Ok, it's cracked already. ONE day. That's all it took.

Can someone from EA now explain to me why us buyers have to suffer this futile DRM POS?. Because, obviously, it didn't do its job. Not that we didn't know it.

My god, and they keep going.

Yet another scheme that will hurt customers and will not impact pirates in the least.

Make good games. Slap a non abusive price. Everybody who buys games will buy it. The pirates who don't buy games won't buy it, whatever you do.

I've been buying Creative for almost 20 years. No more. I'm tired of their BS support and driver problems, not to mention their attitude. They seem to despise their own customers.

A pity they destroyed Aureal, the only true competition they ever had.

That's a really good beginning. Now, if they would drop that initial check, they would show that they've really learned that it's bad to inconvenience your customers without reason, be one time or every 10 days.

I'm redoing my preorder, though. Hats off to EA for one time.

Activision should stop bastardizing CoD's name with third parties.

Yeah, I know they have the rights and everything, but it's wrong, disrespectful to IW, and it dilutes the value of the brand.

Well, 200+ posts, EA is not going to take notice, cliffski (and, I guess, Derek, I bypassed 100 posts this morning) is still very rudely trying to justify the injustifiable, people still believe that DRM avoids piracy and Santa exists.

It's life as usual in Blue's.

The guys earning maybe a million a year for deciding biz strategy for billion dollar companies...

Yeah, that's exactly the problem: they're making a million a year, they're coming up with these shitty schemes, and they want us to pay for it.

I'd bet you anything that if they'd fire those idiot suits and launched the game with no DRM, they'd make a lot more profit from the game.

people who complain about stuff like this were gonna pirate it anyway

Sure!. Because people who download a crack, overwrite a couple of files and play without any hassle will have a lot of things to complain about, as opposed to people who buy the game, which needs a resident check, a net connection, and a lot of praying that SecuROM won't fuck up AGAIN this time so you'll be able to play, hoping that the useless protection scheme won't take a big bite of performance, right?.

Think, man!. The people who pirates games doesn't complain about copy protection. They don't need to!

Uh uh, REALLY stupid. SecuROM has given nothing more than problems lately, and it will be cracked in a couple of days, just like the rest.

Congrats, EA, you just lost one sale. Now go and learn from Stardock how to treat your customers, you idiots.

Seriously, who can ignore the fact that piracy is real, it exists and is the #1 threat to PC gaming?

Me, after hearing the same thing again and again for the last 20 years.

Ok, Yerli, you got a bad game with pretty graphics and sky high hardware requirements. You sold more than a million units. And you're complaining?.

Please, go join the crybabies club with CliffyB, Chris Taylor and the rest. Piracy my ass.

PS.- Yeah, we know that nowadays any sorry excuse for a game sells millions on consoles. At least be man enough to admit your true reasons.

Amen to #1

Epic and its presence in the PCGA (as that of Microsoft) is a joke.

Nowadays, all you get from Epic are stupid comments and constant whining. Mark, Cliffy, Tim, Mike, shut up and make a good game. And if you target PC, do it like you should, don't give us crap ports!

Funny seeing Florent speaking about the PC when his stubborness with SF (plus his abysmal PR) was one of the things damaging the platform and making them lose sales.

I'm glad and everything, but it is strange that Chris Taylor agreed to this after his comments about piracy last month.

Perhaps he's finally learned to shut up and concentrate on what really matters: the quality of your game.

Exactly. I buy my games, and I'm tired of hearing always all the same excuses: piracy blah blah more piracy.

Stardock and Valve are examples that if you make a good game, don't riddle it with DRM up your ass and don't overprice, everybody will buy it.

Wrong, Mr. Shelley. You make great games, but here you are dead wrong. And BTW, piracy is not stealing. Sorry.
