Blizzard on DRM

VideoGamer.com has some interesting comments from Blizzard's Frank Pearce on the topic of DRM, which he calls a "losing battle." He explains how they are using the new Battle.net as an incentive to buy the StarCraft II (thanks Joao). "If we've done our job right and implemented Battle.net in a great way people will want to be connected while they're playing the single player campaign so they can stay connected to their friends on Battle.net and earn the achievements on Battle.net," he tells them. "The best approach from our perspective is to make sure that you've got a full-featured platform that people want to play on, where their friends are, where the community is."

I've never really understood why achievements matter to people. Sure, when I get one I think, "Oh neat, I should get more!" But then I think to myself...why do I care about this. You get an achievement for...playing the game? Shouldn't the more exciting part be the actual playing? If a game tells me I need to get achievements to feel like I'm having fun, then maybe the game isn't that fun at all.

Anyhow, and yeah, his whole statement is completely invalidated by the fact that you have to have your connection to play their game at all. Well, those of us who buy it will anyhow. Those who just pirate it will enjoy their LAN games just fine with or without their internet connection.
