Spore DRM Post of the Day

Spore & Piracy- EA, ESA, Analysts Weigh In on Gamasutra gathers opinions form analysts and EA to examine whether assertions that the controversial SecuROM DRM in Spore has actually harmed sales of the life simulation, rather than helped them by protecting the game from piracy. EA argues against the theory that DRM has cost them sales saying they do not automatically equate every copy of the game that's pirated as a lost sale, a contrast to claims made by many developers and publishers in the past. A couple of other opinions expressed in the article are the assertion by many that online authentication is inevitable for more PC games going forward, and Chris Remo's Penny Arcade editorial suggesting that the response to this situation represents an overreaction.

Meh, I do agree with the guy's editorial on PA that it's really becoming overblown. I always just weigh the DRM versus how I feel about the game and then make a decision.
I find that a curious statement because, to me, the very fact that the DRM actually factors into your purchase decision AT ALL means that it is not an overblown issue.
