Namco Bandai Likes Ubi's DRM

Computer and Video Games quotes Namco Bandai Partners VP Olivier Comte on the topic of digital rights management, saying until an alternative arrives, Ubisoft's method, which requires a constant internet connection, is the way to go. That said, he does not comment to following suit: "We are analysing all of the situations. We have seen what Ubi and EA are doing, we've seen what Sony have announced for PS3 and it's clear that we need to make some choices." Adding further confusion to the matter, he doesn't seem to believe any method will actually work, bringing the point of the whole endeavor into question: "I'm convinced that whatever system you put in place you can be sure that two hours before putting it out it'll be cracked in Russia. I think that the combat against piracy is very complicated because it's very complicated to explain to a 12-year-old that drag and dropping a file on a PC is piracy - he was born with this." Thanks joao.

They've stopped making money off me.

I bought pong from Sears back in the 70's for pete's sake. My attic is full of game boxes that go all the way back to the Vic20.

The last PC game I bought was Blood Bowl. It's likely to be the last PC game I ever buy. I believe it was the only PC game I bought last year.

I did own a 360 which I used occasionally, but mostly it streamed video from my MythTV box. It RRoD'd on me a month ago and I don't plan to replace it.

I just don't see any games that interest me being made anymore. The occasional small, indie game catches my attention but not much else. WoW and all the MMORPGS seem like the most vapid time wasters since the first caveman invented masturbation.

I already own XCom, Civilization, SimCity, IL-2 and a ton of other real games. If i want multi-player, Tribes, Allegiance and Q3 can all be had for free. I can't see anything else coming that interests me, especially given all the current hubris of companies like this.

I still check Blues on a regular basis but that's less because of the gaming news and more because it's like reading an old friends blog.

Maybe things will change in a few years but that's really it for me until sanity and real innovation reappear in this dead industry.
