If they started making better games that were finished at launch and didn't screw over foreign versions with delayed releases and annoying censorship, as well as inflated prices depending on the region (obviously those last reasons aren't the faults of the studios) then maybe they'd cut down on piracy.
Quite easy:
1. You need to know, if non-commercial software piracy hurts sales.
2. If no, ignore it and make the best possible product for your paying customers.
3. If yes, you have to determine how much.
3. If this is just a minor annoyance, barely distinguishable from statistical fluctuations, fuck it, go to 2.
4. If not, do something to minimize piracy and go to 2. because DRM does NOTHING to prevent piracy.

So ... what do you do? Right! Make the best possible product for your paying customers! Make them paying customers. Make them throw money at you, because THEY WANT TO THROW MONEY AT YOU and not because you forced them to.

Christ!

The myth that the two groups are mutually exclusive of one another really needs to die.
But it's a convenient myth. It makes good "bad guys". No need for self criticism, no need for overhauling a business model, no need for telling the truth and admitting errors. Just blame teh pirates!

I have no idea, the truth is my puny brain cant handle the marketing genius behind this PR idea...
It isnt a marketing or PR idea. Its just a Creative Director of a game project, who has no clue about sales, revenue and the changes of digital distribution.

He is like this Creative Director from TQH, Michael Fitch, who blamed ALL THOSE PESKY PIRATES for the closure of Iron Lore Studios (Titan Quest). The real reasons behind the closure, the lack of a proper timed new project after the Soulstorm-Addon for W4K and therefore the need to finance a studio with no actual project to work on ... just a guy saying stupid things about something he knows nothing about.

I'll wait for the source code release of Rage. Maybe then someone fix this texture popups?
You willing to wait 8 years or so?
Why not? More and more i have a tendency to play games long after release. I work, i have family, the spare time for games becomes less and less. Patience has become a virtue

And if there isn't a fix ... there are other games to have fun with without experiencing technical difficulties. Rage isn't a must-have title.

You own games when you buy a disc with an offline copy protection. You own games when you buy game data with no DRM involved.

Actually (in most cases), that's a license, too. Read the EULA.
Mostly the EULA is just a piece of text. A publisher cant take away my game when i bought it on a disc. In case of Steam and others the EULA is enforceable, the publisher CAN take away the licence i rented.

With Steam you pay money, download, and own the game to your account forever.
You own NOTHING! You rent a licence. You own a game, when no third party is capable of removing this game. You own games when you buy a disc with an offline copy protection. You own games when you buy game data with no DRM involved.

I have two dozen games in my Steam account, I like Steam for being a very comfortable and convinient distribution plattform. But i do not own games on Steam unless i remove the Steam integration with a crack. THEN i own the games i bought. Before, i just rent them.

Super hypocritical considering the game uses Steam no matter where you buy it. Even if you love Steam it is still DRM. Make Steam optional for Hard Reset and then you won't sound like a hypocrite.
Yup. Make your peace with your former coworkers from CD Project and sell this shit on GOG.

Yep, lost a sale just like that.
Allegedly Ubisoft lost 90% of their PC sales since the introduction of their own DRM scheme two years ago. Michael Pachter, who's the origin of these rumours, may be a douchebag, but he HAS very good contacts inside the industry.

Thank you, TL devs. The plate is overflowing right now, as you've correctly guessed.
Thats right. Bought my last game two months ago, still havent finished it. Too much work, too much weird social life. Gaming time has become scarce these days

Please take your U.K.-only offer/marketing tactic and kindly shove it up your ass.
I dont mind them making regional advertising deals of products i dont consider of ever being attracted to.

But alas, the market has spoken, and the market shall get what it thinks it wants.
No, not the market. The major publishers have spoken. There is a market for other shooters, but it is not big enough to sustain a multinational corporation like EA oder ActiBlizz. These companies have to go for multimillion dollar revenues and the mass market, they cannot afford to make games for a smaller target group.

So yeah, just wait, the "Steam Hating Tinfoil Hat Brigade" should be here soon to show us that this is a non-issue and that Steam is horrible and Origin is the messiah. Or whatever.
There are people defending Origin whilst attacking Steam? I thought, the "Steam haters" just hate Origin for the same reasons they hate Steam?

No way! Stats are half the fun! Just ignore the cheaters and keep plugging away!
Stats are not gameplay. This is working. People only like that, because they are victims of purposly implemented addictive reward mechanisms, which have replaced actual gameplay in most modern games.

Some of them may hate DRM, yes.

Some other customers aka emotional addicts will do whatever you say. You can rape them and they still thank you for your kindness, when you give them an old rag that they can clean themselves up. THATS the people you should cherish as your customers.

My guess main gripe is there's no compare feature for items.
What about the red and green numbers on the bottom of the screen, signaling worse or better stats in comparison to the eqipped item?
