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.

Those fucking customers should be glad they're ALLOWED to play our games!"
You hit that nail on the head. That is the sense of entitlement that has ruined the video game industry.

How this industry manages to make money with their attitude is unbelievable.
No, it's believable because its customers are sheep. While consumers of music and movies have resisted and pushed back against DRM and similar restrictions that have been imposed or attempted by the RIAA and MPAA, consumers of video games lovingly swallow anything that game publishers and developers shove down their throats. You can't only blame these companies for taking advantage of this situation.
