed a smashing success in terms of piracy protection.
Four weeks. And only for the first game released with this new system. Yeah, great success! If a publisher really wanted to prevent pirated copies, he has to use a completely new and different DRM system for every two or three games he releases.

And the game sold very well so why the fuck would they change their DRM policies?

Finally, a valid reason why some publishers still use DRM. Because it's use doesnt hurt sales enough.

So that you, Jerykk and the rest of you anti-DRM wankers can steal the game on or better yet before day zero? Aaawww. Looks like that's not gonna happen this time either huh? Too bad huh? Aaaawww... my poor little puppies..... muuuaaaahahahahahaaaa
Wanker hint: Next time, use a centerfold with some naked chicks. Works better, trust me.

And yes, it will work on all Windows OS's currently in use. Or they wouldn't allow it on Steam
No, it will NOT automatically work on all Windows OS's currently in use, because they sell it on Steam. There are plenty of games on Steam, not working (or not working properly) with the current Windows OS.

For example, the desaster about Jedi Knight + Addon. Not playable with video hardware acceleration on most current machines and even the software mode gave a lot of people a lot of headache. Or look at "Stubbs the Zombie". This game DOES NOT WORK with Windows 7 and they still selling it, not mentioning a damn thing to their potential customers. Or look at Gothic 2, which is a new entry. This game does not work with the combination Windows 7 an Nvidia cards. Does it say anything about that on the shop page, that you have to use an ATI card, if you are planning to use Windows 7 with this game? No, they just sell it and let the customers pray, they hopefully will receive a refund after complaining.

And dont get me started on several regional version lockups (for example the first Warhammer4k series) , which Steam still fails to report correctly on the shop pages. But that is another thing ...

To really like Steam, you have to live in the States and use XP or Vista. Any other country or current Windows OS? Good luck! You'll need it ...

Or a decent game interface/control for mouse/keyboard users?

Yeah who needs games those crappy EA published titles like Mass Effect, Dead Space, Dragon Age, Mirror's Edge and so on? Rolleyes
I don't "need" them. They are just games. And ... there are PLENTY good games to play, even for me choosy bastard. Games i still want to play (because the day has only 24 h) or games i want to play again, because they are just full of fun and joy. If EA, heck, if all majors disappear over night without a trace, and are never coming back, i still have games to play for a decade. And when i'm done, there are new companies, lots of indies.

Really, i don't need EA. Not a fuckin bit.

You are aware of the difference between a game in the early developement stages and a finished game?

And to think it's made by the same people who make Total War, my favorite game series of all time.
Not exactly ... Stormrise was made by The Creative Assembly Australia, not from the people behind the Total War series. But this is only a minor detail, CA was still responsible for releasing this POS onto the world.

Jade Empire was advertised as being in the tradition of NWN?
It says so on the back of my box. And nearly no tester and reviewer said, that Jade Empire was NOT a CRPG. That was the time, i started downloading games before eventually buying them.

Man, i was sooo pissed after loosing the first few fights against some lowly bandits over and over again. And after reaching the beach, where you have the first real combat, i stopped playing, de-installed and never came back.

Though Jade Empire gets a lot of hate ...

Well, they advertised this game as a RPG, like "in the tradition of Neverwinter Nights", so that people like me, who play RPGs for a reason, were very, VERY upset because Jade Empire is nothing more than a glorified BeatEmUp. Streetfighter with a story. Thats what it is and as THAT it should have been advertised. So that people like me could stay away, because we suck hard at these kind of games

You can defend this guy if you want, or rather, his "intentions", but his intentions "overwhelming what needed to be done" are what gamers are pissed at. Which makes all the right reasons to be pissed at him, IMO.

I agree. Because the road to Hell is paved with good intentions ... and George laid brick after brick after brick ...
